Draw Natural and Believable Clothed Figures
In Drawing People, award-winning illustrator and instructor Barbara Bradley provides all the information you need to render clothed human figures with energy, detail and control.
Bradley begins by teaching the basics of any drawing, including proportion, perspective and value. Next, you'll learn how to overcome the special challenges posed by clothing, including fabric folds and draping effects. Bradley illustrates how they're constructed and how to draw them in different situations--on male and female figures that are active or at rest.
These reliable, proven drawing techniques will add a natural feel to your art, resulting in figures that look as if they could walk, run or dance right off the page.

Not the best choice for beginners. But it can be with continual practice. I keep it near my workspace as a reminder or quick reference.

This is an excellent addition to my figure drawing library. Bradley offers a wealth of well illustrated techniques and ideas. Although similar in content to many of Hogarth's figure drawing books, the information is presented in a slightly different manner. This presentation is probably more helpful for a learner who requires a less analytical approach to figure drawing.

I bought this when I was making an utterly misguided attempt to learn to draw. It seems fine.
