Accompanying this month’s beautiful faerie cover art are two workshops with very different approaches to the fascinating fantasy characters.

Hamburg-based illustrator Bente Schlick takes us through the making of her striking cover image, from sketch to final painting, whilst folklorist and faerie artist Marc Potts gives us his top 21 tips on creating informed faeries of a more pagan-inspired ilk.

We speak to the master of the loose line Tommy Lee Edwards about his work for Star Wars, Batman, Harry Potter and Doctor Who, and look at the sci-fi art of bright new thing Dan LuVisi.

Davi Blight also explains how to create an original demon concept creature for the games and film market, Peter Han takes us through 10 essential tips on creating amazing futuristic weapons and Jesse van Dijk visualises a giant, complex robot on an epic scale.

The DVD has plenty of nature brushes and textures to accompany the cover faerie workshop, as well as a sample of Gnomon’s Designing Creatures in Photoshop with Aaron Sims, plus loads more.
