Environment special please!
I grew up wanting to be a full-time illustrator, but despite some native drawing talent I never properly learned the fundamentals of anatomy and perspective, and so I would always find myself frustrated.
I studied screenwriting at university, but I happened across an ImagineFX anatomy special a few years ago which reignited my passion for drawing (the issue’s falling apart from so much use!), this time with a better understanding of the basics of anatomy.
I’ve learnt a lot from ImagineFX and the specials, but one area I still struggle with is environment design and perspective. Would you ever consider publishing a comprehensive special on these subjects? I’m sure I and many others would find it as useful as the anatomy specials! Keep up the good work as always. Liam Kelleher, via email Claire replies Hello Liam, thanks for writing in. I’m glad the anatomy special editions inspired you to return to drawing. I’m not sure we’ll do an entire special based on environment design, but I’ll definitely try to find a few workshops that will help you improve these skills.
Liam Kelleher calls for more environment workshops, such as this one from issue 108. What do others think?
