    Hi Rob!

    Thanks again for your constructive criticism.

    This first lesson was difficult for me and I was afraid of a severe revision. But your intervention was very motivating and I feel relieved.

    When you said : "All of your horizontal lines should be parallel to the horizon line and all of your verticals should be perpendicular(straight up and down in this case) to the horizon line", I had completely forgotten that part. And now that you've mentioned it, it makes perfect sense. Thank you very much.

    You're right, I really do have trouble with ellipses, I'm taking a living model course, and every time I have to draw a curved line, it’s really hard (If you have advices for that, I’m interested)

    You said in your message : "you keep practicing these in your warmups, I don't know if this will be precise in the next lesson, but I haven't really understood how this part works. Is it me, or the person who gave me a review, who chooses which warm-ups I should do?

    In any case, I'll give you a good rating for your critique. You really deserved it ;)

    I don't know if we'll meet again, but I wish you a good day and a great weekend, Rob !

    Warm regards.

The Art of Brom

The Art of Brom

Here we're getting into the subjective - Gerald Brom is one of my favourite artists (and a pretty fantastic novelist!). That said, if I recommended art books just for the beautiful images contained therein, my list of recommendations would be miles long.

The reason this book is close to my heart is because of its introduction, where Brom goes explains in detail just how he went from being an army brat to one of the most highly respected dark fantasy artists in the world today. I believe that one's work is flavoured by their life's experiences, and discovering the roots from which other artists hail can help give one perspective on their own beginnings, and perhaps their eventual destination as well.
