    Probably a stupid Question

    Ok Sorry if this is exactly what the title states. But I have seen this book in the background of a few peoples photos on CA and read about it in a few threads. (To my surprise I forget what it is called).

    For the life of me I can not seem to remember the threads and finally have the money to buy it but can not remember what it is called or who it was by. All I do know is it was along the lines of "Drawing what Doesnt Exist" or something like that. The first few pages had a gent drawing a "Goblin" from a statue or manikin. A long shot I am sure but DOES ANY one even know what I am talking about?

    Sounds like Imaginative Realism by James Gurney.

    Edit: No fair Star, I've been drinking. I call for a do-over!

    It's "Imaginative Realism" by James Gurney.

    I would strongly recommend checking out Mr Gurney's other book "Color and Light" if you have the money. Both books are solid gold.
