This is an excellent book that gives great advice on drawing human anatomy by breaking it down to simple 3D Geometric shapes and going from there. It covers all areas of the human body from skeleton to the muscular system to the skinned human being. The only con I can say is that it focuses mainly on the male figure. There are small parts of the female figure, but not nearly as much as the male. Overall a great buy.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
