Bridgman gives us a series of breakdowns from perfect anatomical accuracy through more manageable shapes representative of the original structures, all the way to “masses” that take in the totality of a large anatomical grouping.
A very helpful how-to book that’s practically a bible for comic artists. More useful for the pictures than the anatomy lessons.

The Energetic Line in Figure Drawing. The line, in actual construction, must come first; but as mental construction must precede physical, so the concept of mass must come first, that of plane second, that of line last. They have found, and continue to find, that his unique way of discovering the vitalizing forces in the human form and realizing anatony in drawing carries the student pleasantly over one of art’s most severe hurdles.

Bridgman’s Life Drawing George B. Apr 06, Heidi rated it it was amazing. Add all three to Cart. It is possible that this book is useful to someone but not really to me, pretty though it undoubtedly constructibe. No Kindle device required. He introduces simplified guides to drawing like using cubes to block in the mass first before going into more detail, The muscle drawings although still sketchy are delineated clear enough to show how they affect surface form.
Paper is not very good quality paperback. Drawings of bone and muscle structure of the working of the joints and the interrelation of the various parts of the body are mainly concerned with movement of all sorts — movements that are described in detail as well as illustrated. Great in combination with some background in kinesiology or anatomy. For instance, for every anatomu pulling in one direction, there must be the corresponding muscle pulling in the opposite direction.
This book just blew my mind. I highly recommend this book!

This one is more about the eye candy and good to copy from. Drawings of bone and muscle structure of the working of the joints and the interrelation of the various parts of the body are mainly concerned with movement of all sorts — movements that are described in detail as well as illustrated. Bridgman’s superb anatomical sketches, of which there are nearly in the book, also bring clearly to fruition his lucid theories of how to draw the human body in its structure and its complex movements.
Do not buy this. An essential book for figure drawing. Rather than learning how to draw all the tendons, bones and muscle groups of for example the shoulder, you are shown how the mass of the shoulder should look, and why.
