Modelling And Sculpting The Human Figure (Dover...

Great post, thanks! I also want to mention Bruno Lucchesi's "Modeling the figure in clay". It helped me a lot learning digital sculpture. It's not Dover but a great process reference, even if the photos are a bit underexposed.@Craig Wilson: thanks for sharing the link on human types!!

I'm glad to see the Vanderpoel book on your list. I have been studying it for the last few months and loving every bit. He describes the planes of the human form more intimately than any other book I've read. It's as if he's your tour guide to the figure. Value wise you can't beat the Dover books, but the text in older books can be hard to digest unless you really buckle down with them. In general, I prefer art instruction books that present concepts in small doses and then build on them.Here are some recent favorites: -Drawn to Life by Walt Stanchfield-Composing Pictures by Donald W. Graham-Composition of Outdoor Painting by Edgar A. Payne-Color and Light: A Guide for the Realist Painter by James Gurney

Hello I am just beginning my journey in art, and was wondering if Bridgeman's guide is good for learning to draw the human figure. I have a fear that I will learn to draw what I know rather than what I see (e.g. drawing a hand that I've sketched a million times instead of the one I'm looking at at the moment). Thank you for your help. 041b061a72
