    Expanding the Reference Library

    Hey everyone!

    I was wondering if some of you may be able to help me.

    I want to expand my reference library, and I want to know some good books to learn from in different topics. The books don’t need to be books like “How to Draw” blah blah. They can be a collection of pieces done by an artist, like the Frazetta books, or Darkwerks from Brom. Those types of books will do perfectly

    Just books to learn from is all.

    So. The topics of books I’m looking for are:

    1) Rendering.
    2) Light and Shadow
    3) Action (I’m thinking maybe anime may fall into this category. Simply for the action, like Adam Warren)
    4) Backgrounds

    Thanks for you help!

    P.S. The books can range from anime, to realism. Doesn’t matter. Just looking for the best
