Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

Properly rendering human heads, features, and faces numbers among the most challenging aspects of figure drawing and painting. This concise and useful book-written by a world-renowned art instructor-is entirely devoted to the artistic study of the human head and its deep capacity for detail and expression. With more than half a century's worth of experience as an artist and lecturer at the Art Students League of New York, George B. Bridgman is a uniquely qualified instructor. His clearly articulated lessons are accompanied by nearly 200 examples and diagrams that demonstrate how best to portray heads, features, and faces.

Bridgman emphasizes the importance of understanding the relationships between facial features and the planes of the head. He considers round and square forms; how to draw the head at eye level, above eye level, and below eye level; and eyes, noses, mouths, and ears individually. Lessons are also included on light and shadow, comparative measurements, and the principles of oval and cube constructions. The ultimate beginner's guide to accurately rendering the human head, Heads, Features and Faces is a must-have for any serious study of human figures.

   It's Bridgman
Well, if you are planning on working your way through one of his books, do not try to copy him line for line. It will not work and you will only lose your mind. Just try to figure out what he is showing you and then copy him. Every drawing is drawn in the book, and when done, you will be able to draw.
   why Is this still in print??
In terms of instructions on how to draw things, it is very poor. Originally published in the 30's, the instruction is vague. The writing is out of date and antiquated. This is essentially a leaflet in terms of size. I don 't get it.
   Buy the Complete Guide - Skip This Entirely
Bridgeman's books are compiled from sketches and notes into some kind of coherent book to explain his process, but there isn 't much in this book that is not included in the Complete Guide To Drawing From Life, while I was hounding for the book because I hoped for just a little bit more, I was disappointed. It is not garbage, say it. I give it a single star to make it emphatic that you should get the Complete Guide for slightly more money and get all the information contained within this book along with naturally, a lot more. If you do, you'll get what you want or already have from other Bridgeman books. Don 't. It is just a 60 page book of rehashed information that can be gotten in the comprehensive book.
   A bit disappointing
I expected a better industrial quality from the book. I am aware that the price comes with basic features. It's not a leather bound, but the pages are horrible, the whole composition of the pages are ugly and the flexibility of the book is just amateur, to say the least. Get a PDF, don 't bother.
   The text reads like foreign made baby crib instructions
This book is tiny in size and information. I propose this short reading for an art 101 class. The text reads like foreign baby crib instructions. Love the lofty style cover and the deceptive description. '' It would have historic value if it were a first edition.
