Marvel a marvel?, 14 May 2003
As a whole this book gives a nice insight into what drawing techniques Marvel use. Though I did find that many techniques are found in any drawing book such as describing form, dynamics, perspective and foreshortening. No bad thing of course.
Where I found this book to be most insightful was on the topic of action, creating a figure pose that gives the illusion of dramatics; and composing interesting scenes.
The only disapointment I experienced with this book is the exclusion on muscle structure and the dynamics of clothes etc. So you may be able to produce a superb rough of a character but not know how the muscle and outerwear should be in order to make it look correct.
Overall a nice book, well presented and food for thought. If you are a fan of Marvel then it certainly is worth a look.
