    The Book of Bones

    I teach figure structure and artistic anatomy, I put on workshops worldwide.
    I am currently developing DVD's and a manual to demonstrate my system of figure drawing without a model.

    Although I will not be able to post the majority of the material here I will post some of my studies, theories and procedures relating to the human form.


    check demos on my site--tell me what you think!

    All of this stuff is great so far. The writing is kinda hard to read, but not impossible or anything.

    hey Mentler!

    your technical skill is great! :jump2:

    proportion wise, the foot works within the grid, but I personally don't like to use those grids, I find them too restrictive, its much more fun doing it freehand. Tho for learning the proportions, the grid is great!

    Grids are for kids.

    I agree with you 100% everybody wants to think there is a system to doing everything--- proportional system, are really just a security blanket to help you get over fear of the human form!!! By the way it has helped me really understand all the pieces better---my freehand feet have gotten much better after working out this grid system.
    By the way knowing this stuff is very helpful for constructing feet and all body parts in difficult positions from memory without reference or a model!!

    Lookin' For Links!!!!

    Thanx - for the positive momentum - I will put it to good use - the 3 views of the figure thing as daily deal is a great, great exercise - I am learning a great deal everyday - front view, side view, back view - usually also focus on certain things I am working on at the time.

    If you do not feel comfortable doing this exercise from memory try it with reference - the old masters are always a great resource.

    3 figures a day that's 1,095 figures a year - so you will be a lot better at figure drawing - I guarantee it - I have been doing it less than a month and it has really challenged me - and I have been drawing and painting for a while now.

    Looking to cross some good links for my school:
    So put me on yours - send me your stuff and I will have our webster put you on ours.
