Dig­i­tal be­gin­nings

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - ImagineNation -

Love the mag­a­zine – it’s been an es­sen­tial part of each month for me over the past eight years or so. I have an artis­tic back­ground – a BA (Hons) in fine art – but I don’t have a clue where to be­gin dig­i­tally. Yes, I’ve bought a tablet and the soft­ware, so when I saw on the Let­ters page re­cently that you in­tend to in­tro­duce more sec­tions for begin­ners I thought, “Fi­nally!” So here’s to a new year, new be­gin­nings, and a new medium. Cheers! Colm Lan­gan, via email Beren replies: Hey Colm. Firstly, thank you for stick­ing with us for eight years. It’s true, plans are afoot for more en­try-level con­tent on the dig­i­tal side. Pro­cre­ate, ArtRage and a tablet are a great start. Have a look at Min Yum’s tu­to­rial on page 70 for some guid­ance on us­ing Lay­ers, Ad­just­ment Lay­ers and Photoshop’s colour tools if you’ve got the big gun soft­ware... Off the top of my nut, is­sue 131, page 70, is worth check­ing if you’re get­ting started in dig­i­tal. It’s also worth us­ing the video con­tent along­side the tu­to­rial pages to see ex­actly what soft­ware moves the artist is pulling off. See page 6 for more about those re­sources.
