In this book, Mr Loomis provides some very instructive advice for figure drawing, and its applications. He not only describes his methods, but details many common problems and how to avoid them. He also adds several discussional texts, explaining the practical applications of his advice, and even how to launch a career in illustration. Some suggested exercises are included.
The only criticism that I have of this book is that the 'ideal proportions' are used at almost all times. Whilst this is a good basis for any artist, the female model in particular seems rather outdated.
This book, however, gives extremely useful advice particularly adapted to those seeking to draw imaginative figures, but also to those drawing live models. All advice is rather practical, and so decisions on style are left entirely to the artist - in my opinion, this is an excellent method for developing your own style while improving your technical expertise.
