Explore Katsuya Terada's erotic fantasy art
エロ×メカ features Katsuya Terada's erotic illustrations.
As a kid, Terada would practice drawing erotic pictures for himself to enjoy. As least that's what he said in his afterword in the book. Since then, he has moved on to mixing fantasy and surrealism into his drawings.
This is a 104-page hardcover artbook that comes with a thin cardboard slipcase.
The images are explicit so this isn't a book you want lying around at home with kids or in the office on your table. There are naked women, and naked fantasy women, and making out scenes.
The art is great. Terada really knows how to draw his ladies. There are the simpler pin-up style illustrations, and also many fantasy ones usually involving some kind of mechanism, such as a mechanic arms that appear from behind, wires, robot parts and other devices fixed onto you know where.
The artworks are a mixture of sketches and full coloured paintings. The sketches are just as detailed, but without colour. Selected pieces also come with commentary from Terada, in Japanese and English text, talking about his inspiration.
Good book for those who like erotic art.
