Description du produit



One of the saddest lessons
you will learn when you go to art school is that your art is not very good. One day in sophomore year you will look down at your Dali-inspired colored pencil drawing of anthropomorphic lizards, and you won’t be able to ignore it any longer. You’ll look up at your professor and see it in her eyes: she thinks you’re a bad artist. She thinks you’re a bad artist, and she doesn’t think you’re ever going to get better. 
“Very creative,” she’ll say. 
“Thanks,” you’ll say.
John Lowe thinks you can get better. In fact, he’s sure you can get better. He’s sure you can get good.

This is what makes John Lowe a great teacher and an unusual one. If you are his student, he is interested in you and he is interested in your art. He finds out what your goals are, and he doesn’t let you forget them. He finds out what your comfort zone is, and he jabs and teases you out of it. He finds out what tools you’re used to using, and he doesn’t let you use them anymore. He finds out how much homework you’re used to doing, and he assigns twice as much. He takes artwork you were up all night working on and tells you to change everything. He tells you to change everything, and you squawk in disbelief, and John laughs and say, “Nothing’s precious.”

And it’s true: nothing you put on paper is precious. You have something else that’s precious, and it’s something John will find for you when you can’t find it yourself anymore. It’s why you started drawing in the first place. It’s in your hand, your eyes, your heart. Don’t lose it. Don’t let it get away.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Very Thorough Book about Foundation in Comic Book Art 16 août 2014
Par ariela kristantina - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I was very fortunate to have John Lowe as my professor in a several classes in SCAD. In this book, John Lowe explains everything as it is, very clear and straight forward --with his own and students' examples, how to's, and exercises, just like how he conducts his classes. I think it's interesting and important that he includes his and his students' works so the readers can see how other people approached the subject he teaches. It doesn't matter how many pages I have drawn, I find myself refer back to something in this book time to time. This book is timeless and just like how the book is to me, it will be one of those books you'd want to have around whether you're doing comics as a hobby or whether you want to do comics professionally.

Also, don't worry if English is not your first language, it isn't mine either --the book is still very easy to understand. The author divides the book into several chapters with increasing difficulties so as long as you don't skip chapters, you'll be fine :D.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 It's a Worthy Purchase 18 août 2014

This book has been extremely popular in my house the last few days - with every member of the family flipping through the pages - not only enjoying the illustrations by John Paul Lowe but also the friendly manner he explains how to achieve results. For me, what I like best is his appreciation for individuality - he isn't teaching a robotic pattern to follow - but rather a careful set of basics that allow each of our inner voices to be expressed on paper. Now, those pale white sheets of paper and pointed pencils are now less intimidating to me. It all seems doable and achievable and a heap of fun.

I'm an indy comic book artist and over the years I've bought several art books and art books specifically geared for comic books. A good deal of them out there are lack luster and only cover a small amount of what there is to learn. This book however, in my opinion, is one of the best out there on the subject! It covers a lot of ground and there's lots of great illustrations through out. Everything from penciling to perspective to computer coloring. Great purchase!

I love this book and plan on using it to help my artwork. I do wish it was longer and gave examples of hardware used for digital art. Still this book is a winner!

I started to learn to draw over a year ago and ordered this book. John Paul Lowe is an excellent teacher and this book which for me is now a gold standard in drawing has improved my drawing skills a hundred fold. This is a real keeper.
