5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best methods for drawing the human head.
By Andre on September 8, 2022
The loomis method is excellent for drswing the human head. This book is a classic and well worth it. Ive been drawing portraits much better since studying this book.

The photo attached was drawn with the loomis method. Im am still learning to draw.
