“I can render anything. I can make anything look like a photograph, but I found that to be a dead end. I have been surprised to find a feeling of connection with the Old Masters through animation,” writes artist Patricia Hannaway in the eBook’s introduction. She explains how she began to notice the prominent action line in drawings by Michelangelo and Rubens.

This new eBook addresses many of the pitfalls of figure drawing and gesture drawing and recommends how they can be corrected to feel alive, in many cases more so alive than correct. The Artist Daily Human Figure Drawing Tutorial: 13 Life Drawing Techniques eBook explains why misrepresentations can happen in figure drawing and how an artist can compensate for them.

The eBook also gives recommendations and advice on how to draw a human keeping the pen or pencil on the surface while drawing from the shoulder and not the hand. She suggests drawing the shape of the movement, not the thing, when body drawing or drawing anatomy. This eBook is like a figure drawing tutorial or a life drawing class, helping readers to learn how to draw a human with uncanny accuracy and amazing realism. The eBook offers 13 concrete tips such as:

•   how figure drawing poses can take the action line to the extreme
•   when drawing anatomy may involve sacrificing anatomical correctness
•   how gesture drawing is drawing to understand the essence of the subject
•   how life drawing is observing your environment, physics and humanity
•   and much more.

Also included in the book is a sketch demonstration of how to take the idea of action and communicate it via the action line, relating the idea, instead of the pieces.
