One of the criticisms I often received was I skipped from rough sketch to final drawing with very few intermediate steps. What most folks don't know is my books get edited down from a much larger selection of drawings the publisher has to choose from. I believe the idea in putting in fewer steps was to make the books appeal to a younger audience. I actually do lots of middle steps, usually taking all figure drawings through the same basic steps. Brutes! features not only more of the middle steps (the good stuff!) but also color charts showing which muscles I have memorized and mentally use in every figure drawing.
