Paint Figures Better

55 Pieces of Potentially Bad and Conflicting Advice on How to Suck Less at Painting Figures by Working Hard for a Long Time

About the Book

Do you struggle to draw and paint figures?

I did. I sucked at painting figures for years.

This book contains the most important lessons, tools, and actions to help you overcome your barriers and finally learn to paint figures better. They worked for me and I bet they'll work for you.

This book isn't going to teach you how to draw or paint figures. It isn't a series of tutorials, anatomy diagrams, or paint by numbers.

Instead, it's a collection of 55 tips that will help you learn faster and more effectively. Some of these are fairly common sense. Others are a lot less common. And a few go directly opposite to how most people study figures.

About the Author

Noah Bradley

I'm Noah Bradley and I'm a creator. I live in Virginia with my wife, partner, and better half of Team Bradley, Rachel Bradley. We're passionate about helping other creators lead better, more fulfilling lives.

I painted pretty landscapes and mediocre figures for ten years in the fantasy illustration world for some wonderful clients. It was a lot of fun and very tiring.

I do my own thing now. I shoot and model with my wife on Reference.Pictures. I teach art on Art Camp. I make art and writing for my perpetually-unfinished project, The Sin of Man. I write a bit of fiction and non-fiction. I wrote a number of articles over the years, including such internet-hits as Don't Go to Art School and How I Became an Artist.
