"Force: Dynamic Life Drawing for Animators" by Mike Mattesi

‘For animators or anyone exploring life drawing, this book is an inspirational choice.’ 3D World, Feb 2007 ‘Force: Dynamic Life Drawing for Animators, 2e is key to understanding how to capture forceful poses with dynamic drawing. It is informative, concise, and packed full of inspirational illustrations…Force is not just another ‘anatomy for animators’ book – it assumes that the reader has experience of figure drawing. The focus here is to build on that knowledge and to use straight and curved lines to show the direction of force in the body. Every point in the text is thoroughly demonstrated with the help of superb, dynamically drawn examples.’ – Animated News, Oct. 2, 2006
