Book Description

Sept. 1 2011 Art Models series

Whether trying a new technique, getting in some practice time, or working on a finished piece, this figure study enables artists to create their choice of model, pose, and view whenever and wherever they’d like. The latest addition to the series will help artists become proficient in incorporating chiaroscuro or light and dark lighting—a technique used by the great masters to produce drama and depth in their paintings—to define the human form. The book incorporates a new layout featuring two primary views per pose as well as a section of close-up faces, while additional expressions and body details such as the face, hands, and feet are shown in even greater detail on the DVD-ROM. With the book, artists can study 95 poses in strong unidirectional lighting and observe the female form through more than 200 printed photos. Varieties of body types—ranging from thin to plus-size—and ethnicities are included. Poses have been carefully chosen to illustrate important effects such as foreshortening and perspective changes. With this guide, artists can achieve longer drawing sessions than they could when drawing from a model directly. While viewing from many angles and at their own pace is often impossible for artists in a studio session, it becomes as easy as putting in the disc and opening any photo. A judicious amount of photo retouching is done—not to make the models more glamorous or plastic but to remove distractions that detract from the models’ essence. The PC/Mac-compatible DVD-ROM included in the book features more than 2,500 high-resolution JPEG photos providing a number of viewing options—on a computer screen, printed out, projected for a group, or via a high-definition television. Each angle of every pose may also be enlarged, enabling artists to zoom in on specific body parts to achieve a higher level of detail.

3.0 out of 5 stars Adult Contents May 17 2013
By Brian C
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Though this series is all about modelling, but it is strongly recommended for ADULT readers only due to the excessive nudity in the entire series. This is part of the series and I believe that the 8th volume has been released.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Artistic Poses Aug. 22 2011
By Joanna R. - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I love this edition of Art Models because it shows the detailed beauty of the human figure within the depths of shadow and light. This is perfect for reference and artist education. I have a few previous editions and love this the most; the others lack the shadow which I needed for study. Also, I do not think that taking the photos with a lot of shadow contrast, as in this book, takes away from other types of artists like graphic designers, cartoonists, etc. I think it adds to everyone's work and lacks NO detail. I can't wait for future editions using shadow and light as in this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Art Model 6 Sept. 26 2011
By Figurative artist - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Art Model 6 is the very best of the Art Model series. In the earlier books, the models are infused with light with very little shadows. There is a substantial amount of shadows on each figure in Art Model 6, and that is desirable. Shadows are wonderful and helps in expressing form. I think a bit more environmental elements would be good, for example; simple plant on a table, a book on a chair, model siting on various interesting chairs.

5.0 out of 5 stars DVD is excellent Jan. 5 2012
By Hunter Blackstone - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The included DVD is has numerous angles of the same pose. Outstanding. The book is ok, but the digital images are what make this product worth the money. Being able to open them up on a large monitor, versus a small page in a book.

Good product. The individual poses on their website are considerably more expensive than everything you get on the DVD. I own the previous book too, and its good as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent source Sept. 10 2011
By M. C. Lemay - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a great book to add to your image sources. I do comics and graphic stories, so the models images work well for me as a resource. I can use the pose as-is of modify as needed, then dress them to fit the story. It is a real win-win. The images are clear and the book includes a good variety of body types.
