This powerful book offers a systematic approach to rendering action figures that seem to leap off the page.
BURNE HOGARTH (1911–1996), hailed as the “Michaelangelo of the comic strip,” was one of the most iconic cartoonists and influential arts educators of the twentieth century and remains so today. After attending the Chicago Art Institute and Academy of Fine Arts at the age of fifteen, Hogarth began an illustrious career in arts education, fine arts, illustration, advertising, and comics, and became recognized as one of the earliest creators of the graphic novel. Best known for his innovative illustrations of the syndicated Sunday Tarzan, Hogarth broke fresh ground in the newspaper comic strip by combining classicism, expressionism, and narrative in
a powerful, new way.
As cofounder of the School of Visual Arts—one of the world’s leading art schools—he brought his unique approach to art into the classroom. His passionate lectures on anatomy and art history formed the foundation for The Burne Hogarth® Dynamic Drawing Series that continues to teach and influence artists and animators worldwide.
Hogarth’s art has been exhibited in many important galleries around the world including the Louvre in the Museé des Arts Décoratifs and Marseilles’ Bibliothèque. He traveled the world throughout his life receiving numerous international awards and accolades.

Are there better guides? probably, But for what ever reason, the writing style and illustrations in this book "click" with me. I can now invent figures from imagination with little problem. I still need to practice, no book is a replacement for practice... but it's helped me a lot. Do not hesitate to buy this for a beginner. Even pros can learn a few things from this.
This book is so valuable to me, I'm thinking of getting a second just in case anything happens to the first. Possibly as a loaner copy.
There is a way the body naturally tilts when more weight is put on one leg than the other. Unless I am deeply mistaken, the artist in this book fails to account for the tilt that occurs between the hips and shoulders in response to this weight shift. IE if all your weight is on your right leg, that side of the hip will almost always be higher and the shoulder is normally lower on that same side as the gap between the bottom of the rib cage and the top of the hip closes. As far as I know -- unless I am completely blind --, not a single picture in this book accounts for this. And when it does it is because the body is in an action that requires it. Not to take ANYTHING from this book or this artist, but this seems so bizzare to me that I feel like I must be mistaken here. Every other art book I have accounts for and mentions this, and if you look at any of the 'old masters' drawings you will notice that this sort of position was used quite often in depicting the standing figure. Infact just google the statue of david and you will see what im talking about. Whatever you think of that, this book is still the best book on the issue.
Plus it has a ton of pictures breaking down the human body.
Con: it was 95% men so if were looking for a book that equally helps with both male and female anatomy then this isn't your type of book.
