  3. I would buy this at Comic Con. I would buy it in a coat, with a goat, here or there, anywhere. I would buy this now! Where is it? Give it to me!!

  4. Can I put a deposit down right now???

    It would be fantastic and very helpful to have your notes in book form. Would you consider selling it online? I won't be attending the con but would love to have a copy.

    Best,

  5. would love it!
    I really enjoy your way of explaining techniques fast and simplistic. I always learned something, or look at it refreshed when I've visited your blog.

    Also some pointers on storyboarding/telling would be very interesting too... ^^

  6. Yes, please. I learned a ton taking your class at LAAFA last year and still refer back to the notes that I took during class. I would love to have a book of all of your insights to be able to refer to as needed.

  7. Absolutely! I want one, but I won't be at Comic Con so make sure you sell it online too! :)

  9. I won't be at Comic Con but would definitely buy it if it was offered online. Please do it!

  10. I would purchase this book gladly and immediately. Your stuff is clean and easy to follow, and the blue, red, and black colours for the various bits makes it both attractive and understandable. Sign me up. (Would love both a physical book and an e-book of some form!)

  11. I'd buy the crap out of that book.

    ReplyDelete
  12. As an aside you should title it "How to be Rad"

    ReplyDelete
  13. Yes, please make the book! I suggest making it available for dl on iPad and iPhone. I would also love if you put some of the character design stuff in it too

  14. Another RESOUNDING YES from me, Rad! I've been training my daughter in art for years, and it's very difficult to find really solid instruction that isn't dumbed down. We've benefited a lot from what you post, but obviously it's not as comprehensive as a book.

    I will be one of the first in line to buy if you can do it. We gobble up everything you post here, and I've always wished there was some way we could attend your classes, but we live in the Midwest. This would be the next best thing.

  15. Any chance for it being available as a ebook/pdf to purchase for those who aren't able to acquire it at comicon?

    Cheers!

  16. I'd love to have one. Please do this.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Definitely interested!
    Would it be possible to include a section on how to caricature/exaggerate characters based on live models or reference?

    ReplyDelete
  18. I would like to.

    Your notes are really useful.

    But i could only order online since i am from Brazil.

  19. I would love that Rad! You've been a huge inspiration for me over the last 12 months. I would love to own a book by you ;)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  22. I'll be interested in buying it, provided it's in a digital format too (like PDF, or eBook).

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'm not interested. I feel like i've learned all i can from you. Just kidding, make the book. You are an awesome teacher.

    ReplyDelete
  24. If the price is right, I'd buy one. Have you considered one of those kickstarter things to raise funds?

    ReplyDelete
  25. I would definitely get this. If it wasn't for that big pool of water that's holding me back I would also sign up for your classes, I'm from the Netherlands.

    Cheers,

    Vincent

  28. Funnily enough I was just thinking it would be great if you had a book of tutorials/examples just last week!

    I would love to see it, especially if it goes into depth about drawing for storyboards and how you go about your storyboarding process?!

    thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Looks extremely helpful, I'd def. want this!!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I would definitely be interested in acquiring one of these hypothetical books

    ReplyDelete
  31. That tutorial book would be awesome! If this product suceeds, may I suggest you a storyboarding DVD? I'd love to peek over your shoulder while you create those crazy funny scenes!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I would 100% buy this book. But please make it available online as I won't make it to Comic Con! :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. I run a small illustration studio, and would love love love something like this from you. Your notes on figure invention and anatomy break things down so beautifully. Please make this, and make it shippable to Canada and we'll pick up a few copies.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  48. So needy of a book like this.

    oh gosh, I live in India and I havent found people who can teach me nor oppurtunities to watch and learn.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I put a bunch of your images from this blog on my phone to get me through the holiday travelling. I spent two flights between LA and Chicago staring at my iPhone with a sketchbook in hand studying all your notes on Gesture & Structure. I would pick up your book in a heart beat!

    ReplyDelete
