    "Extremely Useful" - Julie, 3 December 2020
    " As someone who struggled quite a lot in art before to finally accept that I needed to know the fundamentals to be good at drawing, this book saved my career. It is well explained, and with training on the side, is a really wonderful way to understand the core of drawing and painting ! I recommand this book to everyone I know who wants to learn the fundamentals all the time. (In general, I recommand highly every book on 3DTotal, this site is one of the best thing I encounter in my art journey) The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is because, as english isn't my mother tong, some part needed quite an amount of translation because of the advanced vocabulary - but appart from that it's really great!

    "Great book but it does look a bit different to the preview" - Mikhail, 14 December 2020

I'm also not that sure about the value of the "texture" which looks as wet paint spots on half of the pages, which mostly doesn't affect the works except for a couple of pages. Still a good book of course, with plenty of great works "

    " This book has really amazing high quality photos side by side with anatomical drawings, contour lines, and planar forms overlaid on top of them.

There are good comparisons of male and female skeletons, joint mechanics, and some overweight and age references as well. With the bulk of the book showing both male and female figure. Warning though the book is 100% nude photos, so if that kind of thing bothers you or your giving it as a gift make sure their mature enough to deal with the subject matter. I'd recommended this book to any artists working with the human figure in any medium both traditional and digital. "
