    If you want to study dynamic figures and clothing, you might want to take a look at Burne Hogarth's books. He wouldn't be my first choice for studying figure construction - Loomis would be - but if...

    The next step is to stop thinking about things as steps. You don't leave the beginning stuff behind. Throughout your artistic career you will have to keep coming back to them so don't treat it like...

    There's nothing particularly unusual about the proportions of those figures. They're about seven heads tall, on the low end of average, which makes sense because larger heads proportional to body...

    Another thing: If you look at Phil's stuff, you'll see that, whether he's working in pencil, ink, acrylics, or digital, the line quality is pretty consistent. In other words, it's not the tools, it's...
