Let me recommend 3 books to anyone who wants to invest their time into drawing. This post is directed at animators, but relevant to all learning artists.

Here are your 3 meals of the day for visual reference. This is your breakfast, lunch and dinner for art improvement.

Book 1) THE ART OF PIXAR
colour scripts for all your favourite pixar movies. This is not about accurate figure drawing. This is about LIGHTING. Natural light and dramatic light. Soft light and subtle light.
You would not believe how positively a good understanding if light and shadow will advance your art. Your artistic skill will leap forward a mile if you practice these techniques.
No descriptions or heavy text in this book it’s purely visual analysis.

Book 2) FORCE
Dynamic life drawing for animators.
Bring your figure and character drawings to life in a way you’ve never imagined. This will teach you to create a sense of weight and movement, tension and relax in your figure drawings. Through learning these 4 things your figure drawings will come to life, maybe one day soon you’ll be able to apply these same principles to animal drawings also.
This book is informative but not text heavy. It is mostly completely visual and holds enough text to inform you of new techniques to consider.

Book 3) SETTING THE SCENE
backgrounds. Yes they’re scary to think about, but I can promise you they’re a lot easier to get the hang of then drawing the human figure. If you’re already drawing people try drawing backgrounds, your art will improve drastically and your skill to draw backgrounds will advance in no time at all. This book actually contains a healthy mixture of some of the most complex, and some of the most simple animation backgrounds. Backgrounds from the past (traditional art) and present (mostly Digital art). It shows visual progress pictures. It shows a lot of visuals but above all it shows some the history behind some of your favourite movie backgrounds. This book is quite text heavy, but it walks you through the process of ‘setting the scene’ in your illustrations.

Simply watching Adventure Time is often enough to make us hungry for sweets, but now we have an actual edible Candy Kingdom to tantalize our tastebuds. This mouthwateringly awesome Gingerbread Candy Kingdom was made by Redditor IHaveAFluffyCat (who actually does have an adorable fluffy cat).

The amount of time, effort, and candy that went into this work of edible art is amazing. It’s beautifully detailed from top to bottom, but we’re particularly impressed by the Gumball Guardians, whose sugar glass heads contain real gumballs.
