In Morpho: Hands and feet, artist and teacher Michel Lauricella presents a unique approach to learning to draw the human body. In this book, Lauricella focuses exclusively on the hands and feet--arguably the most popular and, for many, the most challenging parts of the body to draw successfully. Breaking the subject matter down into the underlying skeletal shapes, followed by the musculature, then skin and fat, and finally, the veins, Lauricella offers multiple approaches--from simple forms to complex renderings--and a plethora of positions and gestures are included to help you improve your drawing skills.
Geared toward artists of all levels, from beginners through professionals, this handy, pocket-sized book will help spark your imagination and creativity.
(Publisher's Note: This book features an "exposed" binding style. This is intentional as it is designed to help the book lay flat as you draw.)
