"In these days of digital shortcuts and lightspeed deadlines, good draughtsmanship—the apex skill of almost every art—has become a rebel force fighting the galactic empire in many schools and studios. Fortunately for us, Star Wars and Blue Sky concept artist Sang Jun Lee is a sketching master, and reveals not only his hard-won secrets for creating characters and ideas out of thin air, but how much more powerful they can be when you've really truly learned to draw."
"The mark of a good character designer is the ability to infuse personality and then individuality to all the designs he or she makes. Sang Jun Lee possesses a great ability to do all that...and he draws really well. That recipe makes some tasty food for anyone wanting to study character design."
