    Decent for what it offers...

    This book gets a 4 star rather than 3 ONLY because it is one of the only readily available motion books for the figure. Some of the poses can really open the floodgates of the imagination too not to mention no model could hold these. However, like it's sibling book The Nude Figure, it is terribly grainy at times, in B&W, and undiversified both ethnically and bodily. Get this ONLY as a companion to Life Nudes Art Models which is the finest general figure pose book I've found! Get this strictly for the motion ideas within, otherwise impossible poses in the studio.

    O.K. secondary reference book

    The book has some great action poses but, alot are grainy and very dark in areas. You can't see how the body is reacting to the stress applied to it. And,lighting is not great on several pictures. In all, if you are just starting to learn how to draw figures it's O.K.
