It goes from the fundamental principals and on to provide everything you need to know to push your practice - enhancing the power of your art.

Format: Paperback
This book is a brilliant guide for artists and non artists alike to learn how to sculpt a human figure. It goes through all the steps of the process very clearly and has a multitude of beautiful images so you can see exactly what to do. I love the breadth of imagery in this book. It shows you how diverse modelling and sculpting the human figure can be and as well as teaching the reader it inspires them. I would highly recommend this.

A practical publication not only for sculptors but for anyone interested in learning more about the human figure and
the creative process . Well presented and clear visuals for the appreciation of proportion , structure and movement
of the body , with a wide variety of examples. The text also presents a refreshing view of ideas about the nature of creativity . Excellent .

This is a great book for sculptures who have their work bronzed or moulded. But as I fire all my work it could have included sections that didn't require metal supports, but saying that It is a very inspirational book, fabulous photos and step by step instructions.

I attended a live sculpting course, where the author as compilled an extensive and clear explanation of various things to consider when sculpting. As an important thing to an artist is to know what is needed in order to do quality art work. Everything thing I needed has been found in the book. Amazing that some of the methods used here I had previously learned with the help of a tutor over a 10 week sculpting course in the Art Academy. Highly recommend this book to anyone interested in modelling and sculpting figures.

Format: Paperback
I'm delighted I was given this book. It covers the basics in superb detail and has the depth to hopefully guide me through to becoming a competent sculptor. Crisp lucid layout, worth owning just for the stunning images.
