Learn how to draw a variety of futuristic robots and machines, and combine them to make your own sci-fi and fantasy scenes. This work includes background detail on each robot. "The How To Draw" series takes a highly visual and practical approach to drawing. Each title features step-by-step instructions for every project. Duotone line drawings illustrate each step. Different drawing materials are used, including pencil, pen, crayon, paints and charcoal, with clear instructions for each. The series covers a comprehensive range of popular subjects, with sections on materials, composition, perspective and technique; encourages children to 'record from first-hand observation, experience and imagination, and explore ideas'; teaches children to 'try out tools and techniques and apply these to materials and processes, including drawing'; and, helps achieve the goals of the Scottish Standard Curriculum 5-14, promoting 'positive attitudes to learning', 'knowledge, understanding and appreciation of the world' and 'skills in literacy'.
