Whether you want to learn figure drawing as a hobby or make a career out of it, the simple
instructions in this book will help you in achieving that goal.

Remember the key to successful drawing of the human figure is to practise one concept at a time.

Aditya Chari's approach to 'Drawing' reaffirms Michelangelo's statement that 'Drawing is Design'.
And, it is this design aspect that gets percolated in the mind of any one who studies this book
with discerning interest. Every single page of this book is well designed, and
What's more, it also underlines an extremely methodical approach to 'Drawing'.

A special word of appreciation is for Aditya Chari's innovative rendering techniques, that make
FIGURE DRAWING such a scintillating visual experience.

The number of good books for study of human figures are comparatively very few. This book,
"Figure Study made Easy" , by Aditya Chari which is a sequel to his earlier successful book
"Portrait Techniques made Easy", is equal in all respects to any foreign publication. This book
will not only help in study of human figure but will also acquaint you with animation drawing.
