Reviews - What do customers think about Manga Techniques Volume 3: Robot Design Techniques For Beginners (Manga Techniques)?
one of the better books on mecha ive seen in some time Dec 13, 2003
well i took a chance on this book , i read a review in sketch magazine about this book , and decided to check it out , as i already own two other books that were decent , but not amazing. i figured for the price.. if i didnt like it , i could just return it. well i have to say this book took me by suprise , it is a very good beginner to intermediate book , especially for the price.it gives alot of good pictures of the various body parts that make up a mech. this book in combination with How to draw manga : giant robots by hikaru hayashi , and mecha mania by christopher hart will have you drawing uber cool mechs in no time. if you are more advanced then this isnt the book for you. if you are just starting out , then i highly recommend this title. chapters are : before you begin drawing , drawing the head , body , arms , legs , and variety of robot design. it even comes with 4 sheets (of pre ruled non repro blue 1 ply) art boards for you to put your designs on . i can also recomend Let's Draw Manga: Transforming Robots by yasuhiro nitta if you want to draw transforming mecha.
