DescriptionFigure drawing is the most essential - and the most difficult - of all the skills for the artist to learn. In this manual Burne Hogarth introduces his own system of figure drawing, which should make it possible to visualize and accurately render the forms of the human body from every conceivable point of view. First Hogarth describes the forms of the human figure. Then he demonstrates his "deep space" notion, a systematic sketching order that is the key to drawing the figure with believable interconnection of forms and control of foreshortening. By mastering this remarkable system, artists should be able to draw an amazing variety of poses, actions and gestures without a model, while maintaining the correct relationship between forms.

Reviews for Dynamic Figure Drawing
less anatomically correct than i would have liked
this is an excellent reference for those who wish to take up figure drawing.
I personally found most of the illustrations however lapsed into the old Greek style of figure portrayal. where, for example, the lower abs hold more fat than is normal. also the number of figures is limited to a single male form and touches very briefly on the female form.
despite its limitations, this is an excellent book, and well worth a read. i found it to be a valuable source of shading reference as well. by david craven
