ImagineFX issue 50
Imagine FX magazine

ImagineFX is 50 and, befitting our sagacious age, we’ve had our re-animated sci-fi fantasy brains working overtime to bring you a momentous issue.

First, get through the bag and have a look at your new IFX poster – one side displaying the most popular IFX cover, as voted by you, and the other the graceful, mystical cover art of this issue by Andrew Jones.

Inside we’re celebrating the cream of the digital art world with our definitive list of the 50 best living artists, whilst elsewhere we speak to legend Craig Mullins on his innovative career in concept art.

There’s some stunning film art from this year’s sci-fi blockbuster District 9, plus the best entries of the Digital Artist 09 competition. We’ve also got Anne Stokes creating a dragon’s lair, Peter Mohrbacher exploring the depths of the ocean and James Gurney explaining his 25 steps to give futuristic sci-fi scenes a lived-in feel.

No issue would be complete without a DVD full of goodies and this month has videos from Henning Ludvigsen and Charles Bernard, DAZ and Manga Studio models and Photoshop CS3 and Painter 11 trials, plus loads more.

We hope you enjoy this special issue, and here’s to 50 more!
