2022-11: Warosu is now out of maintenance. Become a Patron!
Since No one actually bothered to make it, I decided to make a tier list myselfhttps://tiermaker.com/create/art-book-tier-list-15805628Pic is my personal tier list. How good is my taste?
I havent read most of these
>>6673441>filtered by perspective made easy
>>6673432why is gurney in A and not S?
>>6673432Based perspective made easy chad
>>6673459Nta but I feel like book does more on theories than applications and is only useful for painters
>>6673459Gurney gives the frosting before the cake
i literally have only read the first past of perspective made easy
Did not read the other ones
>>6673476>only useful for paintersno shit. and portrait books are only useful for humans not animals.
>>6673432Illusion of life at C is heresy
>>6673879It's honestly more of a history book than an actual animation information book imo. All the stuff you could gain from it such the 12 principle can be found elsewhere. Plus the Disney worship is pretty lame.
>>6673978i like history books :(
>>6673432I’m glad the board has finally turned against Robertson. Definition of a /beg/ trap.
>>6673869>fun with a pencil in s tier while marvel way and preston are lower even though they MOG it>Keys to drawing in the lowest tier despite the fact that it's basically right side with less bloat>force drawing being on the same tier as vilppu and higher than Hampton despite being worse than both>noble approach is on the same tier as christ hart
>>6673981Good for you anon
you should have to post your art next to your tierlist so we can see whether your opinion on education materials is worth anything
looking awfully straight and white with these books. Do you people read anything by black and brown people? Maybe some out LGBT folks? No? That explains a lot about this board.
>>6673459not him, but the book is not structured and is awfully wishy-washyI want my books to provide information, not be a tool for self expression for the authorcompare it to faragasso’ s books or HVC, it reads like a giant blogpost in comparison
>>6673432What's that Animation book on S tier?
>>6674009Andrew Loomis was black
>>6673989no one who says mog is old enough to be on this board.
>>6673432Color and Light not being S tier makes no sense.
>>6674417Cope and seethe grandpaAs for the Color and Light people, I do think that it's a good book but it's too advanced to a beg to color. Betty Edwards and David Hornung's Books are better.
>>6674189come to think of it i've never seen a potrait of the guy himelf
>>6673994This. I am getting nothing from any of these posts.
>>6674023>ads like a giant blogpost in comparisonIt's essentially a compilation of his(great) gurney journey blog posts.
