Mean Machines are tough, fast, even huge, but drawing them is as easy as 1, 2, 3, Go!

At least, it will be when you follow this comprehensive, easy to use guide from popular comic and film artist Dermot Walshe. Walshe, a lifelong fan of mean machines and an avid motorcyclist, teaches you everything you need in order to draw cool, stylish vehicles. You'll learn to steer your way through art supplies, set up a drawing area, sketch and trace, create exciting backgrounds, add drivers and passengers, and even how vehicles work on the inside! With Mean Machines you'll discover the ins and outs of drawing every car, truck, or motorcycle you've ever seen, as well as tips on creating the cars and motorcycles of the past and not-too-distant future. From gangster's getaway cars, to monster trucks, to motorcycles, no matter what your skill level you'll learn to use the most basic lines and shapes to create advanced artwork.

Inside you'll find:

  • 20 step-by-step demonstrations covering a wide variety of cars, trucks, and motorcycles from various time periods and angles
  • secrets to drawing drivers and creating cool settings
  • solutions to drawing issues specific to each type of vehicle, including the basic engineering of different makes and models
  • hundreds of unique, detailed color and black and white illustrations
  • a helpful, illustrated glossary of car, truck and motorcycle parts

    Whether you dream of becoming a professional artist or are just looking to have some fun, Mean Machines will give you all the instruction, inspiration, and tools necessary to draw both the vehicles you see and the ones you can only imagine!
