The Art of Figure Drawing The Complete Guide to Classic Techniques


by Clem Robins

"One of the most important things to remember as artists is that we must be poets, not reporters." --Clem Robins

While it's often said that students must learn to draw what they see, learning to see with understanding is just as crucial to create truly accurate drawings. In The Art of Figure Drawing--a concise guide to rendering the male and female form in the classic style--Clem Robins teaches readers everything they need to know to master this valuable, challenging skill.

This practical guide combines direct observation of the human form with an analytical study of anatomy, perspective, light, shade and composition. Each chapter includes a finished drawing to illustrate its theme, along with explanatory text and annotated drawings or step-by-step demonstrations.
