To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is not a conventional book on life drawing, and gives quite a bit of focus to the clothed human figure. For me, the most interesting parts of the book are those which illustrate different ways of using blocks of shading to suggest parts of the human figure, often with gaps which the brain fills in.
For someone who has been mostly self taught, this book is so useful! I used to sometimes struggle with getting down basic figures of people, but this book made it easier to draw people. It's looser than other guidelines I've read that make you draw so tightly, with all the boxes and various other shapes. Not to say that approach doesn't have its merits, but in Sketching People, it has you draw more loosely which allows you to find the flow and movement of a body since people aren't machines after all. I still look at this book from time to time and would definitely recommend.
You need good drawings to learn from if not you'll just delay your own progress. A better choice would be Glen Vilppu's Vilppu drawing manual or Michael Hampton's design and invention. There are some ok drawings inside but if your only source of learning is from this book, you might not be able to tell the good ones from the bad ones, so it's better to just get other books..
