How-To Draw the Animated Nexus by Steve Rude


Steve Rude and Mike Baron created the character of Nexus, someone who could be seen as both hero and villain, made to kill those who were killers themselves.  Now, Steve Rude marks the 40th anniversary of Nexus a new Kickstarter campaign for his updated version of the How-to Draw Nexus book, first published in 2006, as a way to promote his longtime goal of seeing Nexus as an animated series.


Nexus - The Animated Series Promo (unreleased)


With this new expanded edition, along with its modified title of How-to draw the animated Nexus, you’ll see many of the same model sheets from the previous volume, now in color, with added comments as to their creation, the same spiral-bound format to make drawing from it easier, and the many new additions fresh off the animation table. 


To date, there is still no TV series, but we are told one company has an option for it. And if there ever is…? Rude’s two minutes of completed animation along with model sheets, layouts, and storyboards contained in this book would certainly be the blueprint for it.



Reserve your copy on Kickstarter now before the campaign ends this week!
