Not really expecting much comment on these, but anything is welcome. My lines are improving as I get a bit more practice with the pen, although I still have a bit of problem thinking of where some of the lines should end when drawing boxes, so I overshoot sometimes. That's probably just a matter of experience, and the 250 box challenge should take care of that in the end.

Going to need to revisit the Rotated Boxes exercise after I get the challenge done, at least for my own satisfaction. I drew it much too small, and I'm pretty sure I added an extra box at the lower left that shouldn't be there. But that won't be for a while.

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.
