Top Reviews Most recent Top Reviews. There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. Bridgeman is an indispensable teacher of human anatomy even though he worked in the early 20th centurybut this isn’t the best book out there.
The drawings are too loose and sketchy to see clearly what he is describing. He goes through the seven typs of folds all right, but they need to be illustrated more three dimensionally. I’d choose this over Hogarth’s book, though, because Bridgeman’s written descriptions are to the point, and at least the drawings aren’t overdone. The world cries out for the definitive book on drapery: I saw one once on a guy’s desk in an animation studio, it looked like it was written in the ’50s, but I can’t remember the name; it had superbly elegant drawings and lean, no-nonsense explanations of the 7 folds.
I made some copies, but not of the title. Oh well, Bridgeman will have to do. It looks like they have blown up It looks like they have blown up small drawing example to fit it larger printing. Can not recommend this book. After reading the other very positive review, I’m wondering if we have two different books! I was looking forward to receiving this book as I’ve been experimenting drawing folds and clothing lately, but needed some guidance.
I thought this book would provide it.
Drawing the Draped Figure
There are several problems. The drawings are almost incomprehensible line drawings that give no clear picture of exactly what’s going on in the various kinds of folds.
There’s a lack of useful photographs. The poor printing quality doesn’t help. The text gives no “laws” of folds such as: Georeg fabric will always bend this way if it hangs that way, etc. In a bookstore in Italy recently I saw a book by Hogarth on the same subject.
Though it was in Italian, the drawings showed much more clearly exactly what’s going on with clothing in various positions and movements. With text in English, I can only imagine it will be far more helpful to me than this Bridgman book. I’m just happy the Bridgman book was inexpensive. As I was reading this book I kept thinking this must be a reprint of something written in the s. The writing style had that cumbersome approach of much older ‘how to’ books.
In fact the book is a reprint of another book called “The Seven Laws of Folds”, and I suspect it was orignally a book meant for sculptors. The examples are charcoal? Most of well known statues. The descriptions really don’t seem to apply to fogure at all. I tried looking through the eyes of a would-be sculptor while Drapeed read. Only then did the book darped useful. Unfortunately, I xraped another complaint.
The example sketches are, well, terrible. Many of them I could not make out. There are photographs in the book as well that are so badly reprinted I really have no georbe what they’re sposed to be. There needs to be a better book to help people draw ‘the draped figure.
A good reference book on this subject.
Bridgman is a good source for drawing instruction. This was a Christmas Gift. Maybe there just isn’t THAT much to be said about draped figures. I think the illustrations were ok from a learning perspective but the descriptions of could have used some work. Maybe it was just me See all 25 reviews.
