I have noticed there seems to be plenty of resources and advice on ConceptArt about figure drawing which is great. It seems to be universal that Loomis, Bridgeman and a few others are the best resources to learn figure drawing. So I know how to direct myself when learning this.
However I also want to learn how to create environments and props as well but the methods to do so are not as clear. What are the best resources (books etc) to teach myself to create environments? Any artists who specialise in environment and props, what advice do you suggest for someone starting to learn this area of concept art?
I realise I need solid knowledge of perspective, composition and should draw from life. So I am looking for more specific advice.
