Description: Budding artists can master the toughest and most treasured technique of all: portraying the beauty, grace, and personality of the human body. This wonderful tutorial, and a variety of inspiring sketches on every page, provide the solid technical foundation needed to depict every type of figure-young or old, male or female, standing, sitting, or in motion-and with style. Intricately detailed drawings, some with grids, help capture the correct proportions for head, torso, arms, and legs add light and shadow for tonal depth and create texture, volume, and expressive lines. A thorough study of the nude and the development of preliminary sketches make this an extraordinary value. Summary: One of the better new books for beginners Rating: 5 "Art of Drawing the Human Body" This is one of the better books on human figure drawing. There are lots of illustrations of the human figure. Typically, figure drawing books have a length of approximately 120 pages. This book has 159 or so. The critical element in any figure drawing text is the HUMAN FIGURE PUPPET. Artists can demonstrate these figures with several geometrical devices. For example, the PUPPET can be drawn using BLOCK shapes for torso & limbs. Alternatively, the author can show the PUPPET with EGG-SHAPES or CONES. Another method is to use TRIANGLES for the torso, limbs & head. The important thing is that the author have sufficient examples for the student to copy. This book covers: HUMAN PROPORTION, PROBLEMS IN DRAWING THE HUMAN FIGURE, the FEMALE, CHILD, and ELDERLY, HEAD & FACE, TORSO (front & back), LIMBS (upper & lower), HANDS, PELVIS, FEET LINES & RYTHM (of the figure), SOFT LINE & IT's MODULATION, DRAWING NEGATIVE SPACE, STANDING, SEATED, & RECLINING FIGURES, FORESHORTENING & PERSPECTIVE, LIGHT & SHADOW (in the human figure), and the CONTRAPASTO STANCE ... TONAL DRAWING and CHIAROSCURO, HATCHING.... These are not all, but about 2/3rds of the subjects covered in ART OF DRAWING THE HUMAN BODY, and every one of these subjects is supported by some of the finest illustrations and examples to be found in any figure drawing texts. As stated before, the HUMAN PUPPET is the critical illustration in a figure drawing book. Here, they are not only shown in passive states. Many of these are shown in dynamic action, which is an excellent kind of lesson material. Many are leaping, throwing, running, while others are passive, reclining and sitting in numerous postures. The books shows how to draw the human figure with a methodology that is part of the CLASSICAL TRADITION, as part of a system that has been used often in the past, and it is better than the majority of the newer texts, many of which suffer from the limitations of INVISIBLE PROBLEM SOLVING that is to say, many of the white bread, fast food texts which publishers are throwing out, fail to illustrate (with rough sketch examples) the principles articulated in the text. Beginners must choose drawing books carefully. My own reviews list some very good ones, and I do not shy from indicationg those to be avoided. The price of ART OF DRAWING THE HUMAN BODY is reduced by Amazon to $14.00, making this one of the best bargains for beginning students of figure drawing. -Bruce Bain, Englewood Colorado
