    Books to buy

    I was wondering what kind of drawing books would people recomend getting. I was told that Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain is a good one to get, but all the reviews for it seem to say it is really basic stuff. I would consider my drawing skills alright, the basics always need work, but i have been drawing for years and heavily for the past year and have improved alot.

    So what kind of general drawing books would you guys recomend, any subject would be appriciated, but preferably something about human anatomy.

    thanks!

    Also Buy the Mucha Sketchbooks... There are three of them and you can actually pick them up at Barnes and Knobles. They're are not instructional but, they are a great source of damn good drawing to be analyzed...
