Hey everyone, I have been working on this personal project for the last 5 months and I am ecstatic to announce that it is finally finished. By that I mean I have received the final books form the printer so it is really, really "done".
I have a video flip-through of the book on my web site VIDEO AND BOOK DETAILS
It is my second robot/mecha art book but this one is better in every way. I do a lot of freelance mecha designs and I was fortunate to get approval from some of my clients to include their commissions in the book. I also created several new pieces and some inspirational tutorials to add depth and freshness.
There are 24 mecha in the book and I included the sketches and development work whenever possible so it has a lot of stuff. The book ended up with 112 full-color pages.
I had to learn Adobe InDesign to do the layout, which wouldn't have been possible without Lynda.com. I also had to do a lot of research into printers. I finally found an American printer in Texas that was able to do a quality job at a competitive price. I really wanted to keep the job in the USA if at all possible. I was even able to make it a hardcover
Here are some samples from the book. Hope you like them
