This book is like a minor study of anatomy than just "how to draw simplfied style". It shows the difference between traditional and simplfied styles and details how the two styles concentrate on different anatomical features. I got this as a companion to Drawing Dynamic Comics (Cutting Edge (Watson-Guptill Paperback)) and the two complement each other brilliantly. Like other reviews have said, this book doesn't start at the beginning and so is less suitable for those who are starting to learn how to draw comic-art. But as a specific or even a second reference book or to further progress in drawing comic art it works brilliantly.

Clear concise and yet not patronsing. Excellent book.

I bought this book for my boyfriend who was getting into comic/figure drawing. I draw myself and I think it is a really good book for someone learning about drawing anatomy. The simplified shapes and lines are really good for a beginner and it is a really modern way of comic drawing that looks really stylish. Would recommend this book to anyone wishing to improve their drawing skills

Brilliant book and the first superhero one I find really useful. I previously bought "How To Draw Comics - The Marvel Way" but I found it to be dated and not very helpful, this on the other hand is brilliant. I really like this book and I'm a huge fan of Christopher Hart.

This is a great reference book for any artist that desires to create a more stylised look for their characters. It shows normal anatomy and the simplified version side by side so you can visualise the differences easily. It also goes in a step by step format starting with face shape and has pages dedicated to both the male and female form. It is also evident that Christopher Hart has good artistic talents, unlike so many how-to-draw books on the market today. Overall a great book, I highly recommend it!

The beginning of the book is quite promising detailing on pages 12 and 13 how to draw a stylised face. Pages 14 to 21 give good facial expressions and keen artwork. Pages 24 to 49 go into depth on face construction. Pages 56 to 61 give the best artwork of the book showing basic muscle constucts. The rest of the book shows muscles within characters.
Overall deduction, fantastic artwork but not much detail into recreatable anatomy for a beginner.

Format: Paperback
This is a book that looks at superheroes so to begin with if you're not interested in action-adventure comics this likely isn't for you. As a lecturer who teaches computer games concept art and comics I would say its a good book for those who look to their heroes from the Marvel and DC traditional mould. The characters are not in proportion and you wouldn't expect them to be. I do like the way the books takes the simplified skeleton to the ink stage. While not my favourite of his books it still follows the well laid out format of others and is one for the library.
