We explore the fantasy potential of Art Nouveau in issue 78, as seen in the stunning original Marta Dahlig cover image inspired by Alphonse Mucha.
Inside the Polish painter takes us through how she created it in a fascinating step-by-step workshop, plus in our legends feature we talk to an array of contemporary digital artists to find out why Mucha is still a source of inspiration to them.
Our gaze falls on the upcoming digital talent of Blaž Porenta, of his epic panoramas and devilish takes on fairytales. Don Seegmiller demonstrates three methods for blending colours in Photoshop while painting a rather strange girl walking her pet spider. Remko Troost works through a classic fantasy image without the usual digital shortcuts, and Sean Andrew Murray goes for a mixed media look in his workshop.
