I'm looking for the same thing and don't have any book recommendations but I recently got Jermey Vickery's dvd on light and color (the guy works at Pixar so you know he's got to have skills). It's like a crash course and it has a quick pace, he avoids a lot of technical jargon. The color section is brief but very helpful. It goes over color temperature. And the other sections on light, bounce light, shadows are just as good.
I am working on the conceptart.org value and color theory downloads right now. The first portion is filmed already and I hope to have them all wrapped up by Friday and off to the editing team. If all goes well end of next week they will start coming out.
what?! just because i am knowing the colors does not mean i ma dumb. i am smart and knowwhat i saying. when you mix the colors you get the more colors!!!! it is simple.....
Hey, you're right! Let me try!
Perspective: when things is close theyare bigger, small fara way!!!
Antomy: first is the bones, then is the muscles, then is skin!!!!
Light and shade: when things are is light , use ligth, and dark for dark things!! and for inbetween use middles!!!!!!
IT IS SIMPLE!
