Art in­ferno

ImagineFX - - ImagineNation -

I’m 16 years old and I’m writ­ing in to send you my dig­i­tal art­work in the hope that I might see it printed. I love your mag­a­zine, I find it in­cred­i­bly use­ful and it’s great to see so many tal­ented artists.

I’ve drawn for as long as I can re­mem­ber. I love do­ing fan­tasy art­work and draw­ing preda­tors, es­pe­cially big cats, for their un­par­al­leled strength and sin­u­ous move­ments. I’ve been do­ing dig­i­tal art for three years, and I started out on Painter 11 be­fore mov­ing on to Pho­to­shop CS5. I’m in­spired by mu­sic and my love of movie sound­tracks, as well as TV se­ries and books. My draw­ings are there to ex­press how I feel; my art­work is my out­let. I en­joy it im­mensely and I’m al­ways look­ing to im­prove.

I’ve at­tached some draw­ings for you. In­ferno is my most re­cent one, and also took the most time. I adore draw­ing fire, and I wanted this dragon to look like a beast straight from hell. I tried to give his scales a rough tex­ture to make him look an­cient. My favourite part about this was do­ing the translu­cent skin in his jaw, through which the fire is glow­ing and his veins are il­lu­mi­nated.

Mother of Dragons is in­spired by Game of Thrones. Daen­erys Tar­garyen is my favourite character; I love and ad­mire her sense of moral­ity along with the ruth­less­ness she some­times dis­plays. It was also the first time I tried to draw lips ac­cu­rately. Lizzie Free­man, via email Claire replies Lizzy, your email is the kind of email I love! I adore when read­ers send in their art and re­veal what com­pels then to paint. You’ve got great po­ten­tial, so keep at it.
