Figure It Out! Human Proportions || Christopher Hart
Posted by Henry in Author: Christopher Hart, Medium: Drawing, Publisher: sixth&spring, Series: Figure It Out!, Subject: Figure on Jul 2, 2014
Christopher Hart is a master of the simple explanation, with clear diagrams standing in for many paragraphs of exposition.
If you have trouble getting your people to look right and as if they could stand on their own without toppling over or their arms dragging on the ground, this is for you. Not everyone is exactly the same, but some measurements are so standard that they can be quantified, the eyes/nose/mouth being perhaps the best-known.
Christopher deals with all the body parts – as a whole, and separately: head, torso, arms, hands, legs, head and so on. He shows how they appear at rest and in a variety of poses and angles. Clear, annotated diagrams are the key to his exposition. This is a handy reference guide that’s easy to follow and where you can find what you want quickly.
