Format: Hardcover
Length: 1:21 Mins
I never thought I would be able to see or own an actual copy of this book, ever.

Thanks to Titan Books, this book is finally getting reprinted. The wait is over.

The production quality of the book is excellent. It's a 208-page hardcover that's slightly larger than A4 size. The drawings are reproduced very clearly. If you've seen the PDF copies that are floating on the internet, this is exactly that except in physical copy, right down to the number of words per line.

I love the text of the book. The tone is very encouraging and the instructions are always clear. The examples are beautifully illustrated. It's easy to follow along and learn.

This is a highly recommended book on figure drawing, a classic that gets mentioned frequently.

Loomis' Figure Drawing is THE figure drawing book par excellence! The quality is much better than the scans you see on the internet and it's really nice not to have to read this on a computer screen.I've seen an older copy a long time ago and the quality of print in the Titan edition is there folks!.If I could only have one book on figure drawing -this would be it!This book is a steal at the price that Amazon sells it for.Get one you won't regret it!

First of all, the book is quality made. Tight bindings and very detailed images.

Much of the fundamentals of anatomy have not changed since this book was originally released over half a century ago, so this book still maintains a lot of value for the beginner and intermediate artist.

Loomis has lessons on learning how the anatomy moves and works the way it does, understanding the skeletal system and the muscles and how they interact.

There are great lessons on constructing the anatomy in varying positions including standing, sitting, reclining, kneeling, in motion, etc. Covers male, female and even children

Great topics on how to bring your drawing to life, tilted head, twist in the torso, bent arms and legs

Very nice lessons on perspective and how to put multiple characters in a scene in proper perspective

A great value to the aspiring artist or even a pro in the field who needs a handy reference for those troubling assignments!

Recommended.

This is a good book for a commercial artist, though very much a product of its time.
Poses reminded me of the old "Calendar Art"
The beginning chapters were useful to me, especially the illustrations on perspective.
. This latter part was worth the price of this book
