In this book, Michel Lauricella presents both his artistic and systematic methods for drawing the human body--with drawing techniques from the corch (showing the musculature underneath the skin) to sketches of models in action.
In more than 1000 illustrations, the human body is shown from a new perspective--from bone structure to musculature, from anatomical detail to the body in motion. Morpho is a rich, fascinating, and helpful book that can go with you everywhere on your sketching journey.
