My Big Uber-collection of the best art e-books I’ve found so far for you to download and to study!
As promised, and as long put-off, here are my favourite pdf art books, these are the best of the best I’ve found in my travels! They’re all great but each author has a specific area he’s great at:
Bridgman: really sketchy, like sometimes almost too much. Good for proportions though and seeing how things fit together.
Burne Hogarth: really stylized and so not quite 100% realistic, but he portrayed the 3D shapes really well, and if you study this and keep his drawings in mind when you draw people, your figures will have a much more realistic weight distribution.
Jack Hamm: an old fashioned guy, good for drawing faces in a realistic, old comic-book-y way. Covers lots of hard-to-draw angles of the face that others forget, too!
Eliot Goldfinger: this is really really technical almost medical anatomy-level complexness. But it breaks things down into muscle masses which are good to keep in mind if you have a difficult character to draw.
MY FAVOURITES:
Michael Hampton: THIS IS THE BEST. This one has everything, everything is colour coded, it’s fucking amazing in every way. This is like the be-all end-all of anatomy books, GET THIS.
Force, Life Drawing for animators: this one is amazing. This one teaches you how to DRAW the ENTIRE FIGURE, but not in little chunks- you need to know how to capture the flow of the body to make it not look like shit. This book teaches what separates the good artists from the MASTER artists. GET THIS. 
Vilppu Drawing Manual: This is also a great book that combines some of these two big elements of drawing. Sort of retro but everything is really amazing, this is a big one.
Victor Perard: if you’re like me you revolve around line art, not painting. This book is awesome for us people. Lots of great poses to study and learn from, teaches you how to take masses and make line art of them. Very good.
so, Go forth! Share and reblog this post for others, if needbe, it is full of win. Or just the URL, that’s cool too. Thanks everybody who waited for me to upload it all!

AMAZING.YES.THANK YOU.
