3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By "artshogun" on July 9 2002
Format: Paperback
Nelson Shanks refers to the illustrations of this book as examples of simplifying the human form into patterns of light and dark. While the illustrations do accomplish this, the book is by no means a reference manual for rendering the human body. Also, most of the illustrations appear washed out in my copy of this book. If you are interested in beautiful examples of sensitive charcole renderings of the human figure, this book is outstanding. If you want a visual reference work on the under-structures of the human form, you can find better books than this one.
For anatomical reference, I highly recommend: "Bridgman's Complete Guide to Drawing From Life" by George B. Bridgman, and "The Human Figure: An Anatomy for Artists" by David K. Rubins.

Format: Paperback
To explain my rating of 3....I bought this book because I wanted to start from scratch in drawing the humna form. I can draw but have no figure training. This book is beautiful but a bit advanced. It may help me out when I get more experience. Buy this if you are an intermediate or above but not for starting out.

This book was my teacher's recommendation so I got it. But due to old English and poor quality of the print, I don't feel like reading, I had same feeling with Bridgman's books, but this one is a lot worse...

Format: Paperback
I belive artists are mostly visual people, the anatomical descriptions are very difficult to follow, unless perhaps you have been to medschool. Pluses are the drawings, the size, and the price

Format: Paperback
This is an elegant, eloquent little book. I'm a professional illustrator and sculptor, from a family of artists, and I find this small book stands out among the many references available.
It has a graciousness about it, not merely addressing anatomy, but giving a graceful translation of form.
I think it's good to have a number of references, and this is one I wouldn't do without!
