9780891343745: Realistic Figure Drawing

Realistic Figure Drawing offers hundreds of beautiful figure drawings executed in Sheppard's classical, timeless style. Each of the ten chapters opens with a brief introduction, followed by illustrations presenting the key ideas about drawing the figure. Through studying these drawings, and honing your own skills through practice, you'll learn how to:

  • Capture the dynamic action of the figure
  • Render the figure in light and shade
  • Proportion the figure so it has dignity and grace
  • Draw the masses and forms of the figure accurately

From School Library Journal:

YA-- An excellent choice to supplement life-drawing instruction in the classroom. Technical information on anatomy, proportion, lighting, weight distribution, and foreshortening is discussed. Beyond this, however, Sheppard shows how to render various figure types and how to capture the figure in motion. The use of a variety of media gives the book an added dimension. Two hundred drawings done in a classical style illustrate the points. They are often accompanied by diagrams to explain the underlying form. The text is informative and written in a way that gives the feeling of having an instructor at hand.
