A wonderous fuck-ton of anatomy/drawing reference books.
If you’re looking for something book-wise, here are my top ten recommendations to you all. If you’re interested solely in anatomy (not necessarily for drawing), go for the two below the top row (not saying those can’t also be for drawing; they can, which is why they’re included). Be certain you look through some of the pages of these books before buying; don’t be an asshole like me and assume high ratings and a plethora of praise mean the book is great (that’s not where I got these from; I’ve seen the pages and approved). And identify what it is you’re looking to improve on and whether the book’ll help with that or not; know which style you interpret best (digital 3D, sketches, photographs, emphasized exaggerations, realistic illustration, medical charts, tangible 3D clay modles, etc.) Enjoy.
Plus, if you’re looking for biomechanics, you can check this one out:
