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.
This book is excellent for artists interested in the human body especially beginners.Good guidance on how to proceed .Tips on life drawing classes and what to do to build up to the finished drawing are fantastic .
I'm an illustrator, painter and a sculptor and without the shadow of a doubt this is the best anatomy book specifically written for artists that I have ever seen (I'm 37, so I have seen many and searched for a good book for years). The images are clear, superb and useful, the paper and binding are great and durable and the text is easy to read and follow. It has everything related to anatomy that I need as an artist. If you need anatomy reference and/or want to learn anatomy for artistic purposes I would definitely recommend this book. This is the book I had been searching for!
A autora descreve a anatomia com muita paixão usando elementos do nosso dia a dia pra nos ajudar a enxergar as formas em comum, este livro é um complemento de um anterior, que eu não conhecia, mas é enorme e contem desde a parte óssea,músculos, tendões, tecido adiposo até expressões faciais e o movimento, que é o foco do livro , que contem um absurdo de paginas e de uma leitura agradável e amigável para artistas .Sem falar que comprei a versão Kindle pra ler no tablet(a cores),o custo fica ainda mais baixo pra esse numero enorme de conteúdo e vale destacar a qualidade super alta das imagens, podemos dar zoom até enjoar,detalhe que na versao de amostra as figuras nao tem nem de longe a resolução da versao final, este livro pra mim foi um achado, um dos maiores custo beneficio que ja vi.
I started by reading Classic Human Anatomy by this author and found this book fairly similar BUT just as useful! This is definitely a complete guide to anatomy, and the end features sections on drawing motion, gesture drawing and constructing the body from shapes. It features a lot of useful information, and while it isn't an easy read, it will definitely help you improve your understanding of anatomy!
