Since this is figreu drawing thread, I though it would the right place to post this. My figure drawing teacher, Henry Yan, just finished his book on figure drawing. It has instructions from doing short all the way to long poses. Other then the beautiful drawings, there are also many demos on different approaches. And yes, it is in English.(not easy to find for a book about artist from China) Anyway, you can check out his work at http://www.henryyanart.com/
Here are some of the drawing from his website.
