Mechanika - Creating the art of Science Fiction with Doug Chiang
I searched the forum for 'Mechanika' and it doesn't look like anyone has posted about this book before? Although I could have missed the post...
This book is awsome. It has a stacks of walk through tutorials where the author shows the progression of his sci-fi concept art from pencils sketches through to digitally coloured artworks.
I am very keen to improve my skill with colouring and to try my hand at digital painting (my natural style is more cartoony and simple colours)... and I have been using this book as a bit of a guide.
Maybe the walk-throughs could be a bit more detailed. But still a v useful book.
