Wondering if any Super Pose books have been fully uploaded. And where can you obtain stuff from schoolism? Which archive?
SUPER POSE Books has never been scanned as a whole and uploaded in the murrican side of the internet.
And I also can't read chinese so the whole bibliography of SP books are probably on baidu already
any pf this books would be helpful. thanks <3
(Re post from the #6 thread because I'm dumb and don't pay attention)
Any good books/scans that delve into the reilley method? I have the scan of "Imagine FX how to draw anatomy" but they only go briefly into it and so far that's the only one I have found that even partially addresses that method of construction.
>The Frank Reilly School of Art
>The Artist's Atelier: Reference guide to Structural Concepts and Principles
>Mastering the Craft of Painting
>Values for Pictures Worth a Thousand Words
Not ALL of them, but any would be appreciated, especially reilly and Mastering the Craft of Painting. Also have a scribd account so I can hunt there for a book if someone needs it.
so urh, how do you guys use these things properly? do you have a sketchbook open in one hand whilst you read the book, or do you guys just read the whole thing then go off and do your thing?
A mix of both. Some concepts you can read up on without immediately drawing, some are better to put into practice immediately. You don't always have to draw simultaneously, you can also read and then review major key points through drawing like assignments. Use drawing books as textbooks, don't hesitate to experiment and do your own thing but come back to the reading material and make sure to check your work.
Requesting The art of Destiny pls. it's silly how there's The art of fallout but no destiny yet. Am i just bad at searching?

I have ideas on a few books I'm going to buy, but I want your recs too. If you don't mind, /ic/
Anyone got Bird Anatomy For Artists? Is it good stuff or nah?
It seems it's available in several Australian libraries
Any ausfags here kind enough to snap a pic of the table of contents and post it?
Merry Christmas to you and everyone as well!
I do have a physical copy of it. Honestly I'm surprised no one saw my previous posts about it.
Try checking this one
My personal recommendations (well VERY few because I haven't read many stuff about anatomy)
>Classic Human Anatomy: The Artist's Guide to Form, Function, and Movement by Valerie Winslow
>Human Anatomy for Artists: The Elements of Form by Elliot Goldfinger
^ Bit textbook-ish.
>Michael Hampton Figure Drawing
Or just check anatomy books available online and skim through them because we all have different preferences. Some like technical shit while others like simplified shit. Different tastes.
Well whatever suits your style in taking notes. There are different ways to do, bro.
A.) Write down what you understand from what you read then draw.. then go back to read it then draw, interact w/ it.
B.) Skim through the book, then reread the book thoroughly then read the book for 3rd time then that's when you do some exercises. Though take your time in understanding, remember that you memorize something doesn't mean you immediately get the hang of it. It takes time to understand it fully so always interact with the books.
C.) Or mix those styles up so do experiment to find your style! Don't stick to the rules too much or what I said. Like others said, don't be afraid to experiment. Remember, learning is much more fun than doing.
It's like doing research except you gotta do practical shit to understand shit.
One more tip:
Don't hoard too much artbooks. PDFs online are for checking purposes to see if it's worth buying.
If it becomes your fav shit, then you buy the physical copy so it's much easier to look up. Or if bigass physical shit ain't your style, then its cool cos you have diff preference.
What would be a good film concept art book?
Something with a lot of pencil/pen/marker process work. Digital is fine, but I'm tired of seeing a bunch of finished pieces.
I'm looking through Starwars Art Books and everything in those books is right up my alley. Anyone know of anything else like this? SciFi, Fantasy, Medieval, Modern, whatever works.
i plan to create art folder soon but im not sure if i can do it
meanwhile for lazy asses
dropping the link (from op's post)
bro, I already put the link for your request
>bro, I already put the link for your request
Where? In the last thread? You (I think, or another anon) helped me for that other book I wanted but I don't remember anyone linking "Drawing and cartooning for laughs" by Jack Hamm.
In the mega library I can only find "Drawing the Head and Figure" and "Cartooning the Head and Figure", by Jack Hamm that is.
I'm sorry if I'm misunderstanding something.
I already took a first stab at mirroring VK to get those resources extricated from that godforsaken threading, but it's an unholy clusterfuck of mixed editions in every language under the sun.
Lots of series can only be pieced together half in japanese + half in english, or 1/3 japanese + 1/3 english + 1/3 russian, or the previous except for 1 outlier book in german...
Also my scraper ran amok and escaped the directory level it was on (i.e. started trying to download all of VK, and got a good ways there before I killed it with fire).
I'll fix the problem and take on dealing with that whole bidnis, but only if imma know anyone's gonna give a shit.
Will you guys actually use less-than-perfect scans of less-than-young-and-nubile-texts in less-than-brilliantly-comprehensible mixed foreign language editions?
Comin your way whenever this goddamn upload finishes.
In your faaavorite ebook format, the 43MB djvu!
there it is:
http://www.mediafire dot justlikemymixtape
Gonna haveta be more specific than that, since that name refers to more than one large-ass download and people always mislabel both (all?) of them.
New to the board, unfamiliar with its particular linking likes/dislikes. Better to err on the side of caution to keep posts sticking around.
That and trivially breaking URLs leads DMCA-bots astray without doing much / if anything to impair humans tryna get their pirate on.
Requesting the colored pencil painting bible. Or something like it.
Also this or any guide on drawing.painting skin tones.

Thank you very much, anon! Though, what happened to the color?
>Oh it was in one of my posts where I linked Jack Hamm to wrong anon and I thought you would notice
Oh I hadn't sorry, but thanks for the help I appreciate it.
>Will you guys actually use less-than-perfect scans of less-than-young-and-nubile-texts in less-than-brilliantly-comprehensible mixed foreign language editions?
There are so many books, it's kinda massive. I had planned to download all of them but gave up after a dozen of pages. I think some of us would definitely be interested in some sort of backup for all of these though, we never know when it'll all go down.
For a start I think it'd be a good idea to put the vk link in the OP for the next threads to make it available to more people.
>There is no such thing as "leaning to paint skin tones", simply learn about color and light and you will know how to render everything.
Learning how to paint skin tones is part of the journey of learning about how color and light interacts with you and the people around you.
Requesting the Original Ghost in Shell art book from 95 movie.
"Ghost in the Shell Original Collection"
I had to manually contact the book seller to get this book in order to ship it to my area (live in the US). I'll need to look up some info on the best scanner to do this on. Will take sometime till I upload it.
Anyone got borenstein's book "Figure Drawing Boot Camp"?
Here ya' go.
Took a few random pages.
Is there any book with military uniforms pictures?
Osprey is good. I have this on my bookshelf and I like it a lot as well.
Anyone have a download link to this or something?
And/or this. Sorry for asking too much, but I think Victorian Goods and Merchandise is a easy book to find but the tpb link is dead. I tried kickass and obviously google too.
>mfw this thread is still useless
Nothing new since Watts workbooks and KJG artbooks? Really?
No one provide anything here. It's just bunch of books from some "vk" public. Everything here you can find in google and vk.
>kim jung gi 2011 and 2013 sketchbooks on mega
>file no longer exist
>go to that vk page
>scroll so all posts are visible
>ctrl + f that shit
>can't find it no matter how i search
Does anyone have a link or know when i can find em?
also previous art book threads had way better OP's iirc, waddup with this one??
it seems a bit... scarce...
How about you contribute something then?
The OP is a giant and useful resource, it's not everyone else's fault you downloaded and hoarded them all or ignored them then came here to bitch that nobody immediately delivered whatever you want.
Quick question is this book any good at teaching facial expressions or should I just stick to "artist complete guide to facial expression"?
just scroll down in this pastebin
when did you see it? i might try to dig some old posts up
Anon you forgot to post the other 2 links of kim jung gi art folder.
You get a shit ton of references, in various poses, with some construction lines. Usually there's also a ref sheet that gives you their proportions in profile as well so you don't have to eyeball it.
<-- Basically, 100-200~ pages of this etc. as reference material
OK bros, im requesting for:
Big Bad World of Concept Art for Video Games: An Insider's Guide for Students
Does anyone have it or.. yeah just wanted to put it out here. Thanks in advance and I totally appreciate if someone being kind enough to share it cos I plan to buy that shit one day
depends on your preference for the way of approaching those elements....
Like FOR example,
Like How To Render - technical af but helpful shit
Color and Light - casual but focusing more on painting shit, so it's like straightforward tho occasionally gives technical info but less than How to Render
So it's totally up to you man, try checking those books out and see if it suits you. Some people learn differently.
Alternatively, the best way to learn rendering is to watch Youtube vids or get some vids from cg and do life studies shit on real life
thanks, stay cool
it has lots of good points.
>you get to see their workflow/creative processes. so you know how they approach the subject and bg, etc etc. helps to know how they created shit (inspirations and refs to create the world, char, backstories and shit) creative thinking solutions on those things
>you get alot of refs : style in lines and color, environment, character (diff poses and angles). also using the refs by dissecting their style
^ never ever copy their style EXACTLY because or else you might have no taste/substance in your personalized style just study how they did it and shit and mix your inspirations into your own style.
I'd suggest you check Skillful Huntsman, that's how they did. Behind the Pixels is good too. Big Bad World for concept art book seems promising..
Also, it's good ol' guide to create concept arts or studies to create final pieces.
it's on cgpeers tho wait for it to be back soon
Would anyone happen to have the "Groundworks of Evangelion" artbooks? They look amazing.
anyone got anything with shigeto komaya's works?
I have Big Bad World but can't scan it at the moment. It's actually not that good. It shows what the job is about and it focuses a bit too much into what school to choose and how to develop a physical porfolio, which won't be of much use if you want to self-learn and develop an internet-based professional persona.
Anyone have this book on hand. Or "Figure Drawing Boot Camp" by Sheldon Borenstein?
thanks for your review, bro! I see hmm, that's first critical review I read because in amazon it has mostly good reviews.
Tho the physical portfolio part sounds cool but i just realized now that i can always pick up some tips from internet and compile shit except it's gonna be long searchin'.
if you can't scan or not in mood to scan shit, it's cool! it's the thought that counts.
use movie screencaps or irl shit or google emotions or related to facial expressions. if you still want the book, just use it as a tool to understand not to rely too much on it.
Akemi Takada has a How To Draw book? Anymore like pic related?
How necessary is it to read books on drawing/painting/anatomy/composition? I've probably read like 15 at least, you think there's diminishing returns at this point where the books are just reiterating the same information?
After a certain point they aren't that necessary anymore because you've internalized the information. At that point you progress by studying from life, masters, and working on your own personal choices and style.
At that point you can probably discern what you need to learn and should just consult books on an as-needed basis or if they're by an artist you like.
Keeping a good anatomy book near at hand is never a bad idea, but yeah there's going to be overlap in every book on the same subject.
I thought "Figure Drawing Boot Camp" by Sheldon Borenstein would be an easier find. Surprised his other book is up for grabs, I thought the other one would be a lot more difficult to locate.
is this what you were looking for? if not, i know for sure peter han's dynamic sketching i on cgpeers if you have an account. i cant give you a link because im currently banned
Requesting The Art of Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens, please!! Can't find it anywhere....
Can any of you recommend a book that teaches architectural drafting similar to the pic
Architecture books will only confuse you with professional shit you won't use unless you're doing something related to architecture where measurement matters.
What you want is just a perspective book, your image is just a simple 1-point perspective with easy as fuck perspective tricks to divide everything equally and to help positioning doors/windows.
I can send you a set of professional rulers made specifically for construction, architectural design and technical drawings. They were made with big accuracy in custom-made injection molds crafted by most skilled polish engineers.
If you are interested, I can sell you those as a special offer for 100$ + shipping. Payment upfront.
Anyone know where I can find a copy of howard schatz' book ? it's fucking beautiful, and has better photographs than some anatomy references books.
This appears to be working.
I also found painting with light and color course on shitty file hosting site, I'll make a torrent in case I eventually download it
Anyone knows where i can find "Art of OOO" adventure time artbook? Pretty please.
just dont reply with "gtfo to tumblr, fag". Its 300 page detailed artbook about one of most known drawn-by-hands things in the world right now, must be great read for animators and chara-designers.
Any good books on balancing shapes to create pleasing designs? Characters preferred, but anything is helpful.
This is awesome! Bless you! So... Which books should I start reading?
Made a torrent with schoolism "Painting with light and color" course, check it out:
Anyone have some Ghibli or Hayao Miyazaki stuff?
I can never seem to find anything except sketchy russian sites searching for artbooks
Sorry I was just randomly google searching which doesn't tend to work very well. Didn't even know what VK was.
Looking through VK it looks like there's some pretty awesome stuff.
Sorry for being retarded, cheers m8
If you're trying to do comic art--like that image right there, you're better off with a book written for comics. I recommend 'Vanishing Point' by Jason Cheeseman-Meyer (yes thats a real name).
It's probably worth noting, that image was probably with sketchup or an image dropped into manga/clip studio and then inked on top. Doesn't mean you shouldn't learn perspective though.
Any chance of getting Graphic L.A. by Robh Ruppel? I want to try his process. There's a short explanation by himself in Robertson's How to Render but the main book seems to go deeper.
requesting masters of anatomy book
I don't have a cgpeers account.
I actually went and bought the damn pdf from Woodward's website, but it's been like 12 hours and I have yet to receive an email with the download link. Fucking annoying.
though i'll remove it cos yeah it should be downloaded in cg, y'know for seeders.
idk, just out of respect thing.
note: the cgpeers registration is open tomorrow i think
The patreon videos are on cgpeers. A few (3,10,13 and the organic dynamic one) are on public trackers as well, but be warned that the speed is shit. Just search for "foundation patreon"
No scans but do own the book. Pretty simple, doesn't really have much in like specific exercises but more about teaching yourself without being vague as shit. More or less good as something to learn solely from, but is a fantastic companion piece while learning fundamentals elsewhere.
Amazon took forever though, even with Prime delivery.
So I've been trying to learn to render my drawings and have recently ordered Scott Robertson's book on rendering. But I now need a good book on learning to render the figure, all I have on hand is acrylic paint but (Photoshop is also an option)
Anyways is Howard forsbergs book on figure painting iv heard some good things about it but i would like to know if it is actually any good or if would I be wasting my the with it.
Bro, are you even an artist?
I want to read these books (and mostly look at the art) for fun.
You know how an artist gets better? By drawing what they like, by wanting to become better, and by downloading these books, we feed our brain fuel that feeds our love for drawing, whatever it is.
I think it was asked here before, but did anyone ever upload the "Art of Kill la Kill vol 2"?
Does someone have a link to Harold Speed's book Oil Painting Techniques and Materials which have been widely discussed in James Gurney's blog?
Does Anyone know where I can get the scans for this?
Anyone know where I can get the scans for this book and the others in this series?
