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

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 and example 2

Figure drawing....

If anyone has got this elusive and great book in PDF form and could spare the time, could they post a link 'figure drawing for all it's worth'?

I know I can view it at saveloomis.org, but I noticed there was a PDF floating about this thread a few weeks ago (it's gone now), and i'd prefer it in PDF format, I have all the others and have eagerly read through them, but this one is eluding me!

Thanks for anyone's help.

I just downloaded the Figure Drawing For All It's Worth PDF. The link works fine and the file is uncorrupted.

the link does work, it's the file itself that does not want to unpack properly. i don't know why...

I managed to uncompress the zip properly. It's uncorrupted on my end.

It's a good book so let's all try to help marcheen out. Are you able to uncompress other zip files or more specifically the other Loomis books hosted on rapidshare.de?

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.



In Brazil, the books (old) they are the sale in bookstores of old books (called Sebo).
I have the " Drawing the Head & Hands ".

But edition of them doesn't exist in Portuguese. Or I don't know them.

Anyone knows where to get "Creative Illustration" in PDF well done? I mean, the one at "3d artist" has a lot of blank pages, inserted ones, etc...

Thanks!
