Arguably the most challenging of subjects for the artist, the human figure also offers opportunities for works of incredible beauty and complexity. In this book, one of today's leading figurative artists shares techniques and approaches for drawing the human form. With a reverent grounding in the methods of the Old Masters and keen perspective developed over Jon DeMartin's 20+ years of making and teaching art, this comprehensive workshop focuses on the power of line and how it can be used to achieve a convincing sense of dimension and life.

Beautifully illustrated with classical drawings as well as step-by-step progressions, these lessons explore the enlightening practice of copying, how to use proportion and measurement wisely, drawing the head and its features, rendering the figure in motion, short-pose exercises, and much, much more. Throughout, artists will master techniques for achieving a compelling "living force" in their drawings, while building a base of understanding that will ultimately make the process more intuitive and enjoyable.

This book gives some good tips on how to draw things, but if you're a beginner, steer clear! This book kind of teaches you how to do things assuming you already know the basics of actually drawing something. This means that if you are literally just starting out in the drawing world and have never drawn in your entire life or know anything about those special little drawing utensils, you will find a struggle in completing the tasks assigned in the book (drawing hands, faces, etc.). However, if you have been drawing for a while and understand what and how to use certain utensils (or if you're simply a certified doodler who wants to improve their skills), you will find this book challenging yet helpful, like any other learning experience. Overall, the instructions in this book are clear, detailed and easy to follow, so if you feel you have what it takes to draw Atelier, definitely pick this up! :D
