    Amazing! I love your art! I’ve been checking out a lot of the comics you’ve drawn, and think you’re really great! Thank you so much for sharing it with the world!

    I saw your work on my iPhone! Your work just leaps off the screen. I can’t believe you have SIX titles available on iTunes- Awakened Desire, Wild Sargasso, The Penguin, No Accident, Shipboard Masquerade, AND one in Spanish, I just searched with the keywords Ron Randall and Arrow Publications.

    Hi Lisa,

    I have heard good things about “Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain”, but the first, basic book that I looked at when I was learning myself was Jack Hamm’s “Drawing The Head and Figure”. Later I discovered a hard-to-find now book called “Figure Drawing For All It’s Worth” by Andrew Loomis. In my time I have looked at and used many art books. But these two are a great foundation. In addition, I spent a lot of time pouring over comics drawn by artists I have admired. Most of us start by imitating one or more masters, and gradually we develop our own style. Hope that helps. Good luck!

    HI Dylan,

    As I said in a reply to another comment, I used some good how-t-draw books, particularly Jack Hamm’s “Drawing the Head and Figure” to help me as a young, growing artist. In school, I took such art classes as were offered. By collage I was studying art and literature, because in this field, the story is made of the combination of word and picture, and having a good feel for “Story” is essential to the cartoonist/comic book artist. Ultimately, I attended the Joe Kubert School in New Jersey, where I learned from many masters of the trade. Along the way I always looked at comics drawn by any artist I admired. Mostly, I just “kept at it”.

    Hi Dylan– I was born a looong time ago– before man had walked on the moon or could carry a computer around in his pocket! Isn’t that weird?

    Hi Dylan, Yes I knew Chris. We both worked for Dark Horse in the early days. Chris created “Black Cross” and I did “Trekker”. Later we worked on Predator books for Dark Horse as well. Many good times.
