This is awesome. Okay, it's from the 50s, includes its share of -isms from the day and some of that overexburance of mine comes from the fact that this is available free of charge online (and what's better for a wanna-be struggling artist?). But the mathematician in me is also just bowled over by...

I love this book. It's old fashioned but that's okay, especially when it comes to a book on drawing. I can't think of anything that would stop being relevant fifty years from now... The figures may be a little idealized in proportions but you can learn just as much from it. Andrew Loomis writes t...

My manga illustration teacher introduced me to this book for basic human figure drawing and i’ve been using it ever since. Although this book is very old (first published in 1943), it is still a great reference book for figure drawing in my opinion. Check out my full reference books collection he...

Enticing contours that will stir up your desire to try drawing few lines to see if you can replicate the shape of the woman or man you might like. Drawing is nothing else than a dance of the couple hand- pencil on a piece of paper- a mesmerizing one if you take your time and do not rush. The book...

When I got my hands on the original 1940s edition I felt immensely lucky. It even came with an authentically quaint handrwritten message inside. Put simply, this is the single biggest influence I have had on my artistic efforts (freelance for a number of years). The language is dated but the sentim...

As an intermediate artist I found it overwhelming. I was hoping for more how-to's and less actual complete drawings. Also the ideal human figure got tiring after 50 pages. You definitely won't learn how fat works here. He spends a page talking about complicated subjects like the dreadful Box and...

This guy is amazing- if you want to be able to draw the figure, either from life, or purely constructed from line and imagination- then this is the guy to read. This is a sumptuous re-print of the original classic and well-worth buying- however all his books a brilliant and are readily available a...

If you're an artist and you want a great book on life drawing, this is it. Thankfully it's back in print too. Highly recommended.

Finally finished this, after dipping in and out for a year and a half. His breezy mastery still feels out of reach for an amateur lug like me, but his lessons and approach at least make the path clear. I'll be returning to this as a reference for many years to come.

I am going to begin this review with a contrary statement that I have not been looking forward to reviewing this book. Not because I have any misgivings about its quality or content, quite the opposite actually. This book is so well regarded that I felt reviewing it must prove to be somewhat poi...
