Went to the Local university library and pleasantly discovered this gem.
it features all of Norman Rockwell's illustrations for the Saturday evening post from the years 1928 to 1943.
All works recieve a neat little page dedicated to the history of the piece, where every piece is shown in full colour and at quite an impressive size
(26cm X 34cm)

For those interested in inking your comics, here are some books I've gotten over time that covers the topic.
DC Comics Guide to Inking Comics
This is one of many books published by DC Comics in regards to making comics. This one specifically goes into inking, and shows examples of inked works and how they are applied in its titles. Includes art examples from Frank Miller and Jack Kirby, among others. Has at least one walkthrough of the inking process for a page.
The Art of Comic-Book Inking
This one is from Dark Horse, and also covers inking, but spends a bit more time explaining how inking is applied, with both more correct and incorrect approaches. What I like most is how it will have different versions of the same basic drawing so you can see how inking affects the appearance. Another element I enjoy is the pages of examples of different inkers inking the same page. It makes it very apparent how much of an impact inking can have on a piece, and how much an inker has to fill in sometimes. The last plus are the Bristol pull-outs for you practice on. Unfortunately, it looks like this may out of print, so you'll have to look around.
Pen & Ink: The Manga Start-up Guide
This book differs from the others in two ways. First, the approach is from manga and not American comics. The terms and approaches reflect the source audience, Japan, and the kinds of tools available. Second, unlike the previous two books who briefly touch on using the nib pen, they have some preference for the brush, Pen & Ink pretty much covers using the nib pen. It does go into general manga/comic making elements, such as coming up with a plot and drawing it, but the real strength is its focus on nib pen inking, clarifying the different kinds of nibs available, and providing exercises to get more comfortable with inking with nibs.

I would love to check out most of these books, but the sad part is, is that at the present, i'm so broke it hurts. I have found loomis PDFs because people in america want to keep the books in print and in mind, but what is advised for the "starving artist wannabe"?
are their any freer options to these books? any alternatives at little to no price?
I'm learning on a very strict budget (see the moth flying out of my wallet).
Fudge this AWESOME place!!!
My SKETCHBOOK: please critique! i can take it!

Can anyone specify some books on Color Theory and if possible books or articles which talk about the effect or impact of color on the human mind? Also, something on Digital Painting?
Hawthorne is awesome! Looking forward to buy it
Don't bother looking at my sketchbook. I haven't updated that thing in years. :/
