Fabulous Figures Book by Jane Davenport

You’ll love Jane Davenport’s Fabulous Figures Book with a fun, and amazingly easy technique for drawing figures….
“Start with a heart shape . . . and end with a beautiful finished piece of art!

For aspiring artists, drawing people can be intimidating—but it doesn’t have to be. Over years working as a fashion illustrator, Jane Davenport devised her own method of creating in-proportion figures. Her clever core technique involves using equal-size hearts to build the body’s structure. And Jane’s results have been astounding: her students go from “I can’t draw a stick figure” to producing gorgeous, well-proportioned illustrations. After laying out the basics, her imaginative guide walks you through working with different mediums; drawing the head, face, clothing, hair, and features; and constructing figures inspired by fashion, fantasy, life drawing, and more.”
