About the Author

Burne Hogarth's (1911-1996) remarkable career spanned over 60 years. He wore many hats in the worlds of fine art, art education, and art publishing. He is most famous for his internationally syndicated Sunday newspaper color page feature "Tarzan" (1937-1950) and for his illustrated adaptations of the Edgar Rice Burroughs novels "Tarzan of the Apes" and "Jungle Tales of Tarzan." A co-founder of the School of Visual Arts in New York City, Hogarth remains one of the most influential figures in art education today.

4.0 out of 5 stars The trouble with hands... 15 Dec 2002
By A Customer
If like me drawing hands is one of the more difficult parts of the anatomy to master mainly because studying our own hands is often from the wrong angle than the one that you require you might find this book useful. It's packed with lots of drawings of hands from different perspectives and help with the rules of foreshortening.
The drawings themselves are very bold and may seem too strong for some, but I feel that they benefit from looking this way as it enhances the details of the bone and muscle structure which would naturally be softened by your own style if that is what you prefer.
This book is an excellent reference to keep coming back to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loaded with examples and techniques 14 Sep 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Length: 0:18 Mins
Drawing Dynamic Hands is a really good book on drawing hands. It explains almost everything you need from the form, structures, proportions, anatomical landmarks, functions to foreshortening. The illustrated examples are plentiful with hands in almost every humanly possible pose. There are so many to practice from.

The only problem with this book is the ridiculously muscular fingers in all the examples. We don't see this level of muscles even in superhero comics. But you already know that when you buy a Hogarth book.

This book is perfect for anyone who wants to draw hands. A general anatomy reference book is recommended as companion for those who cannot get pass the over stylized Hogarth style.

(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)

This book beats all competition hands down (no pun intended). It is filled with magnificent illustrations that will boost your inspiration. It contains every possible aspect of drawing hands and it helped me a lot.
