Anatomy and Figure Drawing Artistas Handbook: A Comprehensive Guide to the Art of Drawing the Human Body

Anatomy and Figure Drawing Artistas Handbook: A Comprehensive Guide to the Art of Drawing the Human Body Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This practical handbook gives art students a comprehensive guide to human anatomy, offering instruction in a wide range of media that includes pencils, inks, pastel chalks, charcoal, and crayons. The author presents step-by-step projects designed to build art students' confidence as they progress from easy to advanced techniques, and discusses common mistakes with suggested methods to correct them. She also advises on the use of maquettes--miniature mannequins with flexible body joints--as a practical substitute when a live sitter is unavailable, or when a pose is difficult for models to maintain for lengthy periods. The book's primary purpose is to give students an understanding of how the human body is constructed by demonstrating a wide variety of natural poses and presenting exercises for each of them. Handsome and instructive color illustrations on most pages.
