From post-apocalyptic Earth to extraterrestrial civilizations, get ready to explore the farthest reaches of your imagination and evoke your own original sci-fi worlds.

Starting with simple guidelines, you'll discover how to create distinct characters just by varying facial features, body mass and hair. Beyond the mechanics of drawing, you'll learn to make strategic creative choices by asking questions like: What drives your characters? Do they dress for survival or social status? What materials are at their disposal? The answers help you develop fashions, weapons and accessories uniquely suited to the environmental and cultural conditions of your particular world. The Sci-Fi genre has no limits. With the instruction and inspiration inside, neither will you.
