I feel I should mention something I try to call out when students use templates for their exercises - while there are no rules against this, I do find that the process of setting up the structure of an exercise - the table for the tables of ellipses, the guidelines for the super imposed lines, and these rows for the texture analysis exercise - it is actually a valuable use of time in that it helps us get into the mindset of approaching something in a structured manner. Having to draw those lines, employing a ruler, and all of that in a very specific manner can put us in a better frame of mind to keep the specific instructions of a given exercise in mind.

I should not have posted it. Sorry. I have no problem if you want to delete the post.

No worries, I think it's fine to leave it up. I figured it was useful in the sense that it was an opportunity to mention the point, so anyone who looks at the template will also see my commentary below.

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.
