Andrew Loomis' hugely influential art instruction books have never been bettered and "Successful Drawing", the third in Titan's programme of facsimile editions, is among the finest. This is a superb resource, covering the fundamentals of proportion, perspective and pattern, through scale and light, to the mastery of construction, character and consistency. "Successful Drawing" is a masterclass for all.
One of the great commercial illustrators of the 40s and 50s, Andrew Loomis's books are classics in the genre and highly sought after by commercial illustrators, comic book artists and concept artists alike. "Loomis's realistic approach infected me with the desire to make all my work, comics and otherwise, fully believable." - Alex Ross, Mythology
