Ideal for those looking to develop a realistic drawing style, Lucy Swinburne demystifies the subject of drawing clothed figures through use of dozens of inspirational examples in a variety of drawing media. Step-by-step projects walk the reader through interesting and varied subjects, from all walks of life from ballerinas to buskers.
Drawing people can be intimidating unlike other subjects, even the tiniest error can give a staged or forced result. This book explains how to get your clothed figures looking alive, dynamic and characterful; and produce successful, dynamic results.
