It has a nifty tool where by using sliders you can adjust the transparency of various parts of the body. For example if you want to see the circulatory system and the bone structure just slide the away the skin, muscles etc to reveal the structure underneath.
For studying anatomy, it's great. You can see the the various underlying layers of muscle using the slider. There's both male and female figures too. The only downside is that while it's possible to see the figure 360 degrees, you have move your cursor way off the screen just to be able to see certain angles of the body, and this chops the image off in awkward places. Also you can't really adjust the figure's pose either. It's not great for pose reference but it's a handy tool for learning anatomy and it's just fun to play around with too.

Hi, there. I don't think we've been introduced. I'm Michael, Sequential Salon's resident writer-with-no-artistic-talent-whatsoever.
Anyway, Lynne asked at the last meeting for more posting, so I thought I would help out by sharing some about the books on my writer's reference shelf. I have two reference shelves, really; one is general reference for stuff I might want to put into stories someday, and the other is books on writing. Of course, there's no substitute for actually writing, but this stuff is helpful nonetheless. Some of it's comics-specific, some of it isn't, but it's all about story, so that's all right.
Under the cut, because goodness there's a lot of this stuff.

BWAHAHAHAHA! It's so funny because it's true. Ok, now I'm sad.

He shares scientific research on how the brain comes to those 'A, ha!' moments, why brainstorming doesn't work, how criticism is essential for creativity, and other tidbits on how creativity works. Planning to check out the book eventually.
