This comprehensive selection from the works of Italian artist Giovanni Civardi covers every aspect of figure drawing from basic techniques to heads, hands, feet and clothing.

Giovanni is an accomplished demonstrator and, above all, explainer. His books are visually led and the text explains what you should be looking for, rather than leaving you grumbling, “just show me”.

Using line, tone and hatching, Giovanni creates shapes, perspective and proportion, giving results that look and feel entirely natural. His poses all look relaxed, rather than strained and he uses an explanation of basic anatomy as well as block diagrams to show how they're built up. Technical aspects such as balance and equilibrium, perspective and foreshortening are dealt with summarily but clearly, leaving you enlightened, but free to concentrate on the more creative aspects of your work.

A complete set of Giovanni's books would be a desirable thing to have, but this compilation provides an excellent introduction to drawing the human figure at a thoroughly affordable price.
