I love Gundam robots and I want to learn how to draw them from imagination and come up with my own designs. Is there anyone experienced with Gundam art to help me with feedback or give pesonal lessons for a fee? If you are please post your art and an email I can reach you to. Thank you.

I don't think I'm in a position to offer a class on the subject atm but I do have an interest in mechs. I've been drawing them since I was a kid. Gundams can be pretty challenging. For the technical skills you'll need to study perspective and some anatomy. For the design you'll want study the gundams you like to understand the design language then focus on taking inspiration from real world things like armors, robotics, or other subjects you want to Gundamify. I wouldn't mind starting a study group on this subject where we set up challenges and critiques.

Nice work!!! Yes I would be very interested too!!! Up to recently I've had no design experience so I took up some car design courses in order to get at least an idea on how styling works. I did help in the understanding of Gundam shape language a bit but I don't have anything organised yet and most books I found on the subject are written in japanese. I keep trying though. Any ideas on how to make a study group and attract interested people?

Hey Konstantinos! This is a recent Gundam inspired bot of mine, but I don’t specialize in all things Gundam- I’m a fairly new fan. If you have any art you’d like to share here though please feel free!

Hi there! You don't need to be specifically drawing gundam as its own. Typically those robot structures follow the shape of muscle in human or other animals, that's why we associate them with proper form and its mechanism. Try using "chain" method to picture the interconnecting volumes, and practice drawing rigid shapes in perspective. I'd suggest you look at Scott Robertson's How to Draw book, it has very detailed explanation on how rigid shapes are plotted in 3d space. For some reason I always associate mecha with erotic fantasies so I don't tend to draw them much. But robots are nothing different than drawing say vehicles and architectures. So keep practising. Also, don't feel afraid to draw gundam as what you understand they would be look like. Then the key is to compare your stuff to the existing references, and check carefully whats different. You will then see something's off, figure out why that's off, maybe the ratio wasn't represented correctly, or you misunderstood structure in the first place. Do this over and over again so you'll see improvements!

I have Scott Robertsons book and also I take drawabox course. Thank you for the suggestion. What I am looking for in particular though is someone with experience on drawing Gundam or similar mechs to receive feedback from.

Hello Konstantinos! I've never made the jump into Gundam, but I'm a fan of all giant robots and love their designs. Possibly my first drawing book ever was "You Can Draw Transformers." By and large, I think that it covers many topics that would be helpful for constructing your Gundams. I will admit it's a pretty basic book. At the very least, it's a fun book to flip through and see cool robots. I'll see if I can share some images from it tomorrow.

Hello Jared!! Thank you for the recommendation!! I checked out the book. It does look like it has some interesting techniques in it.

Hi, I have no experience with Gundam robots, but I think with any type of drawing starting out with the basics fundamentals of drawing can be a good start.
