Format: Paperback
Length: 0:56 Mins
Nuthin' But Mech is the book from the blog of the same title. The blog was founded by Lorin Wood and has been updated regularly by a group of talented artists, of which 31 are featured here.

This 128-page paperback features a nice variety of mech designs. Many are weapon equipped mechs but there are also those for utility purposes, some animal inspired designs and two that actually play basketball. These are all original concepts from the artists. As with mech designs, there are lots of details to see.

The art is top notch. Only a handful of pages are devoted to 3D models and renders. The rest are painted, some with sketches.

The book mentioned that this is the first installment so there's more to come.

Highly recommended to those who like robots and mech designs.

(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)

Nice Book, great artwork in a concise subject related collection, I am not much for the super big war-bots ( I know from experience they would just be fire-magnets and larger targets- you couldnt armor them enough to survive the amount of enemy attention they would garner) but I do love the power armor tthat is the way to go! Probably get the second book in a couple of months after I get back from oversea's. A book on just power armor and combat exoskeletons I would buy instantaneously as well.

Nice work!
thanks
Chris

Great book that you will love to peruse and see all the wonderful art of fantastic mech. Like Volume 2 I have favorites and in this one it is Marc Gabbana who has a style I really love. You will have your own favorites once you get this book.

Yes, You can always find loads of pretty pics on line of mechanicals, but sometimes its just fun to have some hard copies of them, to bring out and share w visiting friends, to show on your book shelf, (if they still make those) heh! And the price was great! a nice little splurge for me for the month.

Just wish it was bigger, hardback, more pics! Don't we always? ;)

It DOES have every page filled w pics! I just don't want the book to end, tis all.
