Anyone Can Draw the Human Body
With the help of the How to Draw: FIGURES Sketchbook from Render Demo, anyone can own this studio in a book. Whether you’re an adult or a child who simply wants to learn to draw, or an art student, this sketchbook is for you. The book is created to appeal to a wide range of skill levels, and although the human body is complex, the sketchbook breaks it down into easily-digestible parts.
The bonus in this book is that you’ll learn the basics of not only drawing figures but sketching as well.
Artists draw with the phase-out method. This means you’re given extensive guidelines to begin, and gradually they are reduced so you no longer depend on them. What a great way to learn to draw the human form.
