View Full Version : What are Bridgeman Studies?

Ive been looking at sketchbooks and noticing people keep mentionning Bridgeman which seems to be an anatomy artist of some kind.
Where can I found this reference material because I cant take clear pictures of my hands :P

I typed the name Bridgman into the search on Amazon.com and it came back with a list of his books.

That'd be George Bridgman and the book you'd probably want is Bridgman's Complete Guide to Drawing From Life. I think that book is also split into smaller volumes, focusing on heads, hands, etc.
He tackles anatomy from a very structural / mechanical standpoint.. a lot of the figures he draws look like they were carved from big chunks of wood. It's a really good book for learning the mechanics of the human body, but it's probably best to study it alongside another anatomy book IMO... the Bridgman stuff can be confusing on it's own.
