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.
Giving one less star only because the book came in bad, thin packaging that caused dents on its hardcover and some black stains.
However the book is great! Genuine print and quality. Writer is simply one of the best in her class. A great treasure for a beginner who has dream to draw human figure accurately with or without a model.
I really enjoy the book and am following it religiously to learn human figure drawing as accurately as possible. This book leans more on theory side than on the drawing side. However, if one is an absolute beginner and self-learner in this branch, I feel like one should also buy a companion book for basic human figure drawing from classical writers like George Bridgman,Andrew Loomis, Burne Hogarth or Peck.
At first go through it looks good. So nice to see bot sexes treated equally and the comparisons work well, also the colour coding on the muscle groupings makes thing so much clearer. I also liked the different approaches to gesture and contour drawings.
Clear drawings showing the anatomy, from bones to muscles, of figures in motion. Great for sculpture (which is what I use it for). I can't speak to whether it helps artists who draw or paint, because I don't do that, but I would think so.
