Start with a heart shape . . . and end with a beautiful finished piece of art!You’ll love Jane Davenport’s fabulous, fun, and amazingly easy technique for drawing figures. For aspiring artists, drawing people can be intimidating—but it doesn’t have to be. Over years working as a fashion illustrator, Jane Davenport devised her own method of creating in-proportion figures. Her clever core technique involves using equal-size hearts to build the body’s structure. And Jane’s results have been astounding: her students go from “I can’t draw a stick figure” to producing gorgeous, well-proportioned illustrations. After laying out the basics, her imaginative guide walks you through working with different mediums; drawing the head, face, clothing, hair, and features; and constructing figures inspired by fashion, fantasy, life drawing, and more.

I get a little giddy just thinking about how amazing this book is! Not kidding! There is so so much information packed into this book focusing on figure drawing. That sounds pretty dry and boring, right? But not the way Jane Davenport presents it. She breaks things down so you don’t have to spend a fortune at a fancy art school in Paris because Jane already did that and now she’s sharing her vast amount of knowledge with you. She starts with basics but then gets right down into the details that most classes just never get to. How to draw feet & hands, how to draw a figure that’s twisting, how to draw different body types. If you have never taken one of Janes online art courses I encourage you to join in with the class that will accompany this book. She’ll be presenting it “live” and after having done the live Supplies me class for the last month, I’m hooked. I’d also recommend her beautiful faces book. Join the Jane Davenport FB group to see what people are already creating! We love you Jane!! ~ Chrissy
