A lively, colorful figure drawing instruction book that encourages aspiring illustrators to work in ink and watercolor to create quick, confident renderings of diverse, contemporary people. While today's illustrators work primarily in ink and watercolor, figure drawing instruction still tends to emphasize work in pencil. Commercial illustrator Kagan McLeod offers an approach to figure and portrait drawing more in keeping with today's preferred tools and techniques, one that focuses on cultivating spontaneity, energy, and confidence by providing exercises for brush work in ink and watercolor. By breaking figure and portrait drawing into the three major aspects of line, tone, and color and recommending time limits for each exercise, McLeod encourages working fast and fearless, rather than worrying about getting your figures just right. Filled with numerous illustrative examples of diverse, modern people, Draw People Every Day reflects practical, applicable techniques to get you drawing the people you see in the world around you with speed and proficiency.

Packed with helpful photographs, hundreds of techniques, and loads of expert instruction, The Complete Book of Poses for Artists is the perfect resource for artists of all skill levels. The human figure is one of the most difficult subjects to capture in drawing. The Complete Book of Poses for Artists combines photographs and illustrations that demonstrate how to accurately render the human form in hundreds of realistic poses using a variety of drawing media, including graphite pencil, charcoal, and pastel. The book guides artists through the process of drawing the human figure as it pertains to anatomy, proportions, volume, mass, gesture, movement, and expression. From there, the book reveals how these characteristics come together using light, shape, line, and form to accurately depict the human figure in a variety of everyday poses, including standing, sitting, reclining, and action. Each section features color photographs of people in several "core" poses (e.g., sitting, reclining, and action), as well as multiple variations of those poses. Step-by-step artist illustrations demonstrate how to render the core pose, whereas illustrations and professional tips demonstrate how to turn the core pose into a new variation. In addition, step-by-step drawing instructions and techniques demonstrate how to capture realistic poses as they differ from one person to the next across a range of human characteristics, such as age (child, teen, adult, senior citizen); body type (ectomorph, mesomorph, endomorph); gender; and activity (e.g., athlete, dancer, etc.). Packed with helpful photographs, hundreds of techniques, and loads of expert instruction, The Complete Book of Poses for Artists is the perfect resource for artists of all skill levels-and one that will be referred to over and over again.
