I hope to soon be able to also do this link myself! Maybe from lesson 3 onwards, the stuff starts being less abstract (not that I'm complaining, I'm all on for abstraction... maybe even too much) and begins to be easier to apply.

Thinking to myself, maybe the problem I am having is that it is easier for me to draw the boxes than to draw any other stuff that I want...

Yes well everything you want to draw is probably more complex than a box, but don't worry it will come with the constructions and simplifications method, baby steps to giant strides!

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.
