Introducing your ultimate guide to sci-fi art! This month ImagineFX has marshalled the forces of the finest sci-fi artists around the world to spell out the sci-fi art essentials in our A to Z feature. We've also invited the elusive French sci-fi and comics genius Mobius in for a chat, so you can find out about the man behind the name, his source of inspiration and how he caught the imagination of Hollywood's finest.
Syd Mead's successor Daniel Simon takes us through the rebuilding of a alternate world for Tron: Legacy. Lois van Baarle takes us through the creation of her fashionable fantasy female character in her first tutorial with the magazine, and the spectacular painting skills of Patrick J Jones are scrutinised in his epic sci-fi art workshop.
Peter Oedekoven tips his hat to the great Chris Foss in his tutorial, and Simon Dominic shows us how to speed up with Painter's tools. There's also Chee Ming Wong's cracking work on designing your own light cycle to pour over, and absolutely loads of art resources on the free DVD... Here's to the future!
