Encore by Eric Canete

This is one of the books that I've been waiting to get my hands on. I missed his kickstarter campaign last year may and have been waiting ever since. He has this deal that if you happen to be the first 13 buying his book in conventions, he'll draw a free ink sketch for you. I was there at the end of Heroes Convention last week and during the auction, one of his piece of painting (snow white if I remember correctly) sold for $3,400 USD. You can visit his blog HERE to purchase his book and he updates it pretty frequently. He'll be at San Diego Comic Con this year July I believe so if you ever get the chance, you might want to consider buying one of his Encore books.

The book consists of mainly black and white ink drawings from 2005 through to 2011. The book is 352 pages thick and contains some color paintings at the back along with a few copic rendering drawings. What is great about this book is the fact that you can still see the underlying pencil drawings in most of the illustrations. The content of his sketches range from marvel and dc super heroes to the likes of beauty and the beast: basically anything that he finds interest in drawing. This book shows great draftsmanship and how illustrations should be: with background drawings, not merely figures.
