Draw Natural and Believable Clothed Figures

In Drawing People, award-winning illustrator and instructor Barbara Bradley provides all the information you need to render clothed human figures with energy, detail and control.

Bradley begins by teaching the basics of any drawing, including proportion, perspective and value. Next, you'll learn how to overcome the special challenges posed by clothing, including fabric folds and draping effects. Bradley illustrates how they're constructed and how to draw them in different situations - on male and female figures that are active or at rest.

These reliable, proven drawing techniques will add a natural feel to your art, resulting in figures that look as if they could walk, run or dance right off the page.

Synopsis:

A complete course in drawing, Drawing People focuses on the clothed person as opposed to the nude figure. The first part of the book discusses the necessary parts of any drawing--proportion, perspective and value. Part two deals with drawing folds and drapery. Author Barbara Bradley shows readers how they can use folds in their drawings, how they're constructed, and how to draw them on people. She also includes information on how to draw different clothing on people, discussing types of fabrics and how they fold. The final section of the book includes all the tips readers need to complete their figures, including drawing heads and hands accurately and special instructions for drawing children.
