TO DRAW

& PAINT

Discover how to draw and paint spectacular fantasy vehicles--from futuristic dream cars to magical floating ships and alien spacecraft--in a wide range of traditional and digital media.

The book's main directory is a great mechanical workshop of fantastic designs to copy and adapt to your own unique specifications. Each concept features basic constructional shapes, sketched outline drawings, and a fully rendered finished artwork. Thirteen super-simple starter models allow you to start drawing right away.

A core techniques section advises on getting inspired and instructs in storytelling, working in varied media, adding context, creating metallic and textured effects, implying scale, and depicting motion as you create dynamic fantasy crafts.

Synopsis:

The great popularity of fantasy and science fiction themes in films, books, graphic novels, and computer games has created a continuing demand for artists who can conceptualize and draw convincing space ships of tomorrow, as well as other fantasy vehicles such as cars, tanks, and sea-going vessels of the future. In this book, artist and designer Keith Thompson presents a practical course for art students. He starts with advice on finding research and reference materials, and then advises on using them as inspiration before sketching out original ideas for finished illustrations. The book's extensive main section presents a "mechanical workshop" of fantasy designs for students to copy and adapt to their own story needs and specifications. It gives attention to the techniques of drawing, shading, and coloring. The author analyzes each of the book's fantasy vehicles in terms of how and why artists came to their final design, how well the vehicles fit into the story being told, and how they would move, sound, and perform. Clear instruction is supplemented with more than 400 vivid, step-by-step color illustrations of sample projects.
