Drawing People Using Grids - Giovanni Civardi

If you have often struggled to draw portraits or moving people, from master artist Giovanni Civardi comes this highly visual beginners guide to drawing people using the traditional grid technique - a method that makes the first stages of drawing simple and achievable.

Artist Giovanni Civardi shows you how to create an accurate pencil sketch of the subject by laying a grid over a photo or drawing and transferring the image to the drawing surface one square at a time.

Beginning with a summary of basic human anatomy and key drawing techniques, this book contains over 90 outlines of people in a range of ages, profiles and poses, with guidance on how to add shading and tonal effects to create more detailed finished drawings. Uses material from Drawing Using Grids: Portraits with Character and Drawing Using Grids: Portraits of Babies & Children.
