CGAA Recommended Reading: Pose Drawing SparkBook: Put More Life In Your Drawings

From Cedric Hohnstadt, illustrator:

"The Pose Drawing Sparkbook is a “super-charged” sketchbook designed to help you practice putting more life into your drawings and make them more entertaining. The 240-page sketchbook includes:

• 32 pages of instructional articles (think of them as acting lessons for your drawings)
• 100 short situations for you to sketch, carefully crafted for their acting potential (think of them as acting exercises)
• Hundreds of bonus drawing ideas in the back of the book.

It’s not a “how to draw” book. It’s more of a “how to think” book. It’s designed to help you learn to think about acting and posing as you draw your characters. For more info watch this short video or read my Kickstarter page."
