This second book in the Pocket Art series (following Portraits) is packed with expert technical guidance on drawing realistic figures and stunning, inspirational examples.

London-based artist Joanna Henly (a.k.a. Miss Led) guides you through every aspect of figure drawing with a lively, graphic approach to instruction-demystifying the complexities of body proportions and capturing gestures with step-by-step illustrations and expert tips.

Following an introduction-including a look at career directions for figure artists and an overview of tools, materials, and techniques-your lessons begin with the basics of accurately rendering body proportions, body types, and body parts. After you gain some experience drawing basic figures, you'll move on to adding expression-a person's style and personality, proclamation and identity-to your work. Then you'll finish up by heading out and about, practicing street sketching and movement. A gallery of drawings in the back provides a quick reference for inspiration and to reinforce what you've learned.

The exercises demonstrate and reinforce the skills as you go, while the incredible artwork inspires and motivates. With its compact size and sturdy flexi binding, you can carry this invaluable resource everywhere you go-in your backpack, bag, or pocket.
