4.0 étoiles sur 5More design than technique13 juin 2009
Par Parka - Publié sur Amazon.com
The book collects 50 designs of fantasy vehicles, with several created by guest artists.
Plenty of variety is included. There are personal flight bikes, alien-like 4 wheelers, air ships, tanks (of course) and even a 6 legged mare. They are really creative and original, making this book a great resource book.
The process of creating each vehicle is shown from the basic shape construction, to adding details and finally putting in the colours. There are a lot of pointers given on creating the different part of the vehicles. But these pointers don't really explain the technical aspect of drawing. For example, it says that repeated elements such as legs should appear to be of identical proportion, but it doesn't mention how it can be done. The downside of the book is the lack of explanation on how perspective is used to design the vehicles.
So in summary, this book is loaded with tips and has great variety but is lacking in technical part that teaches how to draw. In short, it teaches the design aspect.
Keith Thompson has a website and you can see more of there.

4.0 étoiles sur 5A great "jumping-off point" for designing vehicles21 juin 2007
Par Tim Smalley - Publié sur Amazon.com
When first saw the book sitting on the shelf I thought to myself "Is this another Lee J Ames Draw 50 books?" I opened it up, and I was surprised. The author begins with some reference on modern and historical vehicles, making them armored, military war machines. Also covered are steam-punk, future cars and motorcycles, one creature from myth, and animal-machine hybrids. The illustrations are very good, and the author break down the forms of the vehicles into three dimensional shapes, showing them from three or four angles.

5.0 étoiles sur 5Great variety of vehicles!23 août 2007
Par Gilbert Espino Jr. - Publié sur Amazon.com
I was surprized by the great variety of vehicles. From boxy to sleak to biomorphic vehicles. Easy to follow step by step directions. From starting with basic box and rectangulars shapes. Then editing these shapes, and adding to these shapes, to create a vehicle.This book is for learning to drawing on paper but I will be using it to draw on the computer. I'm a media designer, I will use the techniques that I have learned from this book for my 2D art.That I create with photoshop and painter as well as my 3D work.The book is also great for coming up with ideas for vehicles. Great book for beginners!

I saw this at the book store and knew I had to get it. I like the designs they came up with. I know this is a short review but check out the picture I added and you'll get the idea of what is in the book. I recommend it.
