Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Andrew Loomis’ books were a formative influence on my life and art. My mother is an illustrator herself who worked in the era of Loomis’ heyday, and she passed his art instruction books on to me. Andrew Loomis’ instruction of how to draw the human figure was one of the first teachings that I would study, inspiring me to try and make my own artwork more realistic. My entire approach to drawing and painting superheroes owes its genesis to Loomis’ work." - Alex Ross

"Holding this book is like holding a time capsule, beautifully preserved in spirit for the next crop of future artists in the generations to come." - Art Sketch

I have been searching for a book that basically would cover everything, and this book has it all. I am very happy and cannot wait to finish it and put the knowledge to good work.

I have often heard professional illustrators swear by Andrew Loomis's books and after getting my hands on one and reading it, I can see why they would endorse him. The book is detailed, and gives you a better understanding of the human figure. This is a treasure for every aspiring artist and it would be a shame not to invest in a copy. Buy it!

Out of print for many years, Andrew Loomis figure drawing books have enjoyed a cult following. Why? Seems like just about every problem you might encounter drawing the figure is covered. With this authorized facsimile edition, you too will become a fan.
