These two volumes attempt to cover much of the same material: the principles of proportion, structure, posture, rhythm, and volume of the body. Both authors are accomplished artists, teachers, and writers. But while Civardi gives us a basic manual on drawing nudes in black and white, Raynes uses color and offers an in-depth analysis of skeletal and muscle structure, meticulous examples of light and shadow, and extensive photographs of both nude and clothed models. Raynes is a three-time winner of the Artist's Choice Practical Art Instruction Book of the Year Award (UK); his work is highly recommended for all collections.
