    I got a bunch of books recently and I saw Egets da vinci book which is one that I also got here are some of the others.















    I got all these except for the mini Da Vinci book at the half price books store for like 5-10$ a piece. I have only read the da vinci ones including the one Egets posted and the Michealngelo one.

    Just picked up this up, the art quality is very good, though not outstanding with the exception of a couple artists featured in the book. However the designs of the armors are incredibly elaborate.

    GW's artwork has progressed a long way since 1997.

    Man, I'm not sure I'd have the patience to do something like that, thanks for posting it Hito.

    What an awesome thread! Of course I get in on stuff late as always, in this instance it's good. There's a ton of stuff I didn't know about, and a bunch of stuff posted that I own also.

    This was invaluable to me at an early age in developing figure drawing skills:


    Here's a few more I have too:

    Now I'm off to do some shopping for more books!

    This book isn't out yet, but since they're not being sold in stores, I thought I'd give people heads up on a couple of these.

    The first one is the Art of Oddworld book for their 10 year anniversary, which you can pre-order online, and see thumbnails of all the pages...


    http://www.ballisticpublishing.com/oddworldinhabitants/

    The second is by a person I watch on Deviantart, and I think I ought to put a link in for them, because they're really amazing at making monsters... reminds me of Tim Burton's style a lot.

    Abe's Oddysee was published in 1997, but I guess the company actually started in 94.

    Don't know if I've mentioned this one before but I was mentioning it in my sketchbook so I thought I'd bring it up here to. Great stuff.

    Here is a book I just got off of amazon still waiting for it in the mail. Sounds like it might be a good one it got all 5 star ratings.


    Bojee or anyone know of some books on animals that deal with the anatomy of animals, most seem to deal with structure and not bones and muscles. I have the Jack Hamm one, but it doesn't seem to go that indepth about anatomy. Any suggestions?

    Speak of the devil! I just metioned this to someone on another thread. It has a lot in common with Peck's human anatomy book in terms of style.

    Looks like you got it covered but I just saw the one you got on order and it looks pretty good supposed to be a standard for animators.

    I got that book last week bojee it's great. It's more of graphic design and some stuff that looks like paper cutouts and pasted together. If you got the other art of pixar books then you'll probably like that one.

    like I mentioned in my thread about the Iain McGaig site being started that this book by Terryl Whitlatch called Katurran Odyssey finally came out. I got it and it's got some amazing art.



    and after those other animal books were mentioned I think this book is a great source for animal anatomy too. I got that book I mentioned and you're right bojee it's more geared to animators, it's a pretty good book. Hopefully I can get those other books on animal anatomy mentioned I really want to start learning as much as I can on anatmoy animal and human.

    also Bojee I see you're from Seattle? I live in Tukwilla.

    Yep I'm the same dude. I'll have to reread the thread to see where and when you guys are doing it. Plus I have to pull myself away for San Andreas...I Just beat it that's why I'm on the net now. Is there a model or like just hanging out type thing? I see there was a pizza party or something..I love pizza! I go to the Daniel smith figure drawing on monday and wednesdays so not sure if it's on the same night or not. Is the info still in the Washington thread or has it moved?

    I am quite surprised that with all the great suggestions that have already been made, that my 3 suggestions weren't mentioned but these books are definately worth a look:

    The 1st is "The Drawings of Heinrich Kley", published by Dover Books (isbn# 0486200248). This is not an instruction book but rather a collection of very well done and quirky pen & ink drawings. Good for ideas and inspiration. The drawing to the right of the cover is one of my favorites:



    Next is "An Approach to Figure Painting for the Beginner" by Howard K. Forsberg, published by North Light Books (isbn# 0891340238). This may be out of print. What connected with me was his approach to figure construction:



    Finally there is "Figure Drawing Without a Model" by Ron Tiner, published by David & Charles, (isbn# 0715306464). The title is deceptive as he recommends working from a model to familiarize yourself with the human figure but then gives you guidelines for reconstructing a figure in your drawings when a model isn't available:

    figure2- Great selections, actually heinrich keys book was mentioned earlier but definitely worth mentioning again. Have you seen the second one?? I don't think they've republished it yet.The other 2 look good too, especially the second one. Thanks a lot for the suggestions.

    I own the 2nd book from when it was originally published. The title is "More Drawings by Heinrich Kley." The isbn # is 0486200418. If you do a search you might be able to find a few copies still being sold.

    As a matter of fact... http://isbn.nu/0486200418

    okay cool Bojee I will have to look into it more, sunday sounds like the only day I could probably go.

    These have already been mentioned elsewhere on the site, but I thought they should be posted again. I just got...

    the Art of Halo


    and Spectrum 11 just came out and I got that.



    The Art in Halo is great, it's got a lot of art and a lot or renders. If you post on these boards and are a fan of Halo...well then it's a must have.

    Spectrum 11 I'm guessing most people here know what it's like...but is now bigger.
