about

How often does an aspiring artist read a book or take a class on drawing the human body, only to end up with page after page of stiff lifeless marks rather than the well-conceived figure the course promised?

Though there are many books on drawing the human figure, none teach how to draw a figure from the first few marks of the quick sketch to the last virtuosic stroke of the finished masterpiece, let alone through a convincing, easy-to-understand method.

Editorial Reviews

"Finally a book that emphasises gesture and rhythm first and foremost. I think the book is weighted just right for making it clear to the current photo copyist culture, and the overly medicalized anatomy culture, that gesture, rhythm, and playful, designed proportion are by far the most important initial visual ideas. Not only for the figure, but for entire images." - Erik Olsen, faculty at College of Creative Studies, Detroit
