The illustrator Andrew Loomis is revered amongst artists for his mastery of drawing technique and his clean, realist style. His hugely influential series of art instruction books have never been bettered and Successful Drawing, the third in Titan's programme of facsimile editions, returns this classic title to print for the first time in decades.

For over 60 years Successful Drawing has provided a superb resource covering all the techniques needed to master three-dimensional drawing. From the fundamentals of proportion, placement, perspective, planes and pattern, through a detailed examination of scale and the effects and capture of light, to the mastery of conception, construction, contour, character and consistency, Successful Drawing is filled with step-by-step instruction, professional tips and beautiful illustration.

Engaging, witty, and wonderfully executed, this is a masterclass for amateur artists and professional illustrators alike.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A must have book 2. Oktober 2012
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
In the last two months I compared around 30 drawing books and this one is a true treasure.
It is a great help for me to learn to draw.
I will recommend it to my family and friends and I even consider to buy them one as a present.
This book is as convincing as the other ones from Andrew Loomis (e.g. Figure Drawing, Drawing the Head and Hands, Fun With A Pencil, ...) or from Betty Edwards The New Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain: The 1999, 3rd Edition as well as from Kimon Nicolaides The Natural Way to Draw: A Working Plan for Art Study.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good but covers a few areas only 15. Mai 2012
Von Parka - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is more advanced than the two earlier books, Figure Drawing for All It's Worth and Drawing the Head and Hands.

Compared to other books that try to cover everything, this book focuses on certain aspects of drawing.

There's a great deal of emphasis on perspective and that section is 80 pages, which is half of this 160-page hardcover. At times, it can be quite difficult to follow because there's too many things explained at the same time. The part on drawing figures on different planes and elevation is quite useful. And also the part on common perspective mistakes.

The second half of the book covers lighting. It's stuff like how light rolls of a sphere, cone and cube. The application is more on figures as with the accompanying illustrated examples. There are many useful drawing pointers to take note of.

The book doesn't cover everything, or at least topics I would expect from a drawing book. What's missing are topics such as composition, contour drawings, colours, drawing portraits (dealt in his other books) and drawing techniques like hatching, layering tones, etc. It doesn't cover drawing by eye which deals with proportion, although it is mentioned briefly which can be overlooked easily.

Ultimately, the book is on understanding the fundamentals behind drawings. There isn't any step-by-step instructions to follow along, you learn by copying what's shown.

This is an intermediate book more suited for those with some knowledge of drawing, more specifically for those looking to learning perspective and lighting. If you have the two other Loomis books mentioned above, then you can easily apply what you've learned.

If you're looking to draw something instantly, then I would recommend more elementary beginner books. For perspective, you can try Perspective Made Easy, and Keys to Drawing for drawing in general. I'll also recommend Lessons in Classical Drawing because that book is also about successful drawing.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Don't pass this one up. 15. Februar 2013
Von toku - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

In fact, don't pass up any of the Loomis books. One word of caution though, he'll give you the information you need to start with in this book, but isn't totally complete so I suggest you supplement with other authors. Here are a few of my suggestions: Edwards, Dodson, Peck, Bridgman, Richer, Hale and of course any of Loomis' suggestions. I actually began re-learning how to draw after around 16 years and "Successful Drawing" has the basic all important "key fundamentals" on drawing. So it's, in my opinion, not a bad place to start. I suggest, however, to pick up both the Edwards and maybe even the Dodson book to help you understand in more complete detail, the components, elements, including technique on good drawing. Loomis, in this book and his figure drawing book, suggests that you learn from his drawings and also to draw from life. Again if you want to be able to copy clearly and accurately what you "see", start with the Edwards book, then for technique, such as restating lines, the "Key's to Drawing" book. I have some advice on the Edwards book. I think it talks way too much about psychological theory, but if you can get past all that, you'll find gems of artistic advice.

So again, I wouldn't pass up any of the Loomis books. If nothing else, he has everything you need in art education and can guide you in the right direction for further study. Read carefully what he has to say, study his illustrations thoroughly, apply the knowledge, practice and draw all the time. As for my suggestions, for all other authors to study from, I found them by researching drawing forums. This is your best bet if you still have any kind of trouble. One of the best one's I've found, if not the best, is called CG Society, google it and find tons of information in their general techniques forum section.

By the way, there is a certain order that you should keep in mind when studying the Loomis books. Things will make a lot more sense, with some minor overlap.

Here's the suggested order:

Fun with a Pencil
Successful Drawing / Figure Drawing For All It's Worth / Drawing the Heads and Hands
Creative Illustration
The Painter's Eye

5.0 von 5 Sternen Finally republished the books of Loomis 24. Mai 2012
Von Antlab - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The books by Andrew Loomis are legendary in the environment of students and lovers of drawing and illustration. For many years they were only available online in PDF format, with the usual copyright issues.
Now, finally, Titan Books has decided to republish them. I just received Successful Drawing, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to learn or improve the basics of drawing, in particular perspective, light and shadows.
I hope that Titan Books get good sales and continues with the publication of the other Loomis titles, in particular Fun With A Pencil.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Foundational Artistic Knowledge 11. Mai 2012
Von M - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Successful Drawing is one of the most brilliantly created books on artistic perspective and now it is back in print. This author and publisher have almost single-handedly kept foundational artistic knowledge alive and every artist should have this book in their library. The clarity of the diagrams and corresponding explanations are easy to understand. This should be a textbook for all art schools.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Essential 28. Juni 2012
Von Jcolon - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I hunted this book down for years and I am beyond pleased that it is back in print. Loomis' work are renowned for good reason, and this book in particular illuminates one of the more difficult subjects in drawing. It is a more technical manual,but it is still presented in Loomis' casual and easy to understand style. It is certainly for intermediate artists though, one needs only the very basics of perspective to make use of this book though. Loomis' Figure Drawing for all it's Worth sets a good foundation, so does Pespective Made Easy, a book that Loomis' recommends that is still in print to this day. Overall, this is a highly valued and amazing book on perspective.
