After recently completing another semester of university, I am well underway in my summer break furiously studying away for the MCAT exam scheduled for August. However, I still find it important to carve away at least half an hour a day to produce some type of art. Today, I pulled out my copy of Butch Krieger’s Figure Drawing Studio that I obtained about a year ago but had not looked at until now. This book uses model pose photography to introduce readers to figure drawing, and it seems mostly geared towards those who either do not have access to live models or who want to prepare for live model drawing. Having taken a figure drawing course before, I wasn’t sure whether this book would offer me what I really wanted (mostly I want to hammer down my anatomy well and speed up my drawings), but I worked through the first chapter anyways.
