Page edges browned, pages lightly browned but very clean, no markings, minor foxing to endpages, binding strong. May contain markings such as bookplates, stamps, limited notes and highlighting, or a few light stains. If there was a reprint of this with annotations and a disclaimer of some sort, then it probably wouldn't have such a low rating from me. Andrew Loomis is revered amongst artists including comics superstar Alex Ross for his mastery of drawing.

The section on how to draw cast shadows according to specific angles was difficult for me to understand. Fun with a Pencil is a really awesome introductory drawing book for people who have little to no experience with figure drawing or basic techniques.I could barely draw a stick figure when I downloaded Fun with a Pencil, but Loomis' techniques of starting with a simple circle and building off it really set off something in me and I was able to draw crude -- but fun -- illustrations on the first day.

brown cloth, 120 pp, covers a bit worn with some adhesion marks on front cover, extremities bumped and fraying, hinges loose, contents (esp end papers) toned else a nice copy in worn, edge torn and edge chipped dust jacket. More Hamburger icon An icon used to represent a menu that can be toggled by interacting with this icon. With delightful step-by-step instruction from Professor Blook, Loomis's charming alter ego on the page.I'd say back this up with other books on the fundamentals (including perhaps Loomis' other books on figure drawing), since formulaic lessons can become a crutch, but this book is still rooted in a lot of those basics, so you won't be lead astray. I loved the section on facial expressions and how he encourages drawing from the imagination through the use of the basic construction framework.
