    What book to get???

    I just got a gift cert for amazon. I have ordered the following:

    Bridgman's figure drawing book
    Drawing on the righ side of the brain (had to try it)
    Dick Powell presentation techniques
    Draw cars draw (kinda childish but some good stuff)
    Laputa DVD

    I have like 40 bucks left to spend... what should I get. I was thinking about another figure drawing book or anatomy book.

    Any help please.

    Thanks

    I'd suggest some of Burne Hogarth's books, they're all really good...

    I should have put this in too. I have like 40.00 left to spend...

    I was thinking of a book to help with figure drawing, anatomy, and the like.

    That does look like one heck of a painting book though.

    Thumbs up

    That's easy, the Vilppu Drawing Manual. Amazon has it HERE for $39.95. Awesome book, you really should have it in your personal library!

    Thats a little more than $40

    BTW - Jason, have you seen Richard Schmids painting videos? I have Alla Prima, but I've been thinking about getting some of his videos as well. Any comments?

    I Totally agree.:nod: :yummy:

    On anamoty books, I´d recommend Bridgman´s more than Burne Hogarth's.
