drawing lesson by Doug Compton



Doug Compton is a cartoonist and takes the time to teach lessons on how to draw cartoons according to and the way he is. You can visit his website, I think the way he explains and speaks his language is very interesting straightforward and right on target, he is not too concerned with the precision of a character to be built but he focuses on the essence of the character itself . It seems that Doug is drawing character lessons not for the reader following what he does but developing what the reader can do.

How to Draw Comic by John Byrne



This book is very interesting because we are invited to learn to make comics with comic story style so that we can digest the contents of the lesson. This 32-page comic is so complete that John Byrne presents stage-by-step comic production processes and what a comic artist needs, drawing comic anatomy, story telling, and so on.

I think this book is worth reading for anyone who wants to be a comic artist.
But to deepen the knowledge of comics, this book is still on the surface only.

scan book Arthur L. Guptill – Sketching and Rendering in Pencil


You are lucky to have seen or maybe have downloaded this book, considering this book is somewhat rare and very familiar in the faculty of arts and architects. Pencil and ink media spelled out the cheapest image media but Arthur L Guptill is not so. He describes these two media in great detail so as to explain them requires 4 to 5 pages without illustration.
It is certain that this book is intended for artists or someone who wants to improve their knowledge of drawing using ink and pencil

A portrait of the Visual arts “Meeting the Challeges of a New Era”



Actually i hesitate to give a little information about this book, but has helped a bit. He said that “Providing information about developments in the visual arts world, this book promotes the analysis of the sector, describing the characteristics of visual arts consumers (collectors and appreciators), artists, finances, and organizations.” It also tells a story of rapid, Even seismic change, systemic imbalances, and dislocation. “

If such happens then the art world is so immense, not only drawing and display.

It’s important to read and I have to read it too.

Carol Belanger Grafton – Dover – Ancient and Medieval Arms and Armor


This book is compiled with a collection of very detailed images of defense systems and weaponry in the 19th century, such as suits of armor, chain mail, swords, halberds, spears, pikes, lances, crossbows, axes, daggers, helmets, shields, knives, small arms, and a host of other implements, along with scenes of battle, siege, jousts, soldiers, horses, and more.

scan Arthur Wesley Dow “Composition”

First published in 1899, Arthur Wesley Dow’s Composition has probably influenced more Americans than any other text to think of visual form and composition in relation to artistic modernity. While Dow is known as the mentor of Georgia O’Keeffe and Max Weber, his legacy as a proponent of modern art has suffered undeserved neglect by recent artists and art historians.

In Composition Dow develops a system for teaching students to create freely constructed images on the basis of harmonic relations between lines, colors, and dark and light patterns. Greatly influenced by Japanese art, he expounds a theory of “flat” formal equilibrium as an essential component of telling pictorial creation. Generations of teachers and their public school pupils learned from Dow’s orientalism and adopted basic postimpressionist principles without even knowing the term. The reappearance of Dow’s practical, well-illustrated guide, enhanced by Joseph Masheck’s discussion of its historical ramifications, is an important event for all concerned with the visual arts and the intellectual antecedents of American modernism.
