Simply ... amazing Jul 27, 2006
When I received the book and looked at it, all I could see are just boxes, page after page, BUT I WAS WRONG.
Drawing transformers are not simple, but after I read this book page after page, I realized that these boxes transformed into ROBOTS I dreamed to draw ... SO, this book is like the bible of understanding how to draw Transformers, the author are incredibly simplifying this amazing art... My advice! It's for young and adults artist for sure.
Mecha and Transfomers fans - buy this now! Aug 23, 2004
I've purchased every English-language how-to draw manga book I could find pertaining to mecha. This one ranks near the top. Some books I've seen give good instruction on the step-by-step of how to draw, but are lacking in inspired designs. Others have good art, but are lacking in teaching you the thought process and steps needed to render your own work-they're just showcases. Jackson-sensei manages to accomplish both his roles as teacher and source of inspiration. The book includes everything from what equipment to buy to get started to how to add character and personality to a mech. The book covers a tough subject: transforming robots. Yet it manages to convey its concepts clearly in a manner highlighted by beautiful art. Mr. Jackson ought to get a job at Hasbro or Takara. His designs definitely follow a the "Transformers" design philosophy, yet are unique in their detailing. The transformations look like they really work too. What made me happiest was the last page, which promises a forthcoming volume titled "You Can! Draw Mecha".
