Figure drawing is the most essential - and the most difficult - of all the skills for the artist to learn. In this manual Burne Hogarth introduces his own system of figure drawing, which should make it possible to visualize and accurately render the forms of the human body from every conceivable point of view. First Hogarth describes the forms of the human figure. Then he demonstrates his "deep space" notion, a systematic sketching order that is the key to drawing the figure with believable interconnection of forms and control of foreshortening. By mastering this remarkable system, artists should be able to draw an amazing variety of poses, actions and gestures without a model, while maintaining the correct relationship between forms.
Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
BURNE HOGARTH (1911–1996), hailed as the “Michaelangelo of the comic strip,” was one of the most iconic cartoonists and influential arts educators of the twentieth century and remains so today. After attending the Chicago Art Institute and Academy of Fine Arts at the age of fifteen, Hogarth began an illustrious career in arts education, fine arts, illustration, advertising, and comics, and became recognized as one of the earliest creators of the graphic novel. Best known for his innovative illustrations of the syndicated Sunday Tarzan, Hogarth broke fresh ground in the newspaper comic strip by combining classicism, expressionism, and narrative in
a powerful, new way.
As cofounder of the School of Visual Arts—one of the world’s leading art schools—he brought his unique approach to art into the classroom. His passionate lectures on anatomy and art history formed the foundation for The Burne Hogarth® Dynamic Drawing Series that continues to teach and influence artists and animators worldwide.
Hogarth’s art has been exhibited in many important galleries around the world including the Louvre in the Museé des Arts Décoratifs and Marseilles’ Bibliothèque. He traveled the world throughout his life receiving numerous international awards and accolades.

But if you aspire to draw or paint powerful, idealistic, and expressionistic figures, combine the lessons of this book with drawing from athletic models. If you're into Michelangelo with his use of larger-than-life figures that use exaggerated poses and anatomy to convey strong emotion, you'll like this book.
After practicing the lessons inside the book, you'll be able to spot and draw them better when you draw from a model. Your powerful figures will have more authority to them. And with enough figure drawing under your belt, plus what you've learned from this book, you'll be able to draw figures out of your head in any position you want them in.
The Disney animated feature "Tarzan" was obviously inspired by Burne Hogarth's version of the comic strip "Tarzan." The animators learned many lessons from Hogarth, including foreshortening and dynamic poses and anatomy. I'll bet this book was an important reference to whoever worked on that film.
Although his fans will disagree, if you read carefully between the lines of their reviews, they're often saying the same thing; with a radical difference in emphasis. They think it was worth it. In my opinion learning this system is a form of artistic suicide, a one-way ticket to hack-dom. I sincerely doubt that what is valuable in this book can be separated from what is artificial, hackneyed, mannered and sterile.
Even if you want to draw super-heroes (the only application of this book that I can remotely entertain), you should read and work through a variety of books. The public library usually has decent ones available for free. Of the books that I've used, Master Class in figure drawing by Robert Beverly Hale gives you a taste of what it must have been like to sit in on Hale's legendary classes, and Artistic Anatomy by Richer provides more than you'll ever need to know about the human body. Learning to draw the figure should be approached as a great adventure (as all great challenges are). Learn anatomy systematically - don't learn a system of anatomy... You'll end up with a system anyway, but it will be your own, earned through study, practice and inquiry.
Using this book is caking out. Don't do that.
