If you’ve ever wanted to master the macabre or breathe life and a touch of humour into the dead, perfect rotting flesh or create a classic horror comic cover, this issue of ImagineFX is for you.
Gleaming inspiration from the supernatural and maggot-infested, we start the issue with a workshop of French pin up artist Serge Birault’s bespoke cover. We’ve also got the incomparable Colin Fix to take us through a zombie ape creation, whilst comic artist Fiona Staples pays gory homage to classic horror poster art. If you’re still hungry for more, this month’s Q&A is replete with the finest gruesome art know-how, from painting severed limbs to angry boils.
We speak to the Dungeons and Dragons artist Todd Lockwood, and look through some of his most iconic artwork. Emrah Elmasli shows the benefits of limiting your colour palette in his fantasy landscape workshop, and we put the spotlight on award-winning rising star Tyler Jacobson. There’s also over eight hours of video advice on our free DVD, and the usual free software trials so you can start bringing the gore straight away!
