How to Draw Awesome Figures Reviews
I've tried a couple of different books before to improve upon my drawing skills before with little success, but not being one to give up I figured it was worth it to give this book a shot. I can in all honestly say that I am seriously impressed by the amount of valuable information in this book! As I said, my drawing skills were a bit lacking to put it mildly, yet this book has really helped me to understand why it was that I struggled so much when it came to drawing the human figure. My proportions would always be off, but I couldn't seem to get why that was the case or what I needed to do to fix it. Neil's ability to deliver simple to understand and concise directions in combination with the step by step pictures used to illustrates his point made all the difference. I found that by explaining the necessary aspects of anatomy, instead of trying to explain kit in its entirety, relieved a lot of the anxiety and confusion. To put it quite simply: It made sense. It really helped me to change the way I approached drawing the human figure and has given me a new and strong foundation that had been lacking. While I'm still moving through the book, I have made serious improvements in my work and have a new found confidence that I din't have in my work. I would definitely recommend this book to those who are looking for a concise guide that is simple to follow and anyone wanting to improve upon their skills.
Well, my little backstory goes like this: I took art classes in college, and had a professor who was featured in art-related magazines…how is that for excellent? Well, Neil Fontaine is no slouch himself, and he gets right on the job of guiding budding artists through the step by step process of what it means to be able to draw human figures with accurate proportions. Yes, it is only too true that if you plan on creating artwork for graphic novels, animation, anime, what have you…your work may lose their intended effect without mastery of the human form in all its nuances of movement, muscularity, and action.
Recently I've been really burned out at work and decided to foster a little creativity to help ease it a little bit. I was always a fan of making sketches back from when I took art in high school but always had difficulty drawing figures of martial artists. I thought I'd search on amazon for a few drawing tutorial books and came across this title.
i'm really enjoying Neil W's book. I bought it to help me learn how to create characters for children's illustrations and thus far i can say though i'm only a third through the book i'm already thinking about signing up for his Udemy class. His writing style, emphasis on technique, the practice exercises are so straight forward and to the point that you'll start to pick up on things very quickly.i've tried other books in the past but I think Neil's easy going style really helps to crystallize the material . It's a great find and I'll definitely purchase his course once I'm done. Thanks for the labor of love
“How to Draw Awesome Figures” is required reading (and exercise!) for anybody who wants to draw comic figures in a way that is both fantastic and accurate, anatomically-speaking. Neil Fontaine offers a wealth of tips and techniques to improve your drawing skills, and this is a book that can help drawers from beginners to advanced. The book will help you learn how to properly proportion your figure, put them in poses, and make everything look great. Fontaine’s teaching style within the book is simple, clear, and concise, and I was able to pick up on some terrific techniques by following along with this book.
I've been using this book for about two weeks and I am pleased with how it it trains me. It is giving me a good foundation in human proportions. After a bit of practice, I can see progress in my drawings. With a bit more practice if these fundamentals, I can really see myself getting much better at creating interesting drawings of people in motion.
