Overview

Concise and uniquely organized, this outstanding guide teaches the essentials of anatomical rendering. Author Diana Stanley presents numerous illustrations and instructions covering the key aspects of anatomy, without the distractions of unnecessarily extensive technical details that many art students find discouraging.
Four major sections constitute the book, with studies of the trunk, the head and neck, the upper limb, and the lower limb. Each section features full coverage of the skeleton, the muscles, and their surface forms. The emphasis throughout is on relating anatomical structure to the actual surface appearance of the body, both at rest and in motion. Sixty-four exceptionally clear and instructive illustrations include diagrams of skeleton and muscle structure, as well as superb examples of figure drawing.
This affordably priced and easy-to-reference manual represents an invaluable addition to the library of every artist — student and professional.
