"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

Buy the book, study it, practice and you will learn how to draw! No matter what subject you want to illustrate, Loomis was a master draftsman in his own right and one of the finest that ever existed in our modern time. The books are now in reprint so I STRONGLY suggest that you get all of them before it goes out of print again and waiting 15-20 years before it goes back in print again. Trust me, you won't regret buying the books made by Andrew Loomis!
This book is an amazing resource for anyone interested in this subject.
