Many of us want to learn “how to draw.” But as artist Anthony Ryder explains, it’s much more important to learn what to draw. In other words, to observe and draw what we actually see, rather than what we think we see. When it comes to drawing the human figure, this means letting go of learned ideas and expectation of what the figure should look like. It means carefully observing the interplay of form and light, shape and line, that combine to create the actual appearance of human form. In The Artist’s Complete Guide to Figure Drawing, amateur and experienced artists alike are guided toward this new way of seeing and drawing the figure with a three-step drawing method. The book’s progressive course starts with the block-in, an exercise in seeing and establishing the figure’s shape. It then build to the contour, a refined line drawing that represents the figure’s silhouette. The last step is tonal work on the inside of the contour, when light and shadow are shaped to create the illusion of form. Separate chapters explore topics critical to the method: gesture, which expresses a sense of living energy to the figure; light, which largely determines how we see the model; and form, which conveys the figure’s volume and mass. Examples, step-by-steps, and special “tips” offer helpful hints and practical guidance throughout. Lavishly illustrated with the author’s stunning artwork, The Artist’s Complete Guide to Figure Drawing combines solid instruction with thoughtful meditations on the art of drawing, to both instruct and inspire artists of all levels.

Leading painter John Raynes' new book brings clarity to the anatomy of the human body in relation to the way we draw and paint it. He brings his hallmark technical detail and accessibility to the subject of which he is a leading exponent. An essential book for reference and inspiration, the book provides insight into drawing real people, not just the anatomically 'correct' shapes. All shapes and sizes are covered, from overweight and underweight to heavily pregnant. It shows how an understanding of anatomical form is vital to drawing all types of figures. John also encourages you to be more creative in your figure work. The comprehensive companion is illustrated with over 200 illustrations, many step-by-step, and is divided into four sections : 1. Anatomy: skeleton and muscles. Anatomical drawings to fully explain the body's structure 2. Living Anatomy: surface form. How to use anatomical information to create surface form drawings 3. Figure Drawing: the key aspects. Covers shape, weight, balance and dynamics, structure, light and shade, movement (all with step by steps) 4. Drawing Real People. Covers clothing, character and idiosyncratic shape (all with step by steps) 5. Creativity with the Human Form. Playing with light and shade and creative composition
