Description

Understand the human body and transform your art with bestselling author and teacher Jake Spicer.


Informative and instructive, this comprehensive guide will give you all the tools you need to draw the human figure, from life and from a screen. While many books focus on just one aspect of figure drawing, this manual unites the skills of observation, expression and understanding in one coherent approach. Beginning with the key principles of observation, Figure Drawing will help you to build a strong foundation of skills to make well-observed, proportionally accurate drawings. As the book progresses you will explore processes and exercises that move beyond the purely observed to express the gesture, form and substance of your model.

  • Photographic and illustrative examples throughout the book support your learning at every step.
  • Clear step-by-step tutorials provide a practical understanding of the key materials, skills and ideas in figure drawing.
  • A comprehensive anatomical reference section, broken down into manageable zones, deepens your knowledge of the human form.

The book is a Swiss-bound paperback, designed to lie flat when open and in use.

Jake Spicer's instructional art books have sold more than 300,000 copies worldwide, including more than 100,000 Nielsen TCM in the UK.

Instructive step-by-steps unpack methods for artists of all abilities.
