    Hi! Thank you for the feedback. I have been drawing more boxes experimenting with closer vanishing points and trying hard not to converge the lines in pairs. I have mixed feelings with the results. Sometimes the lines converge pretty close but not always... Not sure if this is normal or I should try a different approach... I get the concept but when I put it into practice at least one of the lines goes a little off the vanishing point.

    Thank you very much for your help

    Hi Rob! Thank you very much for your feedback. Drawing from my shoulder is something new for me and sometimes I tend to use my wrist unconsciously which makes some of my lines a bit wobbly.

    I felt quite confident with the lines and ellipses exercises. I think that my lines become wobblier in the perspective exercises as I was more worried in getting a realistic depth for the boxes. Too many things to keep in mind I suppose! I'll get used to it over time :)

    I have a question. What kind of warm up exercises do you recommend before starting to draw? and for how long?

    Many thanks Rob,

    Jaime

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.
