Welcome to… NO.1 FOR DIGITAL ARTISTS ImagineFX
Whether it happens on a walk in the park, or while looking through an online gallery, getting an idea is manna from heaven for any artist.
Reading through this issue, I realised that flashes of inspiration take work. Olly Lawson came across an idea for his video game world (page 76) in a book on gardening. Jort van Welbergen scoured interior photos of military helicopters to get that authentic look for his Star Citizen vehicle design (page 66).
When Nadia Enis hits upon a new character concept (page 72), the first thing she does is redraw it three times to push her idea even further. Even our cover artist Remko Troost reveals he always changes the way he starts a painting (page 58) to maintain his creativity and focus.
So, don’t wait for inspiration to come to you – make sure you search it out.
