Drawing the Human Figure
by Dallas Good
About the Book
This book contains many of my drawings that I created while at figure drawing workshops. I have dominantly worked in one style, to provide a sense of consistency. There are many different poses and I worked from different models.
The text addresses many of the aspects of drawing the figure with a leaning towards the thinking that helps you invent figure drawing.
Some of the topics that we touch on are:
Volume, Poses, Perspective, Character, Anatomy, Artistic Style, Shorthand, Pose Length, Line Economy, How to use, Computers, Layers, Approach, Goals, Props, Teaching, Proportion, Mental Models, Hands, Anatomy Demos, Online Classes, Figure Drawing Classes
This book is not a book for beginners, as I do not discuss the "basics of drawing". But as you can see from the list above, I do discuss many aspects of drawing, and on that level, it may inform the beginner.
This book is more about "economical anatomy". It is more of an intermediate to advanced conversation. And it also addresses style.
The discerning reader will be able to learn from my shorthand choices and my methods of interlocking the volumes.
