Reseña del editor
This innovative approach focuses upon the specifics of surface anatomy. 177 of Sheppard's drawings show many different live models in front, back, and side views, and in various standing, sitting, kneeling, crouching, reclining, and twisting poses. Each drawing is accompanied by two diagrams, one for bones, one for muscles.
"Joseph Sheppard has been favorably compared to practically every Renaissance master
he is without peer among modern realists for his ability to impart a warm verisimilitude to the figure."Artspeak magazine.
In this highly praised guidebook, Joseph Sheppard, a versatile and influential artist and teacher who is widely recognized as a master of figure drawing, introduces an innovative approach to drawing the human form. Beginning by reviewing the basics of anatomy, he makes his principal focus the specifics of surface anatomy.
Rather than depicting in detail the muscles and bone that lie beneath the skin, as do most books on artistic anatomy, this book concentrates on how the position and movement of muscles and bones affect the surface forms of live models. The effects are masterfully demonstrated in over 170 of Joseph Sheppard's own drawings of many different live models in front, back, and side views, and in various standing, sitting, kneeling, crouching, reclining, and twisting poses.
Each drawing is accompanied by two diagrams, one for bones, one for muscles, which specifically show how surface forms are created by the definitive shapes beneath the skin. The superb quality of Joseph Sheppard's drawings, the wide range of poses he illustrates, and the effectiveness of his approach in this booknow in its first paperback editionwill help artists at all levels improve and refine their skills in drawing the living figure.

This book has great drawings of nude figures, three per page of same figure, one showing the muscle, another skeleton and a finally finished figure. All we need to know before drawing a nude on one page. Does not get better than that. Fantastic book to learn from. I also find the finished figures drawings in this book great to use to practice gesture drawings. I recommend this book to anyone who knows what it takes to become and artists of nude figures and is willing to work for it. I love this book and I am very happy with my new purchase. I bought a new copy for $8.98 via Amazon from Alpine Butterfly. It came fast and it was very well packed.
The book includes about seventy well-drawn male and female nude drawings, grouped by type of pose (standing, crouching, twisting, etc.). Each of the seventy poses is drawn three times --
(1) as an annotated finished drawing,
(2) as an annotated (identically sized) skeleton in the same pose, and
(3) as an annotated (identically sized) muscle diagram in the same pose.
The anatomy is at a level of detail designed for the figure-drawing artist, not for the medical illustrator. As such, only those muscles and bones that are significant to a particular pose are labeled, and are described with simplified nomenclature.
I remember complaining to my instructor that I could discern the rib cage in our male model, but not in this rounded-back posed female model. This book is the ideal reference for seeing the support infrastructure in such situations.
Although there are many approaches to figure drawing, understanding the effects that underlying anatomical infrastructure have on surface anatomy is essential to realistic drawing. In addition to this book, you should also have other books in your figure drawing library, that cover croquis, circles & guidelines, tonal masses, planes, gestures, cylinders, lighting, proportions, contours, and other techniques. But Joseph Sheppard's "Drawing the Living Figure" will be your primary anatomical reference.
Most professional artists recommend Bridgeman's works. I don't doubt the usefulness of Bridgeman to a true working professional, but for me, and maybe other amateurs, the concepts in Bridgeman never seem to reveal themselves. Sheppard will be useful the first time you open the book and will certainly clear much of the confusion in figure drawing.
This book is for you. It's not an "all you can do with a pencil guide or anything of that nature." Instead it focuses on anatomy with bone, muscle, and skin structure. It gives you three steps for every drawing, starting with the skeleton and let me tell you I've been drawing skulls repeatedly to gain an understanding of the human skull and how it works. It's splendid, if you're wanting to splurge into the human anatomy and don't have deep pockets, this is a great buy. Buy it if you need to study the human skull, bones in general, or practice life drawing. Every drawing has a completed and shaded model to boot. I will purchase more anatomy books for additional knowledge but this is a great buy for the aspiring artist.
