ImagineFX issue 42
Imagine FX magazine

Cave dwellers come hither! It’s Watchmen time, and to celebrate ImagineFX’s new issue is sporting a world exclusive Dave Gibbons cover with an accompanying workshop by the Watchmen artist.

Whilst Dave takes us through the creation of his Rorschach cover, we look at the history and influence of the genre-defining comic in an eight-page feature, with insight from Watchmen colourist John Higgins and film concept artist Scott Lukowski.

Elsewhere, meditate on the ‘zen of abstract art’ with Massive Black’s Andrew Jones, create a dramatic sci-fi environment with Mike McCain, a classic sci-fi landscape with Bill Corbett, and find out how to get more emotional impact in your painting with Bao Pham.

As ever, this month’s DVD is full of goodies, with two fantastic comic creation suites and workshop files from all the above and more clocking in at nine hours.

Ladies and gentlefolk, welcome to the Watchmen issue.
