How to Draw and Figure Drawing: Learn to Draw from the Masters - How to Draw People, How to Draw Animals & How to Sketch

Learn How to Draw People (Figure Drawing) and Animals

“AN UNUSUAL OPPORTUNITY is afforded the reader of this book, the chance to “study under” the old masters, once the privilege of a selected few. These artistic giants discovered —and used to perfection—many fundamental principles in the course of their careers. These basic rules and scientific theories made their art-craft more certain for them, as they will for you.

The wide appeal of this book should include everyone from the serious professional, whose interest will lie in the fine collection of sketches and drawings made by the masters themselves—to the newly interested amateur—who will benefit greatly from the simply-presented information. All students of art will find something of value in this book, most will find it useful and instructive, all will find it valuable and entertaining.

Profusely illustrated chapters on everything from “Perspective” and “Composition” to figure drawing and “Nudes” will be found. Special attention has been given to “Anatomy and Action” and to “Figure Drawing” due to the importance of these subjects to the working illustrator. Chapters on “How to Draw Animals” and “How to Sketch Nudes” stress the need for quick studies in sketching. All chapters contain useful tips and general information on the various subjects covered.”
