5.0 out of 5 stars does just what it says, and very well too 23 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book does just what it says: teaches you how to draw human figures of the type featured in comic strips (though the skills are relevant to other types of drawing too). It does this using a very well-designed step-by-step approach, with so many illustrations to make everything crystal clear. Really effective and at the same time enjoyable!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lessons of intensity and fun at the same time! 12 Oct 2013
By Grady Harp - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Stan Bendis Kutcher has created an exceptionally complete drawing book that may be focused on artists who create comics, but is so well written and filled with a plethora of visual diagrams that it could just as easily be a textbook for basic figure drawing classes in art schools. But comic art is the goal here and Kutcher states that goal well: `Comic art or sequential art is a means to capture a sequence or moment in time by telling a story. The aim of this book is to advance your understanding of anatomy so that your overall quality will improve in both the short and long term.'

He divides his book into chapters that slowly advance the reader form the materials to the completed drawing. In the opening chapter he thoroughly discusses materials, listing all the items necessary from pencil and ink and paper and including digital mediums to draw with, mixed media - very complete and accompanied with photographs of each of the tools needed just to make it simple. Next he advances to Basic Shapes (forms from one to 3 dimensional), then Perspective. His major chapter is on basic anatomy and he offers ample illustrations in drawings, muscle diagrams, and skeletons including how to create poses. This is followed by a brief but very clear explanation of the Golden Rule - an here he discusses the Fibonacci Spiral or the Golden Spiral is achieve the beautiful line. In chapter six (`In Detail') he teaches in extreme how to draw the head, eye, nose, mouth, ears, neck, torso and hips, the back, arms, hand, fist, legs, feet with drawings of models that show how to build from blocks to human form.

Then comes the magic - `Putting it all together' - and this chapter is so fine it could be hung on gallery walls. He takes multiple figures and starts form the initial line drawing, goes through all the steps in the preceding chapters and comes up with many characters that are very impressive. Stan Bendis Kutcher is a very fine artist, and now he proves he is as fine a teacher. All artists approaching the figure shod buy this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes, But I WANT TO DRAW THE "LAVA-MAN" !, 27 Jun 2014
By Bassocantor - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Another great book by Stan Bendis Kutcher. I suspect many people will soon discover this artist's books--especially considering the very reasonable prices.

For me, the best part of the book was the section showing Perspective, which is Chapter 3. There are about 5-6 pages illustrating the concept in different ways. Following the perspective chapter, Stan presents lessons on Basic Human Anatomy. This chapter is the heart of this book. But don't miss that brute on the cover of Chapter 4! It's "Ultra Chameleon" man. (I guess I'm the only reader who doesn't know who Ultra Chameleon is. Sigh.)

Another excellent section is Chapter 6, IN DETAIL, where Stan illustrates the muscles of the Neck. This is really interesting, and it shows the "ropy" style of muscles in the neck.

Some other highlights:

♦ Same high quality as in his other books.
♦ Love the artwork--especially the 'LAVA MAN!"
♦ The "progression" of drawing technique is very helpful to see how the artist is accomplishing the sketch.
♦ Stan explains the "Golden Ratio." It took me just a few moments to grasp this concept. Not too difficult to get the hang of.
♦ On a more mundane level, I like the extensive Table of Contents that makes to easier to find sketches I like.

Reading Suggestion: If possible, read this book on a color screen. On my kindle, I couldn't really appreciate the sketches as much as on another monitor.

Honestly, there is WAY TOO MUCH to talk about in a review. This book is full of lots of fun and educational sketches. The author is one very talented individual, who clearly understands his craft.

If you are looking for a helpful guide to help you learn the basics of comic book art, you've found the right one! Drawing Anatomy for Comics is a simple, step-by-step guide that teaches you the fundamentals of comic book art.
It starts out by explaining in detail the supplies you'll need, from the types of pens and pencils to types of paper and everything in between. It even tells you what not to use so you're guaranteed the best experience possible. Then you move on to basic shapes, shading techniques, a quick anatomy lesson, and explanations for terms like “the golden ratio” and “vanishing point.”
After that, Stan shows you step-by-step how to draw everything you will ever need. Torsos, heads, eyes, hands, necks, and even noses and ears. He shows you different poses you can use, and how to use perspective to create the perfect model. There are pictures that break down the individual steps, and you easily follow along with his instructions. Once you read through this book, your knowledge of comic book anatomy will be more enhanced, and the tips and tricks he provides here will help you become a better artist.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very informative! 3 Jun 2014
By Fil314 - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found this book very interesting, even though I'm not an "arty" person. I like the way in which the author explains step-by-step how to draw each part of the human body. I actually got it - and I REALLY can't draw! But I'm good at Maths - that's why I enjoyed the part about the "Golden Ratio". I never knew that there are Maths in art, never mind comics. I must admit, after reading this book, I realised that art (and especially comics) is more interesting than I thought! I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes to learn the basics about comics illustrations.
