I own and have read all of Juliette s books They are are superb I have been drawing for well over six decades and there are only a handful of master draughtsmen or persons that I respect as much as Juliette She has truly paid get dues to get to the top of her profession all of her books are than worthy of being on your self and her latest is no exception. I just received my copy of Figure Drawing Atelier yesterday and I have to say its absolutely stunning Much in line with all her other books, you know you are buying a quality product when you invest the time and money into atelier training.For those that have purchased her other books in Kindle format, I highly recommend getting all her books in hardcover I have them all in both formats, and while the Kindle is convenient, they don t do these books justice The print quality is beautiful and the instructions are easy to follow Juliette Aristides writes books for all artists and the layman as well I will be doing a formal podcast review on my website dynamicsymmetryart.com over the next month. As much as people like to believe that art is some communication with the gods or with your inner self, mostly art is an accumulation of skills that build upon each other Drawing the figure is no exception No book can make someone a great artist, but this book if you follow it can make you a good at drawing the figure The process of telling then showing then having you do is how those skills are built From how to show the figure in one line line of action to blocking in, finding mass and applying values that truly create a full rendering, this book is everything except for one thing Art requires a human being to do it Just add Human.You re the human The human has to pick up a pencil or charcoal or brush and apply it to the paper That s the only secret to making art well, doing it If you apply any commitment of time whatsoever to the lessons in this book you will be amazing yourself and others quickly I love it I learned from this book and her other Beginning Drawing Atelier than I learned in 3 years of art school The difference between this book and art school is that they MAKE you draw and paint in art school With this book you need to provide your own motivation.I cannot recommend this book enough It s an instant masterpiece on learning to draw the figure.
