Supplementary #1 (Loomis: Front View): Solving Problems
Hello! This is the first product of my Supplementary series where I do my
best to research and address certain issues I have found with different art
instructional/educational methods. I then post my conclusions and findings
in this series to hopefully help others who are having the same issues
resolve them and move on from them. For context, I personally, started
drawing with the book Drawing on The Right Side of The Brain and the Loomis
books, years and years ago in Secondary School. My start in art and
the subsequent journey is arguably not too natural and guided by
instructional books, and I have read a lot of them and struggled with them
and grew with them.
My initial article on Loomis, "The Uninformed Problem of The Loomis
Method", where I talked about one of the method's problems (the seemingly
mathematical approach to the ideal proportions and the sudden nonmathematical
approach to finding the sides of the cranium), is the most
viewed article on my website. If you google "Loomis Problem" or
"Loomis Method Problem", it is also the first result on Google, hence the
traffic to it. It is responsible for 99% of the views my website gets.
I believe that the viewership, whichwas all purely from Google search
terms leading to that article, and even the comment I had on the article
asking me about alternatives to themethod or solutions warrant further
researching and the creation of the Supplementary series to help people.
