I had originally wanted to wait until I had more pages. My intention was to stop at a certain point that would make sense with the narrative. But then I realized I have to throw some colors on these which takes a bit longer. Since I'm working I figure I'd just do smaller, incremental uploads for those who might be interested. 

Anyways, I hope you guys dig it!

You've probably been asked so many times, that you're sick of it, but I'm an aspiring artist, and I was wondering if you had any recommendations on books, dvds, courses, etc...? I think your style is amazing, it reminds me of 40s 50s illustration work. thanks :)

Hey, sorry it took me a while to get back with you. 

Thanks, I appreciate it! I don't mind at all giving recommendations. 

There's some really good ones though when it comes to perspective and anatomy. The Anatomy ones I reference the most are Figure Drawing, Design and Invention by Michael Hampton, Dynamic Figure Drawing and Drawing the Human Head by Burne Hogarth. Also there's Drawing Comics the Marvel Way and a How to Draw Heroic Anatomy which was put out by Wizards. For perspective I really like Vanishing Point by Jason Cheeseman-Meyer and Framed Perspective vol. 1 and 2 by Marcos Mateu-Mestre. Those are all pretty simple and straight forward books good for anyone of any skill level. 

The books I don't have, but I found plenty of scans, are anything from Andrew Loomis. That dude basically laid the groundwork of modern figure illustration and comic art back in the 30's or something. You can find a lot of the pages of his head sketches or perspective or whatever on Pinterest. Pinterest is an amazing resource for finding tutorials. 

On YouTube How to Draw Comics. Net is really good. He breaks down some important techniques. K Michael Russell is a great channel to watch for digital coloring. 

But the best thing you can do is draw from life and work a project to it's finish even if it seems too complex or difficult. Once you get over that hump and you realize that you can do something you didn't think you can do your art will evolve. 

And if you can, take a life drawing class at a community college or something. I spent so many hours drawing gross naked people and it's definitely helped me.
