Agak menarik pada panduan melukis bayang-bayang kerana tiada ilustrator yang menyediakan panduan ini. 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.

Released by Titan Books, London, UK it's worth time spent in studying and performing exercises in each chapter. This method has proved effective for the novice and to individuals who believed they had no ability at all. It's old, and I can think of some professors and professionals who might tsk at some of these formulas, but it still has some really good nuggets of knowledge.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'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. Though a little complex to read, this would still be a good “rare book find” gift for a budding artist. Andrew Loomis is revered amongst artists including comics superstar Alex Ross for his mastery of drawing.

I loved the section on facial expressions and how he encourages drawing from the imagination through the use of the basic construction framework.

Anybody could pick up this book and get a great grasp for how to start drawing and where to progress from there.

Classic instruction in the art of pencil drawing by renowned American illustrator Andrew Loomis and a book also famous for its memorable dust jacket which is highly regarded among the exemplary tradition of American pre-war dj art. Results of figure drawings require at least some knowledge of anatomy, not possible with information presented in book alone. Unclipped pictorial jacket has a minor chip on the upper edge of the rear panel, small closed tear on the bottom edge amd upper edge of the front panel, otherwise looks new in mylar sleeve. I'm reading here that people don't think this is a good book for beginners, but I started with this book and learned how to draw well from the techniques. here puts down in black and white a method which will teach anyone, no matter who awkward he is with his fingers, to draw.

All the principles are very HARD things to do, and mastering these concepts will require much* further practice after copying everything from the book.

I have been working through his exercises in this book and there is so much joy and fun in his work, unlike the tortured self-expression of some modern art instruction books today. This one is fun, but loaded with practical information on how to upgrade your feeble attempts to draw what want to illustrate your ideas.

The explanations are clear and easy to follow and can greatly improve someone's ability to draw people in a very short period of time. Aside from that, the content in this book is still 5 stars and the book's main focus is on having fun, which should be the reason you started drawing to begin with. Saya perhati Andrew Loomis gemar memakai pensel yang mungkin 6B hingga ke 8B berdasarkan kehitaman lakarannya.
