Figure Drawing for all it's Worth - Andrew Loomis

Andrew Loomis - fineart  sk site

Here's another book that has been very popular but has been out of print for a while. Fineart.sk is providing this and 3 other Andrew Loomis books online from their site. They also have some tasteful nude picture for artists. The only problem is to download each page in the books one at a time



Update - April 17, 2006 - Ryan Scott of Animation Ninja in Training has generously made all 6 pdf's available for download.

  2. I would recommend all the Loomis books. What is required is a lot of regular practice and if you're willing to put that in then there'll be no looking back. All the best with learning figure drawing.

Learning to draw

A couple of days back there was comment asking for help on starting to draw and paint. I'd asked him to join the WetCanvas! Classroom forum and to look up some additional sources from this site.
This morning I got a newsletter from drawspace . I find that it is growing to be a wonderful online resource for drawing lessons. These are divided into 3 levels - beginners, intermediate and advanced. drawspace also has a forum which is slowly growing and the activities are focussed on drawing with pencil, charcoal, color pencils and pen & ink. All the lessons have been written by one person and you have a choice of viewing it for free online or downloading the pdf version for a small fee. Brenda Hoddinott whose lessons populate this website is amongst other things a self taught artist. She is currently working on a new website along similar lines for Fine Art.

Today, Mayank has got an update with details of this site as an alternative and few other suggestions one of which I shall put …

Build your own easel

Came across this resource again recently. I had saved it in the hopes that I'd try it out one of these days. In the meantime, this goes out to all those who would like to build a well designed, inexpensive easel, now instead of spending big bucks on buying one. Ben Grosser has generously made these plans available for free. He is an artist and you can see his work here. If you do use these plans dont forget to send him photographs for his easel gallery.
