Lately I've been finding myself with good amount of free time on the job. The labs on campus don't seem to be very active during my shifts, so I tend to have an unusual amount of Nothing to do. Two of my favorite artists are Frank Cho and Marko Djurdjevic, so I was very happy to learn that both of them just happend to teach themselves most if not all of what they know. This is a route that I'd be more than happy to take, seeing as my current Work/Class schedual allows for it. I'd just like to ask all you fine artists out there about any recommendations you might have in regards to Self-Help/Teaching. I'm well aware of Loomis' / Hogarth's Books (and I'm happily waiting for the iPad to Drop so that I may Load them up with Ebooks). Seeing as I don't have Models readily available, Books would seem to be the best alternative. I'm interested in figurative work that emphasizes anatomy and human structure, ranging from the exaggerated/Idealized form of Comic books, to the ordinary simplified style one would find in a good amount of graphic novels.
but I fear I've typed too much..
Anyone have any good ideas ?
I seem to have trouble finding guidance, so I figured "why not guide myself?"
