2.0 out of 5 stars A Lack of Strength, Jan. 14 2002
This review is from: Anatomy For The Artist (Hardcover)
I am very displeased with this book. From the reviews and other marketing ploys it seemed quite informative, so congratulations on selling a less than average product. I am a figure painter and drawer and I dread to see the work produced by artists utilizing this book. It did not pay enough attention to muscular structure, function, or ability. It would show a sketch of one view of the muscles in relax. A page per muscle would prove more substantial, to know how each muscle moved, what it did, where it attatched. And of all things, this is a superficial pictoral of societal perfection. Yes i agree that perfect human form is the best for muscular studies in shape and form and what not, but there was not one figure over the age of 35 showing any age changes, nor any obese figures to show how form can be concieled yet still percieved if understood. I simply think this book is a marketing extravaganza, seemingly indepth to the laymen yet lacking the true nature of what an artist should know and push.
