A small collection of resources we highly recommend for any artist of any level.
SKETCHING: THE BASICS
This book by Koos Eissen and Roselien Steur is an absolute must-have!
DRAWING THE HEAD AND HANDS
This book by Andrew Loomis is fantastic for sharpening your portrait and hand drawing skills.
RENDERING IN PEN AND INK
This book by Arthur L. Guptill is one of my all-time favourites. Its in-depth look into rendering with line will vastly improve your understanding of form and how to convey depth using light and shadow.
FRAMED PERSPECTIVE VOL. 2
This series by Marcos Mateu-Mestre is worth its weight in gold. Both volume 1 and 2 are a valuable read. I just prefer volume 2 for its emphasis on characters.
One of my all-time favourite online schools. It’s a bit more pricey than some other alternatives, but definitely worth your time.
