Sorry for the bombardement of posts. I have a lot of catching up to do here in the beginning. :)
Recently I've been reading some of Andrew Loomis' books on drawing and painting, and I find they are very helpful for upcoming artists, illustrators and the like (also fun for hobbyists).
Since they apparently don't get printed anymore, here's a link to a site where you can download each and every book: Loomis
Grateful thanks to the guy behind it!
