Dynamic Human Anatomy
An Artist's Guide to Structure, Gesture, and the Figure in Motion
An essential visual guide for artists to the mastery and use of advanced human anatomy skills in the creation of figurative art.
Dynamic Human Anatomy picks up where Basic Human Anatomy leaves off and offers artists and art students a deeper understanding of anatomy, including anatomy in motion, and how that essential skill is applied to the creation of fine figurative art.
Praise for Dynamic Human Anatomy
"Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and Raphael drew the human body with an understanding of its workings from the inside outside—as have thousands of artists since. Who better to teach this method than Roberto Osti, who trained as a medical illustrator before turning to fine art. . . . Dynamic Human Anatomy, a follow-up to his book Basic Human Anatomy, explains how this methodology can be used to reach beyond static depictions in order to 'convey a sense of life or express psychological character.'"
