To mark the launch of Drawing People as an ebook, I finally made a new cover for it!

Get the book! (coil-bound)
or
Get the ebook!

For those not familiar, this is my most acclaimed publication so far, collecting all my human tutorials with some added material:

Everything you need to know to draw the human figure in all its liveliness and diversity, illustrated in full color. Chapters:
- Introduction: Cultivating Your Drawing Skills
- Drawing the body (comparative face and body anatomy for men and women, muscle diagrams, hands and feet, notes on balance and foreshortening)
- Emotions and facial expressions (a study of a sample of 60 expressions with additional notes on posture, etc.)
- Flexibility (understand how and where the body bends)
- Aging the face and body, detailed for men and women
- Catalog of human features (eye/hair/skin color, nose/eyebrow/eye/breast shapes, body types)
- Guide to human types (detailed anatomic and facial characteristics of over 50 ethnotypes, from Ainu to Zulu, with notes on mixed types – the only such guide in existence)

The links seem to be broken. The Ring-bound version and the e-book version. The 'cheaper binding' version works, as far as getting to the site, but shows there is no product there.

I just purchased your book and have skimmed through the pages. What I like about it is that you focus on the diversity of people, e.g. explaining why feet can look different whether you walk barefoot or with shoes an (it's obvious once you realize it) or giving information about how children grow. Thank you for directing my yet-to-be developed observational skills in these directions!

Totally need to get this, I've been using the guide to human types CONSTANTLY. I can't believe this is the first one I've found--the only one I've found--because it's so necessary, but I am eternally grateful you've made it!!

It's the only proper one in existence, if I may say so  – there was nothing useful out there so I made it myself! Glad it helps :D

Just purchased this ebook on Lulu.com

Definitely worth the money!  A great reference to figure drawing and covers great detail on body types and ethnicity.  Something I have been looking for for a long time.

Great work!
