    Smile My Mecha Art book is DONE!

    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

    I bought a copy of this one, and if you're into Mechs (who isn't???) this book is jam packed with interesting designs. It also features some insightful tips and tutorials to kick start your own mech-making.

    With all the interest in mecha, I wonder if 50 years from now (or however long it takes for robotics tech to reach that point) people will actually be building them. Nice designs.

    Thanks. I,m guessing it will always be too impractical and expensive to build a real mech like these, even when it is technically possible.
