The human head and hands are the most difficult elements in figure drawing, but world-class illustrator Andrew Loomis' classic primer offers the solution. Revered among artists for his mastery of figure drawing and clean, realist style, Loomis' hugely influential art instruction books have never been bettered. "Drawing the Head and Hands" is the second in Titan's programme of facsimile editions.

This has been such a helpful book - the advice on learning and living alone has been excellent (and truly an unexpected surprise), but the drawing instruction itself is finally helping me get facial features and proportions in their right places. My weird little brain has been struggling for years and Loomis' writing and examples are finally making it clear to me.
