The eye in drawing must follow a line or a plane or a mass. In the process of drawing, this may become a moving line, or a moving plane, or a moving mass. The line, in actual construction, must come first; but as mental construction must precede physical, so the concept of mass must come first, that of plane second, that of line last. Think in masses, define them in lines. Masses of about the same size or proportion are conceived not as masses, but as one mass; those of different proportions, in respect to their movement, are conceived as wedging into each other, or as morticed or interlocking. The effective conception is that of wedging.

Description "Excellent. The most valuable, detailed anatomical studies which are also beautifully drawn of all parts of the figure. Bridgman for nearly 50 years a teacher at the Art Students League in New York for a solid foundation and understanding of human anatomy. They have found, and continue to find, that his unique way of discovering the vitalizing forces in the human form and realizing them in drawing carries the student pleasantly over one of art's most severe hurdles.
Bridgman's superb anatomical sketches, of which there are nearly in the book, also bring clearly to fruition his lucid theories of how to draw the human body in its structure and its complex movements. Constructive Anatomy, an anatomical reference guide for the working artist, sculptor, and student, graphically shows important parts of the human body, both in motion and in repose -- hand, wrist, thumb, fingers, forearm, arm, armpit, shoulder, neck, head, eye, nose, ear, mouth, chin, trunk front, side, and back , pelvis, hip, thigh, leg, knee, ankle, foot, and toes.
Drawings of bone and muscle structure of the working of the joints and the interrelation of the various parts of the body are mainly concerned with movement of all sorts -- movements that are described in detail as well as illustrated. The bending, twisting, and turning, creasing and interlocking of the various parts of the body are represented in drawing as the wedging of masses in specific ways that are clearly defined by Mr. Every artist will save tedious hours of research with this simple but effective approach, and will be delighted with its directness and fervor.

Not that its usually something important for an artist anatomy book. But there's that. The other part, and its biggest failing, is that it's formatted horrendously! The first two pages seem to be one on top of another and then the rest of the pages have a huge blank area at the bottom. This makes it terrible to look at no matter what device you are using.
It doesn't conform to your screen unless you force it to, awkwardly. I don't know about the quality of the text itself - perhaps Bridgman has a lot of great advice. I couldn't get passed how terrible the ebook was. Gyorgy Feher. Professor is having us sketch from studies - observational studies done in the studio. In case you are wondering why anyone would need it all over. Bridgman is one of those go-to artist's reference books that can be very insightful when trying to get the head around drawing the shapes in the human body.
There are other books that are also helpful and it is best to look at ideas from multiple perspectives, however, Bridgman is one of the more important contributors to our understanding of drawing the figure. The twentieth century was a golden age for life drawing techniques and we are very lucky that teachers like Bridgman chose to share their great experience.
He was famously a hard task-master who expected great things in his students and apparently his students adored him. His students included some some artists who went on to become very famous names. Norman Rockwell wrote glowingly of his studies with George Bridgman. Jackson Pollock's sketchbooks include many drawings made from studying Bridgman's book. I have been an art teacher for many years and Bridgman's Complete Guide to Drawing From Life has always been one of those books I highly recommend for all art students.
I scoured and searched for a life drawing book and Bridgman's was the perfect book for me. At first I was reluctant to download this book because of some mixed reviews but after reading I saw that most of the negative reviews were in regards to the pdf version of the book. So I decided to check it out and sure enough the digital version is hard to read and the pictures are difficult to follow with the words, you would be reading about a hand that would be on the next page.
It wasn't an effective way to learn. If you're going to learn get the actual book it's the only way to learn in my opinion, you get the words and the references side by side as intended. Digital books get you by, but nothing is better than the real thing.
With that said lets get into the review. It is a great book for anyone who has some knowledge of anatomy and wants to learn more comprehensively about the human body.
I haven't taken a drawing class in years and wanted to refresh myself on some life drawing. From this book I was able to create dynamic poses for humanoid characters.
It teaches all about movement of joints, rotations, and muscle placement. The books that this complete guide is comprised of are a bit older but still relevant and have great examples and can be used as a source of reference.
If you are interested in any of the Bridgman's books I would suggest starting with this one and then see what book you would like a more in depth review on, there are many to chose from. It's difficult to do much better then Bridgman's. Get it, if you don't already have it. If you have it, leave a nice review.
