Added those, guys~ Thanks for the additions! Also, if you find any broken links, let me know. Most of these, I'm not testing, lol. No time. >.>;;;; But anyway. As far as making separate categories for digital and traditional, I may do that at some point. :) Thanks so much for all of the suggestions~

Also, I can remove the Framed Ink one if you guys feel that it's inappropriate. ^^

I, personally, don't feel its inappropriate, but I know there are people on CM who are sensitive to nudity which is why I brought it up.

I just found a video of a guy flipping through and there definitely is some at the back end when he talks about body silhouette/line of action.
A great book but if you can't handle some artistic nudity (its about as detailed as a barbie doll) or if you are ok with ripping out one page because from what I can see its only on one page

Ah, thanks for helping resolve that~ : D  Perhaps not best for the list then, I must've missed that last page. Tis a fantastic book though.

Decided to just mark it as having undetailed nudity. :) That way, if there's someone who wants it and isn't bothered by that, they can still get it.

Sounds like a happy medium, because it is a very useful book!

Removed "Framed Ink" and the two "How to Draw Computones" books. I've been informed that some of the content is detailed nudity or extremely suggestive (I saw shots of some of the pages, and they were a bit too much). Just so you all know~

Ah ok~ I only saw a quick flash of one of the pages of Framed Ink so wasn't sure and didn't have it on me to check

Drawn by the Father by James White

The Potter's Freedom by James White

Debating Calvinism by James White and Dave Hunt

The Roman Catholic Controversy by James White

The Same Sex Controversy by James White and Jeffrey D. Niell

All of Grace by C.H. Spurgeon

Last Days Madness by Gary DeMar

Unleashing God's Word in Your Life by John MacArthur

God is the Gospel by John Piper

Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe (you can read this for free here:
http://biblehub.com/library/defoe/robinson_crusoe/index.html)

The Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan (you can read this for free here:
http://biblehub.com/library/bunyan/the_pilgrims_progress/index.html)
_

I'm trying to only stick with what I have actually read (or, in the case of Last Days Madness, am currently reading through). These are what I recall, and I'll try to add more if I recall anything else.

EDIT:

Sorry, I figured this may be useful also:

http://biblehub.com/library/

All sorts of stuff you can read for free and legally, as far as I know.

EDIT 2:

By the way, I'm not necessarily recommending everything in that library by any means as if it's all solid, just the library itself. Very useful tool.

EDIT 3:

Yeah, some Roman Catholic stuff in there, it seems (Teresa of Avila), and even Charles Finney (pretty much pure Pelagian), so be careful if you're reading through there.

Some authors I'd personally suggest would be John Bunyan, John Flavel, John Calvin, John Knox, John Charles Ryle, (oh my gosh, so many Johns?!), Jonathan Edwards, Charles Haddon Spurgeon, George Whitfield, George Muller, A.W. Tozer and A.W. Pink. I'm sure there are more, but those're some names that stand out to me and that I'm comfortable recommending.

You're welcome. They've been useful to me, and I hope they'll be useful to others as well.

Thank you for creating this thread. Good idea, sister!

Just my two cents, but it might be more appropriate to keep the Recommended Reading to art/how-to books only - if CM recommends theology books, then chances are it is crossing that line of being non-denominational (as taken from the front page):
Quote
We do not support strong denominational lines dividing the body of Christ and respect the viewpoints of other denominations. Even though we may not agree on everything, we try to get along as best we can.

Not saying we should discuss those books or their content - far from it, that's healthy - but the recommended reading list probably isn't the place to have that discussion.
