Simplified Anatomy for the Comic Book Artist

The subtitle of this book says it all: How to Draw the New Streamlined Look of Action-Adventure. The superhero of how-to-draw books, Christopher Hart, presents an amazing new method for quickly and easily drawing modern comics heroes and heroines.

These characters tend to be a bit edgier than the superheroes of the past, with a hint of anime/cartoon design to them. Following Hart's clear, step-by-step illustrations and text, readers learn the secrets of successfully drawing modern, simplified, streamlined characters.

Topics covered in Simplified Anatomy for the Comic Book Artist include how to draw streamlined figures in poses, body types, muscles, the mechanics of facial expression, how to know which muscles to eliminate in a simplified drawing, grouping muscles, muscle contours versus bone contours, muscles in classic comic book poses such as flying and punching, and much more. The book also contains 300 black-and-white illustrations and 50 color illustrations.

Author — Christopher Hart.
