How to Draw the Head and Figure - Manikins for Drawing



I was asked where to get a model head like that shown in the e-book The Life in Figure Drawing. It turns out there is a new product made by a sculptor called the Facial Feature Model.
Go to Blick Art Materials and search for "Facial Feature Model" in the search box. It comes in 5 ethnic varieties: Europe/England, Asia/China, Africa/Cameroon, Asia/India and South America/Columbia.

Here are some related products.

A manikin for anatomical studies is Female Anatomy Figure: Version 1.






And, if you are interested there are the regular artist's manikins: Art Alternatives 12 inch Male Manikin, plus this hand manikin: Wooden Hand Manikin- Adult Right Hand and these inexpensive 4-1/2 Inch Wood Artists Manikins.
