Book Description
FIGURE DRAWING FOR FASHION DESIGN offers a concise, topic by topic guide to acquiring and perfecting these skills, concentrating on the female form. The coverage provided means that this book is ideal both for those who want to apply themselves professionally to fashion design, and for all enthusiasts of drawing the human body. Fashion plates are the primary means of visualizing ideas and concepts in costume and fashion design. To give an accurate impression of what is in a designer’s mind it is vital to have complete mastery of the rules of figure drawing. Here, realism and anatomical precision are the chief values, whereas for costume and fashion, stylization and exaggeration are ways of adding individuality and verve to a plate, and of focusing attention on specific elements.

Drawing Cutting Edge Anatomy: The Ultimate Reference for Comic Book Artists
Christopher Hart
0823023982
October 2004
Paperback
·
 
From School Library Journal
Adult/High School–While it won't replace a more traditional study of anatomy, this book covers the basics in good detail, always relating the discussion of bones and muscle groups to the exaggerated physiology found in comic books. The illustrations are lavish, often in full color, with black and white used for the drawings where color would obscure the lesson being imparted. A mixture of comic-book-proportioned anatomical drawings and finished art helps to show the transition between fact and presentation, with the text highlighting what has been emphasized as well as what has been left out to get the proper look. The last part of the book includes a discussion of how the comic-book business works and several interviews with artists, all of which drift from the topic of anatomy somewhat but is still...

Human Anatomy Made Amazingly Easy
Christopher Hart
0823024970
September 1, 2000
Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
Human anatomy is perhaps the most difficult of forms for the beginning artist to capture. Hart simplifies the process in an accessible manual that concentrates on line and forgoes the complexity of color. The book suffers, however, from the nature of Hart's past work. He is the author of seven books on cartoons and animation, and his subjects seem ready to don superhero costumes and save the universe. Sidaway's guide to the female nude is much more successful. He takes the reader from simple charcoal drawings to sophisticated watercolors in a dozen projects. Working from photos, the beginner can advance through the challenges of the three classic poses: seated, reclining, and standing. This is a fine addition to the genre, which already includes good sources like Giovanni Civardi's trilogy, Drawing Human Anatomy,...
