Good tips Jan 22, 2004
Here are some of the types of monsters that this book covers: cult classic monsters, Robotic monsters, aliens, Godzilla-styles monsters, humanoid monsters, plant monsters, and sea monters. This book covers basic tips, such as the box form to use and there are lots of examples. In the beginning, the tutorial on drawing cult classic monsters were really good. I like that part the best. The authors start off using basic body forms and guiding you through the steps. But as we turn to the later part of the book, the steps are truncated and the authors merely point out the sketches.
The main reason for knocking one point off the rating is because this is NOT for beginners. People who are considering this book should have a good feel for drawing shapes and anatomy. This book also assume you know the workings on perspective and shading, as well as how to detail and adding effects.
The drawings are from the studio of Antartic Press, which also produce such comics as "Gold Diggers," "Warrior Nun Areala" and the "How to Draw Manga" series. The artists present a mostly Manga and Japanese Anime feel to it. Inspiring artists who wanted to get a glimpse at AP's studio style should consider this book.
