This was my main souvenir from a recent trip to NY. Never hurts to ask the guy behind the counter.
When I left they still had another copy of "Three-Dimensional Drawing" (which is the second edition-revision of the same text) w/o jacket for $75 at Strand. In the revised text the original 'gallery of drawings' was dropped in favor of additional details and info on perspective, but since this book has it, I thought I'd snap off a couple quick shots in case they're hard to find elsewhere.

The mojo man.
His stuff will remain valuable for yonks to come. He dedicated his books to the purpose of the accumulation and sharing of knowledge. I think he saw the internet coming.
I actually got that from Mr Charles Bernard, combine that with a close study on the loomis drawing and Mr Frazetta's stuff and you will notice that good tone = good color.
These where the tone guru's. Just how they got there, they might not be able to put or did not put it into words. But if you look at their works closely that relative idea comes out.
I think it's the by product of starting with ink. The strategy of learning that inking will put you through is to start with black, white, alternation and the phenominae of light and shade. From there as you add more and more tones the groundwork get's laid. I think a modern artist that tries to follow in loomis's footsteps being spoiled with digital apps and no tonal constraints etc needs to be aware of that in order to arrive or meet them. This is something loomis did not teach but he had it as a natural part of his thinking and projecting style in dealing with tonal plan's.
That is to me one of his biggest mojo's and something he really likes to show off.
how the f..k will I render this scene with just black and white?
