The female face and the female figure have been drawn, sculpted, carved and painted by artists and craftsmen from around the world for centuries. In this book and DVD, author and teacher Ian Norbury offers his expertise and experience to help carvers take on the challenge of presenting the female face and figure in wood. Inside, readers will find tips for creating patterns, in depth anatomical drawings for better understanding of the body's muscles, step-by-step projects with detailed photos and instructions and a photo gallery of finished projects to illuminate and inspire.
