    yep id buy this as a book.
    ive been unable to find something so straight-forward and simply explained.
    i guess the next step is to check out the authors and artists you've recommended

    Thanks for the renewed interest in this thread. As far as the book goes it will probably be a while, it is something Jeff Watts and I are working on in our spare time, which is not ample. We want to do it right so it will probably be a couple years. You all will be the first to know when it is nearing completion

    Hi... I'm a noob here.

    To E.M.

    Just found your tutorial online via the society of figurative artist forum... very nice tute i must say - some really good pieces of advice, I love your writing style - reminds me scott mccloud (as in "understanding/making comics" [but I'm sure you know that already]) but i have a question to ask you....

    I totally understand the general process you're refering to but I would like you to clarify one point for me...

    In chapter 1, second to last paragraph, you refer to;

    "...you should find the triangular or pyramid shape of the pose..." - fair enough... I think I do this anyway when I do life studies, but wanting you to clrify this point further... I don't see any obvious signs of it in your illustrations...

    I love your work btw - I'm a big fan. (without wanting to sound too sycophantic)

    Thanks in advance.

    Pete

    Why isn't this in the tutorials forum? CA needs to have certain threads like this one exist in both forums at once, if possible.

    Agreed. I've copied an edited version of the thread to the tutorials forum here, with a link back to this one for questions and discussion.

    I had problems downloading the PDF file, pictures aren't showing for me either.
    If you click on a link to pdf and chose 'open' browser gives you an error. Removing 'www' part from the link in my download manager solved the problem and I was able to download it. Attached it below, had to change the extension to avi to be able to do it, so then you download the file just change its extension back to pdf and it should be ok. The material is just too good. Maybe a moderator could do something about the original link

    Mihail, I just checked Eric's original link and it worked fine for me (OSX, Firefox, Acrobat Professional).

    No problem, threads like this should get periodically bumped anyway!
