Drawing the Human Body: An Anatomical Guide

Drawing the Human Body: An Anatomical Guide Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Every artist longs to portray the human figure in all its expressiveness and sculptural beauty. To do so requires a well-balanced mix of science and creative vision, an understanding both of anatomy and each individual body's emotional eloquence. Overflowing with sketches that capture a wondrous repertoire of angles and positions; pointers that, one by one, focus on all the details of the body; and close-ups that show emotion-packed expressions as well as precise musculature--this is the guide that shows the way to bringing people to life on paper. Through his own expert illustrations, the author shows the male and the female body from front, sideways, and back; reveals typical proportions; describes, in frontal, lateral, and dorsal projections, each part of the skeleton and each muscle; comments on morphology of the head, neck, shoulder and more; and offers a plethora of gestures and action positions. Every drawing is proof of how technique and imagination come together to create superb art.
