スターウォーズ・エピソード1、2で活躍した、ダグ・チャン氏によるSFアートの描き方入門本。ステップバイステップで分かりやすく解説されています。参考にするには、フォトショップ(英語の)が使えないとちょっとツライかも知れませんが、絵を見ているだけでも楽しめます。
収録されているイラストは、スターウォーズに出てきそうなメカが中心で、エイリアン、モンスターもちらほら。排気ガスをもくもく吐いているメカが目に付きますが、これはダグ・チャン氏がスチームパンクSFのファンだからかな?

表紙が気に入ったので、
ロボットの画集かな、説明文も読まずにポチッとやっちゃいましたが
内容はHOW TO本でした。
勝手な勘違いでの購入でしたが、大変参考になる本でした。
全編英語ですが、マンガ、イラスト等でロボットを
描く人は必読ではないでしょうか?
プロが丁寧に教えてくれる、そういった印象を受けました。

5つ星のうち 5.0 Tutorials from a pro 2008/11/11
投稿者 Parka - (Amazon.com)

It's not very often you see a great concept artist come up with a tutorial book. Here, we have a great book by Doug Chiang. He's the concept artist for big movie hits like Star Wars, War of the Worlds and Terminator just to name a few.

In this book are 30 lessons and step-by-step tutorials for creating science fiction art, mainly robots. There are details and tips for using Photoshop.

Through these pages, one can see Doug Chiang's process of creating sci-fi concept art. It's always interesting to find out how other artist work, especially one of such high caliber.

His work has also appeared in other books like Robota, and The Art of Star Wars: The Revenge of the Sith.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Worth The Wait 2008/7/31
投稿者 colie - (Amazon.com)

For those of you who've seen the author's art in print or person, the stars are no surprise. If you haven't seen his work, this book not only showcases his talents and skills as a designer/renderer in finished pieces, it gives direct insight and instruction on how he gets there. From pencil sketch to marker render to digital finished product, Doug takes you through his approach to getting an idea onto a medium.

What seperates this book from other "how-to" books in this design field is it's engaging simplicity in execution. Doug's broken the book into easy-to-browse chapters that cover different techniques and design subject matter in each. This is to it's benefit, as each step encompasses not only fundamental techniques of execution, but Doug's insights on the design of the subject matter. There is little, if any, over-explaining. The instructional images do the talking with simple text accompanying each.

Did I mention it's really hard to find a good (if any) book on marker techniques? This one's the best I've seen. So if you've been thinking about trying markers as a new style, this is a must have.

An all-out great purchase and true bargain considering you get a concept design, multiple-technique, step-by-step package by a truly exceptional and highly respected industry artist.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Highly recommended. 2008/6/20

I've just finished reading this book, and I can confidently state that it is one of the best books available pertaining to the subject of creating science fiction art.

The author does an excellent job explaining both the technical aspects of the drawings, but also how he goes about the design process. There are dozens of designs explored, each emphasizing either a different approach or a different subject in a step-by-step manner.

There are other books of this nature available, but they are generally not as well thought out or organized as Mechanika. It seems like there was a real effort put into this book towards covering a wide variety of subjects in a detailed manner, and it really shows. The little tips sprinkled throughout the book make it invaluable.

This book should age well with the viewer, and long after all of the tips and techniques have been absorbed I imagine it will still be an excellent source of inspiration to thumb through from time to time.

5つ星のうち 3.0 Useful book 2009/7/16
投稿者 Amazon Customer - (Amazon.com)

While this isn't an in depth book on drawing, it does give some useful advice on how you can start to go about creating your own work, using the book as a reference guide. Written by someone with a lot of experience of working in a professional environment, Doug talks about some of the basic principles for producing good work. Always encouraging to see that something which looks difficult and complex started out as a modest sketch. If you're going to be able to draw as well as this you need to spend a fair bit of time doing normal observational drawing, Doug has an excellent eye for form and perspective. You don't get this good just from working from photos or spending all your time in Photoshop.

5つ星のうち 5.0 and now I can draw sci fi! 2010/10/12
投稿者 J.J. Kilroy - (Amazon.com)

This book is incredible! I followed Doug's methods, and now I am turning out work that is leagues better than before.

Firstly, the book teaches you to draw sci-fi machinery. Maybe you thought you had to go to engineering school to work out the drive-train for a walking tank or a rocket-powered aircraft? Well, the book teaches you to invent and draw all the mechanisms and pseudo-engineering that make sci-fi machines look realistic. And Doug makes it fun. It takes practice, but he gives you simple guidlines to work it out. For example, you would use an actual photo of a tractor engine and drive-train construction to develop the design for the leg mechanisms of a walking robot, etc.

Secondly, this book does not cover 3-D digital imagery/auto-CAD/computer-generated-imagery. It does cover digital painting, but only as a method to color render designs; usually first rendered on paper in black-and-white. The book focuses on developing designs on paper, first.

The author often draws the designs on paper with full tone rendering, and then he scans them into the computer, and renders effects, color, texture, background, error correction, and much much more.

There isn't a great depth of technique discussion on digital painting, but the book does much to specifically detail many fundamentals of digital painting, with screen-shots to teach many tools and tips and tricks of digital painting. Still, it is the focus on paper-drawing that is exactly what I was looking for.

The methods are easy and versitile; yielding quite varied styles.
The author varies the sequence and combinations of mediums and techniques depending on the subject to be rendered. The mediums covered are blueline pencil, varied strengths of cool-grey markers (20%, 40%, 60%), a simple airbrush technique for background haze effects (optional), and finally digital painting 101. I was able to follow the majority of the digitial painting methods without using a computer drawing tablet! But, I have now purchased one, so my quality should improve all the more.

The paper-based methods covered in the book have been staples in concept-drawing for decades, apparently. After viewing the book, I now recognize the techniques in concept-design drawings going back to the 80's.

The book covers many wheeled machines, space-ships, an ornithopter, 2 jet-fighters, and more, but the author is obsessed with walking machines/tanks/robots of all sorts. Personally, I think walking machines are a silly concept (1 leg down, and it ceases), but I have no complaints about this book!

The author discusses the impracticality of walking-machines, and windows on a spaceship, and a steam-powered tank, but his focus is on aesthetic design, iconic design, and sellable designs. He's got to sell his designs to get them on the big-screen, afterall. You will appreciate and learn and enhance your own design ability!

Lastly, the book has a really strong plastic-coated dust-jacket that seems to hold up against abuse of all sorts, and the pages are printed in super high quality resolution of strong paper.
