The author touches on using Photoshop, 3D modeling programs, and writing character background stories. No offense, but I'd rather have some suggestions on how to draw the characters; not how to scan and color or spin yarns around them. I mean, the book IS titled "How To Draw...". Granted though, like every other topic in the book, the author doesn't spend much time on these topics.
Seriously, I didn't see hardly anything on how to start drawing, and building these characters up. No stick figures, and very little in the way of rough sketches.
I really feel like I wasted my money on this.
There just isn't enough "how to" in this "how to".
There is not a step by step of how to draw fantasy females on a single page. There's a couple rough sketches, and some "completed" pictures. The cover is much better done than any other part of the book, no comparison as far as the level of finish put into it. None of the girls were sexy or seductive, more like lack-luster-anime- stick girls, highly accessorized. For a girl to be sexy, there needs to be a couple curves, like the girl on the front cover. This is hands down the worst art book I have ever seen, and the worst how-to book too, and I have about 100 art books. This is not worthy to be on my shelf *toss*
I got this thinking it'd show me how to draw suits and armor and stuff for females, not tell me that i could draw a girl with a gun or a female alien shaped like a uterus (im dead serious), whats up with that?
If i knew what i know now about this book, I wouldnt buy it. I can't really say who this book would be useful for. I guess its for those who want to draw fantasy style, but have no idea what kind of fantasy settings exsist. And with all the movies, cartoons, videogames, and comic books out there, i dont thing such a person walks this earth.
I wouldnt call it a waste, it does have some nice artwork in it, but overall its useless for me. I'm not an expert or draw for a living or anything like that and im not new at it. This would have been useful if it tought you how to draw stuff or at least had more/unheard of archetypes. Another thing is that this book does is assumes you want to make a comic book which gets annoying because it gives story ideas instead telling me what i wanted to learn.
