Everyone understands that the internal structure of the body affects shape, posture and movement. Without an understanding of what is hidden from view, the artist cannot express the physical attributes and create a drawing that brings character truly to life. What makes this study of anatomy unique is that it focuses on visual knowledge, appealing to the methods through which artists really understand and appreciate information. There's no unnecessary medical jargon, only stunning yet accurate artwork, showing the artist what he needs to know in order to bring the human form to life.

I’ve been doing art for around 13 years so far and I’ve come to realize all the life skills art teaches that we often skip over. Art matters for everyone whether you think you need it or not. Art is what separates the most creative, unique, innovative, and productive people in the world from the average. I’ve always liked to say, “No house is home without art”. There is something about art that makes us human, and in a world where technology is automating a lot of things, art is becoming more and more valuable. Why does art matter though? After thinking about all the life skills art has taught me, I finally decided to just write a book about it. No matter what career you’re in, whether it be a doctor, a detective, an engineer, a teacher, a cook, (you name it), you NEED art! I want to help other people take a peek at life through the artist’s eye so they can experience the invaluable benefits of it by incorporating a form of art in their lives!

Artists of classical Greece and the Renaissance were highly aware of the complexity and great beauty of the human figure, and strove in their artwork to depict the ideal form. This book by an experienced twentieth-century art teacher covers two fundamentals of figure drawing that were equally important to masters of earlier eras — anatomy and perspective, subjects that seldom receive a thorough treatment within the same book. Carefully addressing both topics, the text suggests ways to convey the structure and functions of the human figure, covers elementary principles of drawing, and considers the use of light and shadow. Also discussed are aspects of measurement and the application of such simple forms as the cube, cylinder, and sphere in representing parts of the human body.
