This book was written to foster the creative spirit of the artist and to aid in the development and the continuation of realistic representational art. It is for all who love to draw the human form. It is for those who have never drawn a line, for those who are students who can draw to a certain degree, and for those professional artists who are proficient in drawing. This book shows step by step how to construct and draw the human figure and face as well along with all it’s features. It reveals in great detail the rarely perceived and little understood hidden underlying structure of the human form and how light and shade relates to it. All of this combines with the use of expressive line and the principles of "growth" and "action" produces drawing in its most complete sense. Once these ideas are assimilated and mastered the student is encouraged to draw from memory and imagination which thereby expresses his own creativity as an artist.
