En­vi­ron­ment spe­cial please!

ImagineFX - - Imagine Nation -

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?
