The 'how-to' content I thought was sadly lacking: basic, beginner-level head- and figure-construction. Joe's quite the artist, and I would have enjoyed more insight into his method than 'make a pin-up's eyes a little bigger and tilt them'. Maybe I shouldn't fault him-- plenty of talented artists are far less articulate when they try to explain how they make it happen.
The real value in this book is Joe Chiodo's art itself. I don't really care if he can explain how he does it or not-- he does pin-ups and he does them well.
Maybe it would be best if he let his results speak for themselves...
I love Joe's style. This was a bit light on instruction, but did showcase Joe's workflow, and if you're an artist who knows how to paint, this will give you some stuff to think about for sure!
This is a great book, but sadly not what I expected. It's not for beginners really, you need some idea how to draw before picking it up. It explains color theory really well, and the ideals of a pin up. It gives some tips on drawing, but it doesn't really break it down that much. I mean there is barely any mention on drawing breast form and shape, which you think would be important for pin ups. All in all it's an amazing book for someone in the middle of their skill progression.
