I just want to congratulate you all on delivering such amazing artwork and helpful features as you do. I was more into fan art for so long, mostly comicstyle super hero stuff to begin with, but then I picked up a copy of the Game of Thrones issue from last year, and I haven’t looked back.
My whole approach to art has changed completely. Where before it was blocky, thick-lined comic doodles, I’m fully on a quest to learn to paint digitally. I’ve even set up a new deviantART account, because I’ve realised my work is now so different it seems like a different artist altogether. But it really has to be said that it’s thanks to you all for the huge levels of inspiration I find in every issue. I would likely be still drawing the same generic doodles instead of the detailed stuff I’m working on now. Neil Gardiner, via email Claire replies Neil, it’s our pleasure. We’re glad to have helped you get inspired. I just wish you had supplied your deviantART page so we could see your work. Thanks so much for writing in.
More paint tools!
First off, thank you for such beautiful, inspiring and helpful magazine! So far I’m only a hobbyist artist and focusing more on 3D modelling, with the aim of working in the video game design industry. The magazine has been a great inspiration to me and has given me helpful tips.
Second, I’m sorry if this has been requested before or has been featured in an earlier issue, but I was hoping if you’d find someone who works with Paint Tool SAI and could put together a workshop for us readers. I know the internet is full of tutorials, but a workshop from a professional would be great.
Issue 108 provided Neil with the inspiration he needed to start painting digitally.
