Drawing the male nude

£14.99

Product description

This book is in good condition throughout, however some of the text on the first three pages has been highlighted.


Glance through any collection of masterpieces and you'll discover that artists of every period have devoted much time and talent to portraying the human form. The male nude, in particular is one of the most familiar images in art but one of the more challenging to draw. In this comprehensive manual, Italian artist Giovanni Civardi displays a thorough appreciation of the male form, and explains the most important aspects of figure drawing through a series of beautiful drawings executed in a classic, timeless style. The book begins with a brief introduction that offers advice on the correct approach to figure drawing, provides information on human anatomy and demonstrates how to create different effects using a range of techniques. Hundreds of line drawings show the male form in a range of positions and the accompanying text explains clearly and concisely the major features of each set of drawings.
