Drawing the Human Head represents a landmark in art instruction books. A comprehensive work on the human head, this outstanding handbook is so unique in concept and approach that no artist's library will be complete without it.
In a dramatic series of 300 extraordinary drawings and diagrams, Burne Hogarth masterfully analyzes the basic structure, proportions, and anatomy of the human head. He carefully delineates the precise form and musculature of every facial feature; he outlines wrinkle patterns and demonstrates how to draw the human head from every angle. Step-by-step, he clearly explains how to age the face year by year, from birth to old age.
Stressing the primary need to draw the head and body artistically, not merely in the medical book manner, the author defines head types according to structure and explains what features go with these types. To illustrate the enormous diversity of head structures and proportions, he then displays a sampling of heads from racial and ethnic groups throughout the world.
Drawing the Human Head is a basic reference work and a beautiful art book unsurpassed in scope and authority. A distillation of the author's unique teaching methods, it is a classic in its field and is indispensable for every art student, art teacher, portrait and figure painter, sculptor, illustrator, and cartoonist.
