Book: Mecha Force

Mechaforce is the result of my laboring over for more than 6 or 7 months. This is the first book that I ever written, so the excitement for me is without word. Impact Books came to me about an idea of a book to show people how to draw robots, I just couldn't pass up the opportunity.

The book was divided into 3 chapters, chapter 1 being fundamental of all things, not just drawing robots. I've always felt that artworks will look better if you could build it up from the very basics.

Chapter 1 deals with perspective and some sketching techniques. No artist should be without these skills, even if you are not drawing robots, perspective also applies everything in life.

Chapter 2 deals with robotic anatomy. I'd like to get novice artists a different perspective on robots, a view on the inside. How to translate flesh, tendons and bones into something might function mechanically.

Chapter 3 is all about step by step instructions. Taking a few different body types of robotic and show you how I would draw them from scratch, and also in various different angles.

Those who are interested in drawing robots, please check it out, and let me what you think of the book. This is my first book, it's far from being perfect, I hope I get more chances to do more books like this. The more comments and suggestions I can get from the masses, the better I can hope to do in the future.
