Figure Drawing Books: Figure Drawing Design and Invention
Up until now, I’ve been reviewing books that where written quite a ways back. Mostly because books written around the 40s and 50s, when illustration was king, are some of the best academic drawing books to get.
However, things are changing. Especially since concept art, animation and other drawing disciplines have made more academic art a viable income source.
This means that academic draftsmanship knowledge has become important again. New books are being written about it in a more contemporary way.
In this video, I talk about one of two contemporary figure drawing books I highly recommend.
