The Ultimate Beginner's Guide to Drawing Figures!
To draw an anatomical figure, you don't need a stack of weighty anatomy books. Just take it step by step!
In How to Draw People, author Jeff Mellem teaches beginning artists how to draw the human figure, from stick figure to anatomically accurate person, in clear, easy-to-follow lessons. More than just a reference, this book provides the step-by-step instruction to teach you to draw the human figure and the anatomical knowledge to draw it realistically.

By the end of Level 5, you will be able to draw an expressive figure with defined muscle groups in a variety of poses both real and imagined.
