    The tips and tricks are indispensable for anyone drawing the human form or face, regardless of the style. First the anthropomorphic attitude of mind on the part of the student already referred to must be combated by the teacher. A student's feeling for form may perchance be somewhat stark, indeed may verge on ugliness, to the point of exaggerating or caricaturing the form, but the wise teacher will be shy of admonishing- such a student, of advising him to look for smoothness, grace or beauty, because character, individuality and strength may be the chief note in that pupil's future work.

Animation is just a cartoony way to mimic real movements, and to do this accurately you need to know how the human figure moves.

    But the exercises are not aimed at the complete beginner, so if you have no experience this book may not suit your needs. In this case it is a costume. He tries to reproduce a naked person, making a sort of inventory of physical characteristics, so many fingers, toe-nails, etc, Such drawings usually lack the higher interests of the figure, the flow of line, the rhythm of the accents of light and dark, the unity of the long line of shade running down the figure and revealing the "cubist" typical shape. This is to make sure that the facial feature is aligned properly in the middle. Notice how these curves help tie the the forms of the figure together. Your humility to humanity can incite your hunger to become an amazing artist!
