    "You Can Draw Transformers" Book: PICS!!

    I know most of you have probably heard about this. I picked it up today when I saw it in the bookstore simply as a collectible, but I was surprised by how cool it really was. It has several pages of translucent overlay sketches. It's probably commonplace in art books, but I never read them so it's fresh to me. Anyways, if you have $20 burning a hole in you pocket, pick it up. It's drawn by Guido Guidi, and has blurbs by Marcelo Matere, Nick Roche, and Andrew Wildman.

    I took a few pics:

    I can TRY to draw them, but I'll probably fail miserably.

    Yeah, I own it. It's really helpful, as it explains the processes behind the drawing, not just how to do it.
    I just wish it were a little longer and explained the construction more.

    I've had the book for awhile now, it's really interesting. I still need to practice drawing.

    Yup. I'll save my money for more lithographs by these guys instead.
