#NetGalley #BookReview for #AnatomyMadeSimpleforArtists by Jonathan Freemantle

My review for Anatomy Made Simple for Artists by Jonathan Freemantle, 4/5 stars.

Many thanks to Netgalley and Arcturus Publishing for providing me with an ARC of the book in exchange for an honest review.

This book is a great introduction to anatomy for beginners. It explains bone structure, muscles and how they work, and the shape of the body in a simple way that anyone can understand.

I feel it would be useful for anyone learning to draw people, as it gives some good advice on where to focus and how the posture affects your artwork.

The only thing I would have liked is to see more illustrations. There are some excellent drawings in the book, but I feel that some more would have balanced out the text and made some descriptions clearer.

All in all, a good book for beginners who are overwhelmed by the more advanced books on art.
