In this highly praised guidebook, versatile and influential artist/teacher Joseph Sheppard introduces an innovative approach to drawing the human form. Beginning by reviewing the basics of anatomy, he makes his principal focus the specifics of surface anatomy. Rather than depicting in detail the muscles and bones that lie beneath the skin, as do most books on artistic anatomy, this book concentrates on how the position and movement of muscles and bones affect the surface forms on live models. The effects are masterfully demonstrated in over 170 of Joseph Sheppard's own drawings of many different live models in front, back and side views, and in various standing, sitting, kneeling, crouching, reclining, and twisting poses. Each drawing is accompanied by two diagrams, one for bones and one for muscles, which specifically show how surface forms are created by the definitive shapes beneath the skin. Paperback, 144 pages.
