  3. CREATIVE ILLUSTRATION

Even for non-artists like myself, Loomis' books are highly sought-after, because the examples he includes are just so beautifully rendered, including full-length nudes, portraits and figure studies. Intended for the artist who wishes to make illustration a career, this is a real professional course. It's broken into five parts (each with dozens of individual components): Line, Tone, Color, Telling the Story, and Creating Ideas. Learn More
  4. FUN WITH A PENCIL How Everybody Can Easily Learn to Draw
    $39.95

    In this work Andrew Loomis allows his skillful pencil to speak almost for itself. Hundreds of illustrations (from the simplest squares, circles, and boxes to complicated and professional group scenes) lead the reader almost without his knowing it into a hitherto closed field of expression. In easy sentences, the artist explains the essential new step taken in each series of pictures, keeps his readers laughing at their own first clumsiness, encourages them to new efforts, prevents them from taking themselves (or him) too seriously. But the way to learn to draw is to start drawing, and this book is to be read with paper and pencil at one's side. Learn More

Though he has pulled in influences from everywhere, he is no copyist. THB hands forward the authenticities garnered during his studies [of past illustation masters], giving them to the world via his art..."
