"...the ideas are what matter most" Doug Chiang
I was wondering if anybody here knew a good reference book about insects, I'm not aware of any myself even though I would love to study drawing them.
I would like to mention Jack Hamm's "Drawing Scenery: Landscapes and Seascapes".
I didn't find the title grabbing at all but after JeffX repeated mentions of it, I bought it and am currently working my way through it.
For a beginner I think this is awesome indeed.
The entire book is based on pencil as a medium and only few pages deal with types of paper- no fancy schmancy about tools, you can just start working with sheet and paper.
I especially recommend visiting http://www.wikipaintings.org/ while reading the book, because certain tasks in the book are to look at master paintings and try to find the point of entry and follow-through in the composition.
In comparison to various books on landscapes and composition, I found this the most straight-forward and best suited for a beginner.
obrigado for the links.
I have a lot of books about film-making, this is also kind of art. I plan to buying some good drawing book.
What about ''Discovering Oil Painting'' by George Cherepov? http://www.google.gr/imgres?q=cherep...,r:13,s:0,i:90
Has anyone ever seen what's inside?

Wich of these ones is the best for a starter? I want to learn figure drawing, but i don't understand how bridgman works..
For information on traditional painting and working the materials used, I'm using The Artist's Handbook by Ray Smith and I'm blown away by how much information there is on mediums like Gouache, watercolour, oils, acrylics, pastels, etc. I'm looking at the first edition and I know that older books generally tend to be written more thoroughly so I don't know how much they've changed in the third edition, but definitely worth a look if you're looking at molecular mediums.
Just picked up Ken Hultgren's book online. For under $5, it was a no brainier. Covers: Horses, Deer, Cats, Cows, Bulls, Giraffes, Camels, Gorillas, Pigs, Dogs, Foxes, Kangaroos, Rabbits, Squirrels, Elephants, and Bears. Ken breaks the animals down to simple forms and builds them up.
Godly thread. Tracking this.
