Présentation de l'éditeur

Many of us want to learn “how to draw.” But as artist Anthony Ryder explains, it’s much more important to learn what to draw. In other words, to observe and draw what we actually see, rather than what we think we see. When it comes to drawing the human figure, this means letting go of learned ideas and expectation of what the figure should look like. It means carefully observing the interplay of form and light, shape and line, that combine to create the actual appearance of human form. In The Artist’s Complete Guide to Figure Drawing, amateur and experienced artists alike are guided toward this new way of seeing and drawing the figure with a three-step drawing method.

The book’s progressive course starts with the block-in, an exercise in seeing and establishing the figure’s shape. It then build to the contour, a refined line drawing that represents the figure’s silhouette. The last step is tonal work on the inside of the contour, when light and shadow are shaped to create the illusion of form. Separate chapters explore topics critical to the method: gesture, which expresses a sense of living energy to the figure; light, which largely determines how we see the model; and form, which conveys the figure’s volume and mass. Examples, step-by-steps, and special “tips” offer helpful hints and practical guidance throughout.

Lavishly illustrated with the author’s stunning artwork, The Artist’s Complete Guide to Figure Drawing combines solid instruction with thoughtful meditations on the art of drawing, to both instruct and inspire artists of all levels.

Anthony RYDER est un grand dessinateur qui nous livre ici une méthode et plein de petits "trucs" pour savoir... dessiner. Malgré sa grande qualité il s'adresse plus à ceux qui ont déjà un certain niveau artistique, mais il reste un magnifique livre d'images pour tous. PATCHWORK.

HASH(0x918b436c) étoiles sur 5 Beautiful people, beautiful pictures. 28 janvier 2002
Par Peter Mackay - Publié sur
Format: Broché
If you are looking for an introductory book to ease you into being a whiz in life class, this is not it.
The techniques described are time-consuming and require a steady eye and hand - not something the average beginner has a lot of, with five or twenty minute poses and a wobbly easel.
But if you can get a model to hold the same pose for hours, possibly over several sessions, and you have some experience in figure drawing, then you may find this book extremely valuable.
Anthony Ryder talks the reader through the techniques, step by detailed step, aiming for understanding rather than slavish repetition. His method is logical and elegant, and if understood and practised, may result in some extremely good drawings.
Don't expect overnight success, however - there is a lot that is required before you can even start with this book. You'll need to know basic techniques with your media, be able to judge angles and proportions, have a good understanding of anatomy, and probably be able to handle a model in adopting the same pose session after session.
There is a good reason why most of the drawings in this book are of reclining models. Standing poses simply cannot be held for the amount of time it takes to achieve the same results. You'll need at least half an hour just to achieve the basic outline, probably more.
But having said all of the above, I must now state that this book is proof positive that Ryder's techniques work, are reproducible and can result in images of stunning beauty.
You still have to select a model and a pose, and this is another basic skill required, but Ryder is obviously a master at this, and the book is filled with drawings of the nude that are simply breathtaking in their beauty. Model, pose, arrangement and execution are all perfect. Classically elegant.
This is a book that rewards the eye as much as the mind, and it is a feast for both. If you aspire to greatness in your figure drawing, then buy this book, study it, and apply the lessons.
Recommended for artists of moderate experience. Highly recommended.

HASH(0x918b4774) étoiles sur 5 Breathes new life into drawing from life 23 juin 2000
Par Phat Kat - Publié sur
Format: Broché
If you're looking for anatomy lessons and short cuts (the eyes are one eye apart, the head five eyes wide sort of thing) then this is not the book for you. If you want to learn how to draw from life, to develop the basic techniques in tandem with a loving patience and relaxed attention, then this book will be hard to beat. Ryder demonstrates his method - starting with the "envelope" moving on to the "block in" then finished contour, and ending with the delicate shading that give life and mass to the drawings - with painstaking (but painless) care and wonderfully helpful illustrations from his own work.
I would strongly recommend this book with the warning that there are no shortcuts to drawing as brilliantly as Ryder - one thing that makes this book great is that Ryder doesn't pretend that there are any shortcuts. He admits up front that it takes hours of careful attention and work to get to the finished contour - which is the outline of the figure without the shading. But what he does give you is a very helpful technique. He helps with tips on judging distances, widths, proportions, angles; he helps with shading, seeing light and dark, building up tones.
Ryder is scrapping the scales of our eyes with this book, helping us to see - ultimately the most important aspect of drawing from life - and then showing you the best ways to get what you see on the page. It seems assumed that you will be working from a model or at the very least a superbly lit photograph. I think this book, coupled with Drawing on The Right Side of The Brain, would make an at-home-art-course that would be hard to beat.

HASH(0x918b47ec) étoiles sur 5 THE definitive work on quality figure drawing! 27 juin 2001
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Broché
As a practicing artist I have to say that this is the finest book of its kind I've come across. If you are serious about taking a traditional approach to figure drawing and want to produce artwork of the finest quality, this is the book to look at. If you just want to learn to do quick sketches then you might look elsewhere, since the approach discussed is time-consuming and painstaking. But it is THE way to go if you are serious about fine art. If I was only allowed to have one book on my shelf this would be it.

HASH(0x918b4780) étoiles sur 5 An Approach to Drawing 6 décembre 2001
Par SBell - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Although I wouldn't recommend Ryder's book to be the very first instruction book to use if you're just beginning to learn to draw, it definitely should be the second one. (If you're just starting to learn to draw realistically, I would recommend beginning with a book like Edwards' "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain," which, despite flaws, can give you faster results and motivate you to keep drawing.) Ryder doesn't say much more than the bare essentials about nuts-and-bolts technical matters (like what sort of pencils to use, etc.), but rather concentrates on describing a general approach to drawing- how to look at your model and transfer what you see to the paper. He does this with an economy of style that can get dense at times, but at the same time he avoids talking down to you or trying to make good drawing seem easier than it is. As he repeatedly emphasizes, it can take many hours of persistence and re-working to make a good drawing (or even a mediocre one if you're a beginner), and in fact it is that persistence- rather than some special ability- that makes it possible to draw well. Too many "teach yourself to draw" books aim you toward producing cartoonish or soft-focus drawings like you can buy from that guy with a portrait booth in the mall. The excellence of Ryder's drawings- which, as other reviewers have noted, are worth the price of the book by themselves- show that he probably has more important things to say and higher goals than most authors of art instruction books. Even if you don't understand everything right away, this books rewards re-reading as you progress and get a better hand-on sense the issues and techniques of drawing that Ryder talks about.

HASH(0x918b4cb4) étoiles sur 5 An in depth study of figure drawing 16 février 2003
Par Floyd E. Hosmer - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This book is loaded with information that goes beyond just drawing the human figure. As a trained Medical Illustrator I have had the unique priveldge of dissecting the human body and studying its contents and movements for over thirty years. I have yet to come across a collection of thoughts and instructions as complete as those contained between the covers of this book. Mr Ryder has a way of breaking down the approach to drawing the human figure that keeps the construction of the whole, or the parts, together at all times.
The book is sectioned into three areas of awareness, the Block-In, the Contour aand Drawing on the Inside. Each section builds on the other. The drawing examples are very well presented. I have found myself reading pages two and three times in order to make sure that I fully comprehend what is being described. Repeated reading has nothing to do with the way the material is presented; I just want to make sure I comprehend every word of what he is presenting. What he has to say is very important and worth taking the time to read.
I then actually put the techniques to work in my sketch book. The results are outstanding. Throughout my career I have wondered off into areas of artistic adventures that have altered my focal point as an artist. I have discovered that there are missing links in my training. Mr Ryders approach has helped restore that focus. I strongly feel that this book should on the shelf of any artist interested in drawing the figure or portraits.
As with any book, the words are only as good as the reader is willing to put them to use. Mr Ryder has done a wonderful job of organizing his thoughts and feelings about drawing the human figure. You will not be disappointed in adding this book to your collection.
