With exercises sprinkled throughout the book, Keys to Drawing is a beginner to an intermediate-friendly book that helps to teach the fundamentals such as how to free your hand, learning how to measure proportions, and an overview of the drawing process.

Furthermore, Andrew also gives you a variety of walk-throughs on drawing the human figure in just about any position imaginable including kneeling, reclining, crouching, sitting, walking, running, etc.

Employing the block-in method of figure drawing coupled with a concentration on contours and, of course, drawing the body itself, you will get a much deeper understanding of striking the right value in your piece to accurately represent the figure.

While some of the previous figure drawing books concentrated on the subject of the figure itself, in Figure Drawing: Design And Invention, you will learn the muscle groups of the human form in a full-color and easy to digest manner.

While most figure drawings concentrate on the nude body in its purest form (which Mike does open within this book), he also brings into the equation the topic of clothes and how they can convey the motion of the figure.

But I slept ill. Within an hour of tumbling drowsily to bed I was awakeagain, thirsty, restless, hot and cold by turns and unnaturally excited.I had drunk a lot, but neither the mixture of wines, nor the Chartreuse,nor the Mavrodaphne Trifle, nor even the fact that I had sat immobileand almost silent throughout the evening instead of clearing the fumes,as we normally did, in some light frenzy of drunken nonsense, explainsthe distress of that hag-ridden night. No dream distorted the images ofthe evening into horrific shapes. It seemed I heard St. Mary's strikeeach quarter till dawn. The figures of nightmare were already racingthrough my brain as throughout the wakeful hours I repeated to myselfAnthony's words, catching his accent, soundlessly, and the stress andcadence of his speech, while under the closed lips I saw his pale,candle-lit face as it had fronted me across the dinner-table. Onceduring the hours of darkness I brought to light the drawings in mysitting-room and sat at the open window, turning them over. Everythingwas black and dead-still in the quadrangle; only at the quarter-hoursthe bells awoke and sang over the gables. I drank soda water and smokedand fretted, until light began to break and the rustle of a risingbreeze turned me back to my bed.

Learning how to draw people can be quite intimidating, but also very rewarding. Offered in this book are drawing techniques from Tony Ryder, who believes artists can create masterful drawings by taking a three-step approach toward taming the barrage of visual information presented by the human figure.

Narrator: Then, on the 22nd of September, 1862, the newspapers brought astonishing news: Lincoln was promising to sign an Emancipation Proclamation on New Year's Day. "All persons," Lincoln wrote, "held as slaves within any State in rebellion shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free." The proclamation was the first sign that the president was moving by agonizing steps to a new understanding of the war. For Lincoln, the carnage had become unendurable, unless it could be given over to a higher purpose.Still, Garrison was wary: Lincoln seemed to be hedging. In December of 1862, only weeks before the promised date, Lincoln presented Congress with a dramatic peace plan: if the Southern states would lay down their arms, they could keep their slaves for another 40 years. Abolitionists were baffled. In the space of five months, the president had declared that the war wasn't about slavery, suggested that all black people should leave the United States, promised to emancipate the slaves on January 1st, and finally offered to let Southerners keep their slaves until 1900. Garrison, Douglass, and every other abolitionist had good reason to wonder whether Lincoln would ever sign the Emancipation Proclamation.New Year's Day, 1863, was an anxious vigil. Tense with anticipation, Boston's abolitionists made their way to two gatherings. At the Music Hall, William Lloyd Garrison and Harriet Beecher Stowe attended a concert with some of the city's most distinguished figures. Boston's black citizens poured into Tremont Temple to listen to speakers and sing hymns. But Frederick Douglass, the man everyone had come to hear, didn't say much of anything at all.Nine o'clock became 10, and then 11, and still there was no word. Douglass remembered being unable to listen to the speakers, as he kept his eye on the door. Finally, near midnight, a messenger rushed onto the stage. Lincoln had kept his word. Every enslaved person in the South was then, thenceforward, and forever free.
