Ah, I dig. Yeah, there are books that teach the fundamentals and inner workings of machines, rotary parts, and the like. Probably the best place to look is in the engineering section of a college bookstore. They won't be aimed at artists, but there should be enough diagrams and illustrations to get some use out of them. Seems like they'd be pretty expensive though. There's always used bookstores, I've found tons of valuable reference material sifting through bargain bins.

"Everybody wants to be Liefield??"

For real?  ???

Does Ashley Wood count as Western? I loved his style in the early Metal Gear Solid comics and just prior to him working on that. Now I think he pumps things out too quick it's looking he's tried pushing the style too far. I like Howard Shum's Gun-Fu, too, mostly for the lively palette. Alberto Ruiz, as well, more for his obsessive examination of line. Obviously other artists that people have already mentioned...

Modern artists are told that they must create something totally original-or risk being called "derivative".They've been indoctrinated with the concept that bad=good.The effect is always the same: Meaningless primitivism

That's awful Sharpm XD.. I am pretty sure Helm and a goat could never procreate, regardless of his affection towards them. Sorry Helm.
