    The Best!

    Mr. Hogarth is a Legend! This is a wonderful follow up to his original book on Anatomy Drawing. His explanations and details are immensely helpful to any aspiring artists, regardless, of whether one is drawing for enjoyment or for one's profession.
    You cannot go wrong with this illustrated book and it will greatly improve one's artistic ability by emulating his techniques or concepts.
    For example, he teaches for one to draw for the torso and pelvis out, instead of head and other body parts, because when one draw from those starting points, one creates a unrealistic perspective; i.e., one that is not anatomical. So, by drawing (boxing out) the pelvis and torso, one can then position the figure in any direction while maintaining true anatomical perspective.
    Ostensibly, Mr. Hogarth explains it much more thoroughly and better...

    Great for drawing practice

    I used this book to practice the essentials of human figures drawing. Book teaches you systematically fundamentals by showing the proportions of each possible action figures and helps you to visualize the human body in almost every possible form. In case you don't have a model, it is very helpful for improving your drawing skills by going through every page and sketching each possible action form.

    Excelent Book

    This book has thought me so much in drawing and creating my own human figures. After reading this book, I can now sit down and create caracters which i never thought posible. This book is a must have if you want to know how to create figures and understand how body parts interact to effect diffrent parts of your drawing.
