Game changer

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Imagine Nation -

I just want to congratulate you all on de­liv­er­ing such amaz­ing art­work and help­ful fea­tures as you do. I was more into fan art for so long, mostly comic­style su­per hero stuff to begin with, but then I picked up a copy of the Game of Thrones is­sue from last year, and I haven’t looked back.

My whole ap­proach to art has changed com­pletely. Where be­fore it was blocky, thick-lined comic doo­dles, I’m fully on a quest to learn to paint dig­i­tally. I’ve even set up a new de­viantART ac­count, be­cause I’ve re­alised my work is now so dif­fer­ent it seems like a dif­fer­ent artist al­to­gether. But it re­ally has to be said that it’s thanks to you all for the huge lev­els of in­spi­ra­tion I find in ev­ery is­sue. I would likely be still drawing the same generic doo­dles in­stead of the de­tailed stuff I’m work­ing on now. Neil Gar­diner, via email Claire replies Neil, it’s our plea­sure. We’re glad to have helped you get in­spired. I just wish you had sup­plied your de­viantART page so we could see your work. Thanks so much for writ­ing in.

More paint tools!

First off, thank you for such beau­ti­ful, inspiring and help­ful mag­a­zine! So far I’m only a hob­by­ist artist and fo­cus­ing more on 3D mod­el­ling, with the aim of work­ing in the video game de­sign in­dus­try. The mag­a­zine has been a great in­spi­ra­tion to me and has given me help­ful tips.

Sec­ond, I’m sorry if this has been re­quested be­fore or has been fea­tured in an ear­lier is­sue, but I was hop­ing if you’d find some­one who works with Paint Tool SAI and could put to­gether a work­shop for us read­ers. I know the in­ter­net is full of tu­to­ri­als, but a work­shop from a pro­fes­sional would be great.
