Noth­ing in­spir­ing

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

Just to say that the high­light of the post is usu­ally re­ceiv­ing my copy of Imag­ineFX, so I was quite dis­ap­pointed in this month’s is­sue of ex­plo­sive en­vi­ron­ments [Imag­ineFX, is­sue 139].

As a bud­ding en­vi­ron­ment artist I was await­ing great things in this is­sue, and sadly through­out the en­tire mag­a­zine I have found noth­ing in­spi­ra­tional or mo­ti­va­tional. This is quite rare to hap­pen, in fact I don’t re­mem­ber a time when I was com­pletely unin­spired. I don’t feel there was any­thing that grabbed my eye. This is­sue just feels like it’s lack­ing some­thing that’s usu­ally there, no ques­tion. An­gela Hosk­ing, via email

Claire replies Oh dear, I’m so sorry to hear this. In the is­sue you speak of, I per­son­ally loved the epic en­vi­ron­ments fea­ture, and I adored the work of Maxwell Boas and Os­car Grege­born. I’m also a big fan of Coro, who gave us a tra­di­tional art work­shop.

I hope this edi­tion fares bet­ter for you. Ev­ery is­sue we de­liver dif­fer­ent themes to get your cre­ative juices flow­ing, so if you say that you’re a bud­ding en­vi­ron­ment artist, you may not ini­tially think that there’s any­thing in this manga is­sue for you, but hope­fully you’ll see beyond the art and take ad­vice from the teach­ings.

Even show­ing work from some of the best en­vi­ron­ment artists around wasn’t enough to float An­gela’s boat.
