Drawing People tutorial book by Majnouna Drawing People tutorial book by Majnouna
To mark the launch of Drawing People as an ebook, I finally made a new cover for it!

Get the book! (coil-bound; for a different and cheaper binding go here)
or
Get the ebook!

For those not familiar, this is my most acclaimed publication so far, collecting all my human tutorials with some added material:

Everything you need to know to draw the human figure in all its liveliness and diversity, illustrated in full color. Chapters:
- Introduction: Cultivating Your Drawing Skills
- Drawing the body (comparative face and body anatomy for men and women, muscle diagrams, hands and feet, notes on balance and foreshortening)
- Emotions and facial expressions (a study of a sample of 60 expressions with additional notes on posture, etc.)
- Flexibility (understand how and where the body bends)
- Aging the face and body, detailed for men and women
- Catalog of human features (eye/hair/skin color, nose/eyebrow/eye/breast shapes, body types)
- Guide to human types (detailed anatomic and facial characteristics of over 50 ethnotypes, from Ainu to Zulu, with notes on mixed types – the only such guide in existence)

I just bought this on lulu and it arrived yesterday.
It's so in depth and at the same time easy to understand.
Thank you for making this great book!

Totally need to get this, I've been using the guide to human types CONSTANTLY. I can't believe this is the first one I've found--the only one I've found--because it's so necessary, but I am eternally grateful you've made it!!

It's the only proper one in existence, if I may say so  – there was nothing useful out there so I made it myself! Glad it helps :D

Just purchased this ebook on Lulu.com

Definitely worth the money!  A great reference to figure drawing and covers great detail on body types and ethnicity.  Something I have been looking for for a long time.

Great work!

SO glad to see this is out there now -- the perfect all-in-one reference guide for every aspect of drawing human beings! I've loved your tutorials for years, and now that they're in print as a collection, I can aspire to have all of them available at once, including while working on digital art. This definitely goes on my birthday wishlist.

As for the cover design itself, I think it does a good job of highlighting the completeness and diversity of the material covered, while focusing on the kind of artwork which these elements combine to allow one to create. Kudos!

Is the ebook something that can be downloades straight to the computer or does it need a certain program? (Sorry I'm not tech savy) Also would you recommend owning the ebook for the actual book?

Majnouna Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2013  Professional General Artist
It's a pdf, so it's compatible with any machine or device, no special program necessary. As for having the ebook over the print, it's up to you... It's cheaper obviously, but unless you have an iPad, you can't prop it up next to you while you're working.
