I was wondering, does anyone know if digital versions of Andrew Loomis's books are available for purchase? Those books are wonderful, and IMHO will be a great asset to seasoned as well as inspiring artists.

They're hard to get hold of, but there's a site dedicated to preserving Loomis' art books : http://www.saveloomis.org/

I've got a copy of 'figure drawing for what it's worth' as pdf, but don't have serverspace or traffic enough to host them - I can give it to you directly though if you're interested.

They're ok, certainly not the best though. Niccolades "The Natural Way To Draw" is much better. Or Betty Edwards' "Drawing from the right side of the mind". Robert Beverly Hales' "Drawing lessons From The Great Masters". DAli's "50 Secrets Of Magic Craftmanship". Burne Hogarth, of course.

These are all head and shoulders above Loomis, who is mediocre at best. Why aim for that?

Heavy? I mean, I've put on a few pounds but I didn't think i would show here! lol!

I'm sure a search for these authors in Amazon would be successful

Robert Beverly Hale and Burn Hogarth are published by Watson Guptil press.
The Dali book is a Dover publication.
And Betty Edwards is.......can't locate mine, but she's everywhere.

Jose M Parramon's How to Draw Heads and Protraits" Watson Guptil, is very good traditional instruction. And I love Ettore Maiotte's "The Painting the Nude Handbook: Learning from the Masters" Clarckson Potter pub. It even features art that doesn't suck. Which is always nice.

Bittorrent is great when you have a large group of people downloading a file but for these Andrew Loomis books the seed group is NEVER large enough on www.SaveLoomis.org to get any kind of satisfactory connection.

Soooo...

I uploaded three of the Loomis books to a site called http://www.rapidshare.de/ They host large files up to 30MBs for free indefinitely as long as there is one download within a month. There are TWO conditions.


You're only allowed to download 20-30MBs an hour. You then have to wait for them to clear your IP.
You have to wait approximately 60 seconds after you request a "Download-Ticket" for it to start.


Cool? Here are the links to the zipped pdfs of-

Andrew Loomis - Eye of The Painter - 25MBs (http://rapidshare.de/files/1617611/Andrew_Loomis_-_Eye_Of_The_Painter.pdf.zip.html)

Andrew Loomis - Fun with a Pencil - 11MBs (http://rapidshare.de/files/1617664/Andrew_Loomis_-_Fun_WIth_a_Pencil.pdf.zip.html)

Andrew Loomis - Succesful Drawing 22MBs (http://rapidshare.de/files/1617739/Andrew_Loomis_-_Successful_Drawing.pdf.zip.html)

No problem.

Sir Mod Lunatique? Perhaps you can sticky this thread?

BTW As soon as I get a chance I'll see if I can shave some MBs off of the PDFs of "Creative Illustration" and "Drawing the Head and Hands" in Adobe Acrobat. At the moment they're too large for RapidShare.

05-07-2005, 05:36 PM
Once again, thanks for the info guys. IMHO I feel Loomis's work is somewhat under rated. He apparently taught at the School Of The Art Institue Of Chicago, my old school, so I was just curious as to what might be available out there. I think John Vanerderpool's little book on figure drawing is quite helpful as well, I am not sure if it's still in print or not.

These are all head and shoulders above Loomis, who is mediocre at best. Why aim for that?

I can't say that I agree. What Loomis teaches is very practical and to the point for people that want to learn the nuts and bolts of what makes good illustration. Loomis was a successful and respected commercial artist, so his teachings are along the line of commercial illustration. If that is your focus, then Loomis delivers. The other books you've mentioned lean more towards general drawing, but they do not teach important elements of successful illustration like storytelling. If you want to just learn to draw, they are fine, but if you want to learn effective storytelling as a visual artist, then the Loomis books are much better--particularly "Creative Illustration" and "Successful Drawing." "Eye of the Painter" is also an excellent book on the subject of painting.

I don't like Hogarth at all, and I know a lot of other artists that don't. He draws everything as if every single muscle in the body are fully flexed at any given time, or every fabric is overwhelmingly stressed with unrealistic number of folds, and his teaching is very clinical, without any emphasis on grace, elegance, creativity, or beauty. Loomis on the other hand, teaches you those other things--which are extremely important to anyone that wants to not just draw or paint, but be able to express beauty and tell stories too.

edit - I added a link to this thread in the art theory/tutorial sticky.

just out of interest,


Whats the word of spreading Loomis books over the net and copyright?

arent these copyrighted material that we are sharing and spread?

People have tried to get the Loomis family to reprint the out-of-print books, but for some reason, they are not interested in the legacy of Loomis and have no interest in dealing with it. AFAIK, multiple attempts have been made, all met with a cold shoulder on the part of the Loomis family.

I'm not sure if it's ok to spread digital copies of out-of-print books online, or if the fact that the people with the rights refuse to reprint the books makes it ok. The online Loomis books have been around for a few years now and widely known. I don't think anyone's raised an eyebrow yet.

regarding the copyright issuse, as far as i can remember its legal to distubute the books for educational purposes(the saveloomis site isnt working so i cant check) since 2000 or 2001.
this is problerly why the loomis family dosent let any publishers reprint it:wise:

I was under the impression that another (less talented) illustrator/author (Walter Foster, I believe is the name) had purchased the rights to the original copyrighted material and the distribution was more of a protest to the horrific mutilation this guy had done to the original material.

example 1 (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/1560100095/qid=1115566471/sr=8-1/ref=pd_csp_1/103-8728286-2013432?v=glance&s=books&n=507846) and example 2 (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/1560100109/qid=1115566471/sr=8-2/ref=pd_csp_2/103-8728286-2013432?v=glance&s=books&n=507846)

In general, countries that are signatories (http://www.copyrightaid.co.uk/berne_convention_signatories.htm) to the Berne Convention (http://www.law.cornell.edu/treaties/berne/overview.html) must provide a minimum level of copyright protection. The convention states that literary works will be protected for the life of the original author, plus fifty years (when did Loomis pass away?). The convention also states that signatories are free to extend the duration of protection which is what the USA did if 1998 when it passed the Sonny Bono Copyright Term Extension Act (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sonny_Bono_Copyright_Term_Extension_Act). The result is that an author's copyright would last until seventy years after his death, while copyrights for works of corporate authorship would last 75 to 95 years. There were other changes to US copyright law so the safest action is to follow the guidelines (http://www.gutenberg.org/howto/copyright-howto) set out by Project Gutenberg (http://www.gutenberg.org/), who is creating eBooks of public domain literary works.

I found a "Drawing the head and hands, by Andrew Loomis" recent re-print - in spanish...

The book was re-printed by an Argentine publishing house, "Edicial", in 2001. As far as I can tell, it's just a translation, and no other content was changed. The Publishing house also states that they re-printed all of the other books, except "Fun with a Pencil". I found it in my local Borders bookstore (and 2 other copies) in Carolina, Puerto Rico for $24.99 US. The ISBN is 950-506-080-7.

Hey all,

Went to the local Kinkos today and tried to get a copy of a Loomis book printed out, and well after looking into the copyright information so the counter-lady wouldn't feel as though she were about to be fired and sued--it seems that according to Copyright Law, it would be illegal to print out Loomis' works without permission from either Penguin (which owns Viking) or the family. As for the death of the author and out of print issues, Loomis passed away in 1959 (so even with the 70 yrs additional they add which I read can be increased) we'd still have to wait till somewhere near 2030; as for out-of-print it means nothing about out-of-copyright (by law it means that it defaults back to family which re-registered their copyright on the books after 1978 so they have at least another 70 yrs -- 2047 at least).

So unless you can find something from the publisher stating that it is okay with them to print the book for personal use, then be wary of the copyright fairy. :|

If anyone knows different, I'd love to know...so I can go back to Kinkos. :)

well I have to say I just found this thread and clicked on Loomis book the first one in the website... "Fun with a Pencil"

I must admit I suck at drawing... but I followed from page 8-18 and in 10 pages was able to draw what he was drawing.. So I would say it is a great way to learn some things, I am having fun doing all these little faces :)
thanks for sharing this website and his teachings.

Hope these ebooks will be of great help, just started out learning more about illustration/digital art and don't really know where to start! Hopefully this thread will point me in the correct direction, Andrew Loomis here i come!

Btw cloud, perhaps you could use megaupload.com instead of rapidshare, IMO it is better than rapidshare since it doesn't really have that much limitations.

Hi everyone,

Just in case anyone is having trouble downloading the PDFs (which was the case with me, though I can't remember anymore why, actually...) here's a method how to create a PDF yourself so you can always fall back to saveloomisdotorg.

If you (on saveloomisdotorg) open each page of the book you're interested in (tabbed browsing helps a lot...) and save each page as an image to let's say a directory called "drawing head and hands" you can select all of the jpgs and via rightclick print them *to a pdf-printer* such as the free PDFcreator (http://sourceforge.net/projects/pdfcreator/) and voilą...

it sounds like an awful lot of work (saving each image), but it's not that bad actually and if for some reason a download does not work you can do it like this - I put together everything from Loomis that way, except of Creative Illustration.

Just thought you might want to know...

Thanks to those who have been hosting these pdfs. Loomis books are extremely difficult to find and very expensive when you do find them. So, these are a most welcome treat indeed! I think if nothing else, Loomis is an excellent starting point and he's really good at explaining the nuts and bolts that will get your going.

Of some of the others mentioned... Burne Hogarth... well, I think his style is closely related to comic book drawing - if he's the one I'm thinking of. So, that would explain the emphasis on muscles and dynamic poses.

I haven't read them yet (I have to dig up my english-dutch dictionary first, I know I left it somewhere...), but from what I've heard here, Loomis is like the Holy Grail for artists, so I'll definitely give it a try!
I was just wondering: i know the original loomis is out of print and very rare, but I've also heared of reprints, but with a lot of chapters missing (or something like that). Let's say i walk into a bookstore and i see a copy of a loomis book (hey, you never know, right?). How can I tell if it is the real thing or just a cheap incomplete reprint? Since i don't know what both of them look like... :p

Mu
11-04-2005, 12:46 PM
Well this should be rather simple...

first of all they should be rather old and used as they are out of print for years.

Besides you can take a look at each page of all the books at saveloomis.org in advance and find out what those books are all about, anyway.

And somewhere in this thread there was a link to amazon to show the "loomislookalike"-version.

The Loomis books published by Walter Foster, "Figures in Action" & "How to Draw the Head," were edited and condensed. The originals were published by several different places; Viking and a couple others. I remember reading somewhere that a person who wanted to have the PDFs on their site contacted one of these places and was told as long as they were not being resold it was cool. Whether or not that's on a case-by-case basis, I can't say. You never heard this from me ;).

Loomis died in 1959, by the way. Both he and Nicolaides learned from Bridgeman. Nicolaides' style resembles Bridgeman in many ways, but I prefer Loomis. He has a much cleaner and accurate touch that makes it easy to understand and emmulate.

Hi,

depends on your level

As I am more or less an art idiot "fun with a pencil" was exactly what I needed for a start. It starts with drawing balls and funny faces (preparation for his ball-and-plane method of constructing human heads) and deals with complete gestures, perspective, composition, light and shadow.

"Successful Drawing" and "Figure Drawing For what it's worth" as well as "drawing the head and the hands" each seem to be a good next step, which takes the above concepts even further (more detailed study material).

"Eye of the painter" and "Creative Illustration" are aimed at professional illustrators (even giving them career tips) though the rules for composition and especially most of the stuff in "Creative Illustration" holds true for a beginner's attempts at drawing, too.

"Fun with a pencil" is exactly that: fun... with a pencil. Give it a try....

Sorry to bump a older thread, just wanted to mention the saveloomis org site has removed all the books.

Anyone happen to know if they are planing on reprinting these books (and maybe that was the reason they took them down)? I wasn't fast enough in getting the images saved :(

Anyone know where to get these now? the pixeldesigns.org link is coming up with just ads on it, and of course being behind a firewall I can't use the rapidshare site. Thanks in advance for any help.

you need to type drawing tutorials within the search area and contained in a 494 meg file you will find 4 of andrews books
Andrew Loomis - Drawing Heads And Hands.pdf
Andrew Loomis - Successful Drawing.pdf
Loomis Andrew - Figure Drawing - For All It's Worth.pdf
