    Also, I don't know if anyone has noted this or not but ImagineFX is a great magazine for digital artists with all sorts of tutorials in each issue. Problem: IT IS EXPENSIVE.

    Solution: their tutorials are available for free on their website: http://www.imaginefx.com/-2287754330...Workshops.html

    I think some would even be useful for traditional painters.

    I found some good book that would be useful for character artists.

    "The Art of Pantomime" by Charles Aubert - "This book should interest films actors, directors, and scenario writers ... besides several chapters on the possibilities of silent drama it contains what is probably our largest and most accurate collection of drawings illustrating emotional attitudes as portrayed by facial expressions and bodily postures."

    The download here - http://www.mondobeyondo.com/projects/art_of_pantomime/

    I think I've not seen this yet. I'm not recommending it, I've just found it at the archive.org, so I decided to add to this great thread.

    Human anatomy for art students; (1920)
    Author: Fripp, Alfred Downing, Sir, b. 1865; Thompson, Ralph (and Innes Frip, the actual illustrator, uncredited on the site - the other guys are a surgeon and a "demonstrator of anatomy", which should be some sort of instructor at medical schools, I guess)

    http://www.archive.org/details/humananatomyfora00frip

    Maybe it's just my PC, but the PDF version was unbearably slow. The DJVU was fine, though, and half of the file size. Much more text than illustrations. May worth the reading though, perhaps text descriptions allow for some "a-has" that we wouldn't have by just looking at the picture.



    If the text is unreadable in some part, there's another version which seems to be better in this regard, but oddly enough, had most of the illustrations removed.

    This may have been answered already. If so, im sorry for asking again.

    Which are the 5-10 books that every artist should own? I would like some in different areas.

    Thanks!

    hey purb, thanks for checking out my SB! warms my heart!

    Im interested in learning the basics with a pencil, and then do alot of digital work.
    Or, thats how I feel now anyway. Could change, haha.
    But i think id like one or a few on anatomy, one on composition, shading, color theory, perspective and so on.

    Thanks for the tips you posted in my SB. Ive got some questions, so check em out later if you have time, please.

    Ive been in Kyoto for almost 2 years now.
    以上の文章は日本語でも書けるかなッ?! よろしく〜 (:

    Krel, quite a few of the classics are listed in ipowers post, directly above yours.

    Can't go far wrong with anything on that link.

    If you're willing to spend some cash Noah B. compiled a good list of other possibilities in this thread.

    That Gottfried Bammes: Der Nackte Mensch

    Even if you can't read a word of German? the diagrams in there speaks louder than words.

    Found an English translation on one of Gottfried Bammes books and ordered it.
    The books are lesson based and it's "slowed down" but the long term aims and goals are, well you can see where it's going to. I have not seen any books that can tell so much just at a galnce or maybe it's just what I have been waiting for. The new book has less pages than the book above but I think after getting the idea from the english book I'd be able to figure out what the other one was doing. Hehehehe!!!

    Sad news everyone - it seems that all of the books on archive.org later than 1923 have suddenly become unavailable for download. So for example Bridgman's The Human Machine (1939) is gone, but Constructive Anatomy (1920) is still there.

    The good news is that the range of pre-1923 art books on archive.org and googlebooks has kept on growing ever since my original post, so there's still plenty of timeless art goodness to be found.

    If anyone missed out on The Human Machine it's still available (for now), along with a great selection of older texts, at Matthew Kinsey's Classical Workshop:

    http://classicalworkshop.com/?page_id=179

    Edit: NEW LINK (thanks Nutella!): http://matthewkinsey.com/reference-library-3/
