    Going to throw it out there that Colour and Light is kind of wonderful! :3
    I sorta got more into digital painting due to the Digital Painting Techniques books after getting burned badly by a book that claimed to teach digital painting in photoshop but turned out to be a book about how to fake paintings from photographs.

    I love art books yeah

    One of my favorites is the Drawn to Life series by Walt Stanchfield, who was a Disney animator for decades

    Another is The Magic of Drawing by Cliff Wright

    None of these really focus on HOW TO DO ANATOMY AND TECHNIQUE AND STUFF but I mean I can learn anatomy and all that with internet tutorials, I really like these books because they're helpful if you're a cartooning nerd (for the first one) and to develop a style and all that jazz (the second one).

    I highly recommend them.

    I second the book Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain. It's excellent. :3

    I'd also check out How to Draw Animals and Drawing the Human Figure. They're both by Jack Hammm and are awesome and fascinating. I highly recommend his books!

    I'm a big Andrew Loomis Fan, tho I don't think I've ever sat down and gone through any of his books 100%.
    If I recall correctly you wont get in trouble for downloading his books, as they're pretty old and hosted almost everywhere, but just in case I won't link to them. Just do a google search if you want, they're quite easy to find.

    Do the Diablo III Collector Edition's artwork book counts? It has some crazyass sketches and paintings and stuff.
