Drawing the human body is a creative process, but one which relies on an accurate rendition of the form. This practical book explains anatomy for the artist. It outlines the skeletal system and how this provides the first lines of construction, and then introduces the superficial muscular system. With this understanding, an artist is empowered with a rigid structure to aid drawing proportions and the muscle shapes to provide the form. In doing so, Practical Anatomy for Artists provides a technical foundation that will support the artist's intuitive skills.
