Did you know there are 206 bones in the adult human body?
If you’re studying human anatomy, either as an artist or for a high school or college course, you may not need to know all of these bones. You will, however, probably need to know some of the basic human bones, such as the femur, the radius, and the sternum.
If you need to review the human skeleton for an upcoming test or quiz, this page provides several free human skeleton diagrams to help you study.
There are 6 worksheets to choose from. The first two show the labeled human skeleton. One is in color, and the other is in black and white. Finally, the last set of printables show a blank human skeleton. This sheet is best for artists looking for a reference image.
These printables a free for subscribing members of Tim’s Printables. Already a member? Please remember to log in. Not yet a member? Join today! Alternatively, these printables can be purchased as an individual digital download without a membership.

I have a free YouTube video that shows how to make a bead and paper tube skeleton marionette (https://youtu.be/6JExdmnD6xE). In it, I use a printed skeleton drawing like this one to help to get the proportions right. I have a couple of printable info sheets available on my site but direct the viewers to another site for the skeleton drawing. Is it okay if I provide one of these drawings as a free downloadable PDF on my own website if I also provide a link to this site?
No. Please only use a link.
We make our own lab manual and need a labeled image of a human skeleton. Yours is such a clear and understandable image! Could we include it in our lab manual? We just charge students the cost of copying, so it isn’t a money making proposition. Thanks for considering.
Yes that’s fine if it’s for noncommercial purposes.
your diagram was very useful and helpful in my biology exams
Thanks Tim, came in handy for Bio class!
Thanks Tim am a student and ur diagram has really helped me to study
I liked the diagram for my learning children
This was great to use for Anatomy.
Thanks for your blank and labelled skeleton. These are great for us to use for our student’s learning anatomy and physiology. 🙂
Lovely clear diagram.
I am a student learning Body Massage and am looking for blank, black and white pictures of the body for research and homework. At moment I am concentrating on back anatomy in form of skeleton, muscles, which I need to colour in and label to show I know what I am talking about.
I am finding it hard to find anything online until I came across your webpage with skeleton.
Do you only do skeleton in anterior pose?
The illustration you see in this blog post is the only one of the skeleton that I have published so far.
