Doug Chiang is a master of sci-fi. You've seen his work in Star Wars, The Terminator, Beowulf and all kinds of other stuff. Now he's showing you how he does it in Mechanika, his first ever instructional book. Here's a taste.
This is one of my personal favorites. It never ceases to amaze me how much narrative Doug can cram into one painting. The book is chock full of advice for any artist working in the genre, but I particularly liked Doug's end note.
"I'm often asked how much time I spend on a drawing or painting. ... It's not a race. The end result is what matters most. When people see your work they will not be impressed with how fast it was completed, but they will care if it's done very well."
