Figure It Out! Drawing Essential Poses

The Beginner's Guide to the Natural-Looking Figure

by Christopher Hart, Christopher Hart
Bestselling how-to-draw author Christopher Hart helps artists fine-tune their skills with the fundamentals of drawing natural-looking figures. Eschewing the esoteric “art poses” and wooden mannequins commonly found in art books, he portrays everyday, real-life gestures on human-looking foundation figures: standing, sitting, kneeling, and reclining, with arms folded, ankles crossed, hands on hips, and more, all shown from various angles. Hart also explores deeper concepts such as perspective, illusion of depth, casting shadows, and foreshortening, and provides step-by-step tutorials that take artists through complete, naturally posed figure drawings from start to finish.

Christopher Hart is the world’s bestselling author of how-to-draw books, with more than six million copies sold worldwide. His titles frequently appear on the Bookscan Top 50 Art list. They also have a huge international audience, having been translated into more than 20 languages. In his more than 50 titles, Hart offers artists accessible, generously illustrated, and clearly written step-by-step instruction on a wide variety of how-to-draw subjects, including manga, human anatomy, cartooning, comics, and animals.
