READING: How often does an aspiring artist read a book or take a class on drawing the human body, only to end up with page after page of stiff lifeless marks rather than the well-conceived figure the course promised? Though there are many books on drawing the human figure, none teach how to draw a figure from the first few marks of the quick sketch to the last virtuosic stroke of the finished masterpiece, let alone through a convincing, easy-to-understand method. That changes now. In Figure Drawing for Artists: Making Every Mark Count, award-winning fine artist Steve Huston shows beginners and pros alike the two foundational concepts behind the greatest masterpieces in art and how to use them as the basis for their own success. Embark on a drawing journey and discover how these twin pillars of support are behind everything from the Venus De Milo to Michelangelo's Sibyl to George Bellow's Stag at Sharkey's, how they're the fundamental tools for animation studios around the world, and how the best comic book artists from the beginnings of the art form until now use them whether they know it or not. Figure Drawing for Artists: Making Every Mark Count sketches out the same two-step method taught to the artists of DreamWorks, Warner Brothers, and Disney Animation, so pick up a pencil and get drawing.

READING: Simple methods teach how to draw figures. When we try to draw a person, we are quickly confronted with various challenges. The proportions need to be correct, the attitude must be clear and vivid, the face should show resemblance and also be expressive. Such a task takes courage. Yet a little practice and training quickly lead to the ability to draw figures in a wide variety of styles. A figure in a particular posture can be assembled with a few key characteristic strokes. At the center of this collection is not the perfect figure, but the joy of drawing, and how, with simple methods, drawing people is possible: by reducing and reducing to a few lines, using clear contours and simple surfaces, the human figure emerges, constructed and elaborated.

READING: Many of us want to learn “how to draw.” But as artist Anthony Ryder explains, it’s much more important to learn what to draw. In other words, to observe and draw what we actually see, rather than what we think we see. When it comes to drawing the human figure, this means letting go of learned ideas and expectation of what the figure should look like. It means carefully observing the interplay of form and light, shape and line, that combine to create the actual appearance of human form. In The Artist’s Complete Guide to Figure Drawing, amateur and experienced artists alike are guided toward this new way of seeing and drawing the figure with a three-step drawing method. The book’s progressive course starts with the block-in, an exercise in seeing and establishing the figure’s shape. It then build to the contour, a refined line drawing that represents the figure’s silhouette. The last step is tonal work on the inside of the contour, when light and shadow are shaped to create the illusion of form. Separate chapters explore topics critical to the method: gesture, which expresses a sense of living energy to the figure; light, which largely determines how we see the model; and form, which conveys the figure’s volume and mass. Examples, step-by-steps, and special “tips” offer helpful hints and practical guidance throughout. Lavishly illustrated with the author’s stunning artwork, The Artist’s Complete Guide to Figure Drawing combines solid instruction with thoughtful meditations on the art of drawing, to both instruct and inspire artists of all levels.

READING: Een aanrader!' - Dick Swaab 'Leest als een roman.' - Robert Hofstra, hoogleraar humane genetica Stress is zonder twijfel een van de meest misbruikte begrippen van deze tijd. Maar wat ís stress eigenlijk? Bijna 14 miljard jaar na de oerknal, 200.000 jaar nadat homo sapiens zijn intrede deed en twee eeuwen na de Industriële Revolutie is de wereld in steeds hoger tempo steeds complexer aan het worden. Ons stress-systeem, grotendeels gevormd in een periode waarin nog niet eens leven op het land bestond, is helemaal niet toegerust om de problemen van deze tijd het hoofd te bieden. Het is dan ook geen toeval dat het aantal gevallen van slapeloosheid, depressie en burnout een alarmerende groei laat zien. In dit boek pleiten Hoogendijk en De Rek voor een radicaal andere visie op stressgerelateerde aandoeningen. Op heldere en overtuigende wijze leggen zij uit hoe het komt dat wij zoveel moeite hebben alle veranderingen bij te houden. Het is tijd onze opgefokte verwachtingen onder de loep te nemen. Net als onze ongezonde relatie met de farmaceutische industrie.

READING: Written by a well-known artist and expert instructor, The Figurative Artist's Handbookoffers a comprehensive, contemporary approach to the subject that instructs artists on the foundation basics and advanced techniques they need for successful figure drawing and painting. In addition to Zeller's stunning drawings and paintings, the work of over 50 of today's top practicing artists is included, so that the book will do double-duty as a hard-working how-to book and a visual treasure trove of some of the finest figurative art being created today. A must-have reference book for today's figurative artists and art students. This handbook combines three oschools of thoughto regarding figure drawing that are, at least on the surface, at odds with each other. But with his vast teaching experience, Zeller has seen that on a deeper level they are very compatible. Such a synthesis leads to a more complete understanding of the figure. Although this comprehensive approach is reflected in contemporary art and art education, no book has ever combined all three before. Gestural-The dynamic, gestural, rhythmic understanding of the figure as practiced by the great Mannerists of the Renaissance. This philosophy emphasizes life and rhythm in the human form. Rooted in the 16th and 17th centuries. Structural-A solid architectural understanding of the structure and anatomy of the body as the basis for building solid figure drawings. Rooted in the 20th and 21st centuries. Atelier Method-A beautiful, careful, detailed understanding of surface morphology of the figure. Smooth surface rendering. Very sensual. Rooted in the 18th and 19th centuries.
