The Art of Figure DrawingBook - 2003
The Art of Figure Drawing is a practical guide to realistic figure drawing that combines direct observation of the human form with an analytical study of anatomy, perspective, light and shade, and composition. Robins teaches how to draw the figure realistically in a classic style. He begins with a lively presentation of practical information. Perspective and anatomy are introduced with the aim of arming readers with the information they need to make convincing drawings. Step by step demonstrations illustrate the drawing process, with each demo focusing on various mediums and time constraints. Throughout the book are inspiring examples of finished drawings accompanied by captions pointing out how theory is expressed in practice to achieve the desired artistic effects.
