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.

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...

For an aspiring artist or the illustrator who may be out of practice, Loomis' book is very insightful and instructional on how to best draw the figure. This book covers everything from gestures to fully clothed examples (drapery).
He covers both male and female forms and even delves into discussi...
