The Master Guide to Drawing Anime: Expressions & Poses
Figure Drawing Essentials for the Aspiring Artist
By Christopher Hart (Author)
In this new title, Christopher Hart combines two subjects he is well known for—figure drawing and anime. The classic concepts of figure drawing are a perfect place to start for the aspiring anime artist. This book shows readers how to apply basic figure-drawing principles to the anime style that fans love. Chris covers figure-drawing fundamentals—such as proportions, posture, and poses—along with the finishing touches that infuse characters with personality. For example, a simple hand gesture can define an entire scene! This book teaches readers how to draw hands and gestures, and also faces, contours, poses, clothing, scenes, and more. Each lesson offers tips and tricks that will demystify the drawing process, giving artists a solid figure-drawing foundation that they can apply to the anime style and beyond.
