Making the most of your earnest art New Year resolutions, ImagineFX is offering a bevy of new art skills to kick off 2010.
With a light, striking colour palette, Randis Albion’s exclusive cover art sets the standard, with a look at the artist’s route to his final image within. We look at essential skills you need in using colour and light with Pixar lighting director Jeremy Vickery. Then there’s all you need to know about implying detail in a painting, with Thomas Pringle’s workshop.
If you’re in a reflective mood, we’ve acquired the help of CG Society’s Robert Chang to offer his top 10 ways to becoming a better artist, but if you just want to kick back and draw a massive fantasy thug, follow Vinod Rams as he designs a placid titan.
This month our free DVD has 10 hours of new video workshops, there’s the next in the series of Charles Bernard’s videos, and Painter 11 & Photoshop CS3 trials… All you need to put your best digital foot forward in 2010.
Jeremy Vickery: Having worked on WALL-E and The Incredibles as lighting director, Jeremy tells us all we need to know about colour and light in this fascinating tutorial.
Daniel Conway: With this remarkable image as payoff, Daniel takes us through the process of creating great digital art without endless layers and complication.
Thomas Pringle: Block in overall shapes and lighting while implying details with Danish-born freelancer Thomas.
Sparth: Not many people can pull off a monosyllabic alias, but with his amazing, architecture-inspired art to back him up, Sparth does it with style. We talk to the groovy French art man.
FXPose: This month we've scaled the far reaches of the world, including Devon, England, to bring you the finest art out there.
