I've got something in common with Socrates, namely I know, that I know nothing. Therefore I like to benefit from the knowledge of others... And this leads me to the question:
Which books about art in general/drawing/painting/illustrating/freelancing are particularly valuable for you?
My TOP3 would be probably:
"Fantasy Art Workshop" by John Howe
"Drawing and Painting Fantasy Landscapes and Cityscapes" by Rob Alexander and Martin McKenna
"Painting Spectacular Light Effects in Watercolor" by Paul Jackson
On my blog I described several books which had the greatest influence on my approach to illustrating grimdreamart.blogspot.com/2015… . Maybe you'll find there something interesting for you
By the way my blog underwent a little transformation.
