Eric Beddows Illustrator

Ken Nutt, who creates illustrations under the name Eric Beddows bought a copy of The Art Student's Guide to the Proportions of the Human Form. So I emailed him to ask him why, since he didn't seem to need any improvement in his drawings. He illustrated Ursula K. Le Guin's Changing Planes which is especially cool, because she has always been a favorite of mine. Here is a link to some of his illustrations for that book on her website: Changing Planes - Ursula K. Le Guin, Illustrations: Eric Beddows.

Turns out the tables of human proportions were useful to him in a new project. Here's what he had to say,

"I am currently writing and illustrating a fantasy trilogy that involves characters of all ages as well as horses and a number of other animals. I needed some absolute measurements for the children, adults and animals in my story so that I could coordinate the figures in the illustrations. Although I have a lot of standard anatomy texts, I wasn’t having much luck with measurements until I discovered your wonderful site."

He was kind enough to share some works in progress:
