Author(s): Loomis Andrew
The illustrator Andrew Loomis (1892-1959) is revered amongst artists - including comics superstar Alex Ross - for his mastery of figure drawing and his clean, realist style. His hugely influential series of art instruction books have never been bettered, and "Figure Drawing" is the first in Titan's programme of facsimile editions, returning these classic titles to print for the first time in decades.
"My entire approach to drawing and painting superheroes owes its genesis to Loomis' work." (Alex Ross)"
