Synopsis

This outstanding reference by a foremost instructor on drawing the human figure explains in simple language the structures underlying the surface form of the human body. Taking his cue from Michelangelo, who considered the understanding of human anatomy "essential to good draftsmanship," the author--a former professor at the Institute of Anatomy at University College in London--thoroughly covers all aspects of human musculature, the skeleton, joints, movement, and more.
From the head down to the foot, and from the skeleton outward to fat and its effect on surface form, the text meticulously examines a wide array of topics, among them the muscles and skeleton of the head, upper and lower limbs, and the trunk. The mechanism of erect posture is carefully considered, as is the distribution of fat in the body and limbs.
More than 160 illustrations--including cross-sections, diagrams, and more--enhance this splendid reference for students and professional artists.
