Constructive Anatomy is George B. Bridgman's excellent book of anatomical drawing instruction. Ideal for beginning to intermediate artists, Constructive Anatomy begins with instruction on drawing hands and works its way through the human body giving detailed instruction on how to draw realistic human figures. Bridgman's drawing methodology builds upon the analysis of human anatomy, how the skeleton fits together, and how muscle sits upon the skeleton to create the human form. Once an artist comprehends the anatomical construction of the human body great confidence can be gained in realistically depicting the human body. With consideration to three dimensional perspective and how figures look as they move through space Constructive Anatomy provides a foundation for life drawing that the aspiring artist can build upon throughout their artistic life.
