Calling all aspiring video game artists! This month we'll be showcasing the talents of some of the industry's greatest concept artists, along with an exclusive look at the creative process behind Ubisoft's long-awaited Assassin's Creed 3. Concept artist Remko Troost painted our stunning cover of protagonist Connor Kenway, with a special workshop demonstrating how the image was created.
Looking to make your hero fall? World of Warcraft artist Slawomir Maniak is on hand to demonstrate how even a clean-cut hero can become a twisted villain. Guild Wars 2 artist Hyojin Ahn teaches you how to create an eye-catching character fit for a fantasy saga, while Mike Corriero explores how to capture emotion with composition and colour. We've also got workshops exploring mechs and environments, along with a special interview with Gears of War concept artist Shane Pierce.
