Draw Futuristic Robots that Fly, Fight, Battle and BrawlWhen it comes to drawing robots, beauty is more than skin deep – try armor deep. Slick surfaces and fancy mechanics aren’t enough … success depends on what makes your robot tick and MechaForce gears your imagination into overdrive!33 step-by-step demonstrations show you how to render original, memorable robots, and bring them to life on the page. Learn how to: • Draw believable humanoid robots by using tubes, pipes, nuts, bolts, hydraulics and other machinery in place of muscles and bones. • Model robots after horses, spiders, dragons and other creatures. • Give your robots personality, from sleek and athletic to thin, comical or feminine. • Evoke an in-your-face sense of drama and action with extreme perspectives and different poses. • Achieve the realistic look of reflective surfaces and other robotic textures. • Compose dynamic scenes and establish moods with lighting.Don’t short-circuit your robo-creations. From the basics of drawing to dynamic battle scenes, MechaForce will help you create devastating robots with a no-holds-barred attitude!
