An Introduction to Drawing the Human Body, Paperback Book

An Introduction to Drawing the Human Body Paperback

Part of the Art of Drawing series


In this technical guide, Civardi imparts a thorough and intelligent understanding of how to draw the human body.

Written with clarity and enthusiasm, and using numerous examples of his own work as teaching aids, Civardi provides the reader with a firm grounding in observation, anatomy, proportion, body structure, perspective and composition.

The exploration of static versus dynamic poses provides the artist with an invaluable source of ideas and inspiration, and towards the end of the book is a series of exercises designed to stimulate the reader, and reinforce and consolidate his or her understanding of the text.

This is a rigorous, in-depth treatment of the subject, suitable for novice artists seeking a comprehensive introduction to drawing the human form as well as more experienced artists wishing to learn more about this fascinating subject.
