The artistic representation of the human body has fascinated and inspired millions throughout the centuries; it is also one of the most difficult forms for artist to recreate. Movement, proportion, expression, as well as the details of anatomy, leave many artists frustrated. In The Big Book of the Human Figure, the challenges of the human structure are explored in four comprehensive sections covering:
- Basic anatomy and proportion, effects of light on the figure, and the nude
- Understanding the dressed figure and creating atmosphere
- Interpreting the figure through variations of color and style
- An approach to the portrait and elements of the face
Fully illustrated throughout and filled with clear, step-by-step instructions, notes on technique, and more, this book is an excellent tool for helping artists of all levels master the graceful beauty of the human form.
