Stock Image - Actual Cover May Vary

Mecha, a generic term well known in the manga and anime community, is short for mechanically-based humanoids-as well as anything else mechanical, high-tech, and really cool. If it can fly, swim, fire a weapon, explode, or destroy stuff, its mecha.<br /> <br /> Comic book and animation fans hunger for mecha. From the Gigantor animated TV series in the early 60s to todays Neon Genesis Evangelion, mecha is the king of anime. Most Japanese mecha animation features giant robots in epic battles. These giant robots are as tall as buildings-and teenage heroes enter the robots deathpit and navigate it like a fighter jet. Mecha is also popular in such Nintendo, Playstation, and Sega Dreamcast computer games as Mech Warriors, Battletech, and Combat Assault Vehicle.<br /> <br /> While some budding artists may not have a feel for human anatomy or drawing the expressive faces of cartoon characters, anyone who can draw blocks and circles can draw mecha. <i>Mecha Mania</i> demonstrates how easy it is to draw fantastic mecha vehicles, robots, space stations, and more. The 300 step-by-step illustrations make it simple for anyone to master this wildly popular comic book genre and achieve dramatic results.<br /> <br /> <i>Mecha Mania</i> features all of the coolest mecha designs and variations, along with outrageous battle scenes.
