Draw the Human Figure Anywhere, Anytime

For today's in-demand comic creators, animators, video game artists, concept designers, and more, being able to quickly draw the human figure in a variety of action-packed poses is a requirement. But what do you do if you don't have models or photographic reference readily available? In Freehand Figure Drawing for Illustrators , artist and instructor David H. Ross provides an alternative solution, showing you how to master freehand figure drawing without visual reference by using a modern twist on the classic technique of blocking out the human figure in mannequin form. Step-by-step lessons guide illustrators from basic poses (standing, running, jumping) to extreme motions (throwing punches, high kicking). For on-the-go artists, Freehand Figure Drawing for Illustrators allows you complete freedom to bring your figures to life at any time.

Excellent guide for drawing action poses. Start with basic transparent structural blocks. From importance of showing gravity, to natural movement and position of fingers and toes.

There is a growing trend towards the correct way to draw - by observation and doing - this develops your own style. So it is refreshing to see a book that isn't a paint by numbers, follow this formula narrative - but gives you a template upon which to do your own experimenting with drawing the human figure from your imagination.
