Overview

The newest entry in the beautiful Art of Drawing series presents one of the most popular and important topics in the fine arts: realistically capturing human anatomy and the nude on paper. Richly illustrated, with every anatomical explanation shown in detail, it puts each concept into practice through sequences of drawings that show the intricacies of muscular and skeletal structure. Budding artists will visually grasp general concepts of anatomy and proportion; learn formulas for constructing the figure; travel part by part through the torso, arms, legs, head, hands, and feet; and see how to depict lifelike movement and poses. Then, they can show off their new knowledge in several projects, including a male body drawn in color pencil and a woman’s back done in charcoal and sanguine.

    A very useful and interesting book.

    This book has probably been the most helpful drawing guide I've ever owned. It helped me greatly with my drawings of the human figure, with many different techniques and construction formulas in mediums such as charcoal, sanguine, and pencil. It demonstrates drawing not only the human body as it is seen, but also works very well with the muscles and bones that provide the shape of the body. Very well-done resource images.

    I highly recommend this book to any beginning artist having trouble with anatomy.
