As quasi-promised, here's the list of books I'm pouring over these days. I'm always on the lookout for resources.

Books on Drawing Everything:

DRAW; How to Master the Art, by Jeffery Camp

Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain, by Betty Edwards
A Course in Enhancing Creativity and Artistic Confidence.

Books specifically for Figure Drawing:

Bridgman's Complete Guide to Drawing from Life, by George B. Bridgman
A compilation based on the following Bridgman books: Constructive Anatomy; Life Drawing; The Book of a Hundred Hands; The Human Machine; Heads, Features and Faces; The Female Form; and The Seven Laws of Folds.

Life Drawing, by Diana Constance
A complete cource in figure drawing, incorperating advice on techniques and drawing mediums.
I seem to have an old copy that might be out of print, but there is a newer book by her called Life Drawing Class, that I would be interested in checking out.

The Human Figure, by John H. Vanderpoel
Kevin showed us this book in class last week. An unassumingly small book, tightly packed with examples of how to draw different features and details of the human form.
