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.

I want this!
