About the eBook

The human figure is the most rewarding but the most challenging subject to draw. 

In this book, award-winning drawing instructor Brent Eviston demystifies the process and teaches practical skills that anyone can learn. Starting with simple shapes, the reader will then learn how to accurately draw a figure in three dimensions and depict flesh, muscle, and bone as well as how to shade using dramatic light and shadow.

This practical guide will teach you the most accessible and effective methods for drawing the figure. Filled with beautiful and instructive drawings of every phase of the figure drawing process, this book builds upon Brent’s popular approach to teaching pioneered in his popular Art and Science of Drawing book and courses.
