Each year my family has a secret santa draw with a limit of £50 (about $75).
This year I was thinking of asking for books related to concept art and thought you guys would have some great suggestions.
I'm looking for books that are full of cool stuff you can spend hours looking over and get inspired from. My brother got me a concept art collection from Mass Effect a few years ago and that was really interesting.
However as someone who is quite new to the actual doing side, I won't object to books that are more 'technical' or instructive.
Of course it doesn't have to be books, if you can think of something even more useful, id love to hear it.
