Lovers of aircraft in any form will find a wealth of instruction and entertainment in How To Draw and Paint Aircraft Like a Pro --Hobby merchandiser ;Looking for a primer on aviation art? Then this is your book! 'How to Draw Aircraft Like a Pro' fills a huge gap in the literature of art instruction by comprehensively addressing aviation fine art. Frank Wootton published 'How to Draw Planes' in 1941. Jim Dunavent wrote 'How to Draw Airplanes' in 1973. Both of these books were nice efforts in their day, and have become collectable classics in their own right. Even if they were still in print, they would come far short of addressing the nuances of aviation art as comprehensively as does this new book. To be sure, the necessities for producing fine art - composition, perspective, light and shadow, hue, value, intensity and so on, are independent of the subject matter. However, in practice, many people are drawn into the field of aviation art by dint of their passion for flight, rather than an overwhelming passion for art. This book was created to asist and encourage them. Established fine artists who don't need the art basics may still find the engineering and aeronautical insights of this book helpful. Consumers of aviation art are among the most demanding and detail driven to be found anywhere. To the 'rivet-counters,' fine art is also accurate and believable. There is no quarter given under the guise of 'artistic license'. The painting had better be right in every aspect of the story it is representing. The title itself is a good for getting the right people to pick it up and crack the cover. In truth, the book delivers far more than it promises, especially if you have the two books mentioned earlier. Drawing is the the crucial requisite skill for competant aviation art. It is the skill mentioned first by every master aviation artist who is queried on where to start. It is the also the skill most frequently neglected by the novice, who hopes in vain to shortcut the process by copying a photograph. The text hammers away on the basics of drawing, but also does get into the techniques for how to PAINT aircraft like a pro. The book is comprehensive and affordable. I found myself wishing for much larger reproductions of the excellent artwork, and for a hard cover in the interest of durability, otherwise I'd have extended a fifth star to the rating. 'How to Draw Aircraft Like a Pro' represents the cumulative lessons-learned of the first great generation of aviation artists, those who have brought aviation art its long deferred recognition as bona fide 'fine art'. An aspiring aviation artist could spend years of painting and enduring professional critiques at ASAA Forums to uncover the popular pitfalls of composition and execution one at a time- or they could avail themselves of the collected wisdom in this book. In summary, this book fills a huge gap in the literature. The artists and the authors did a very credible job of bringing together a huge amount of material on a complex subject. And they did it just in time for helping to Celebrate the Centennial of Flight 1903-2003. What could be better? Interested in aviation art? Buy this book, join the American Society of Aviation Artists, and grab a pencil... Blue Jay--This covers everything you need to take on your big notion of becoming an aviation artist. It will also serve you well for an understanding or perspective of objects in space, and to make the good compositional decisions. It was very inexpensive, and I was very surprised and pleased with what I got for so little. Now, to become rich and famous from my aviation art. --Merlin 97;This book covers the techniques involved in drawing aeroplanes, starting with the technicality of dwaring and shading various shapes, then going off to cover things such as perspective - an excellent buy --Model Aircraft Monthly, June, 2009

This book covers the techniques involved in drawing aerplanes, starting with the technicality of dwaring and shading various shapes, then going off to cover things such as perspective and the use of a grid pattern to aid inn getting the proportions correct. Something that the 'Great Masters' were familiar with. drawing aeroplanes is a mixture of freehand drawing and draughtsmanship. For instance there is a step-by-step structure of an ircraft's mainwheel at angle. it starts with a square into which is drawn a wheel. At the next stage the same square is reduced to an oblong, into which is drawn an ellipse. This forms the wheel face with the tyre tread drawn on the left hand side of the ellipse. When all the details is filled in we have a picture of the subject set at 30 degrees. the same principle is used to produce a propellor at the same angle, but this time all the details is produced witin the ellipse. Of course it is not only drawing and painting skills that are discussed but also the materials to use. there is even a chapter on computer techniques. There are masses of illustrations covering all types of aircraft pictures....If you woud like to emulate the likes of my old friend Keith Woodcock, and other Guild of Aviation artists, then this could be for you. --Model Aircraft Monthly, June, 2009
