no.1 for digital artists imagine fx

Another month and yet another stellar line-up of artists just for you this issue. I really think this might be our best video games issue yet. First up, the incredible Raphael Lacoste from Ubisoft took the time to discuss his visionary craft on Assassin’s Creed Origins, as did Bungie’s Jesse van Dijk on his beautiful vistas for Destiny 2. Each workshop comes from a fully fledged video games artist who’s employed in the industry today. Elsewhere in the issue there’s also insight into how artists work in games studios. I had a great time curating the themes and artists who helped me put this issue together, so please let me know what you think about it. I really love hearing from you. Finally, why not make it your New Year’s resolution to…

LOCATION: Malaysia MEDIA: ZBrush, Photoshop, SketchUp, 3D-Coat WEB: THE PLACE TO SHARE YOUR DIGITAL ART 1 MECH BAY “This painting was created using interesting silhouettes in a flat black. I changed the tone of the shapes to create the illusion of depth of field.” 2 DOCKS “I wanted to recreate a cityscape seen in Blade Runner. You can’t go wrong if you try to copy Syd Mead – he’s a bona fide visual futurist.” 3 SPACE NINJA “This one is inspired by manga artist Masamune Shirow. I used a 3D model as a base, and painted on top in Photoshop. I added textures and lights from photos.”…

LOCATION: Philippines MEDIA: Photoshop, Daz 3D, Maya WEB: 1 PREPARE FOR BATTLE “This was interesting because it was commissioned to serve as a writer’s inspiration for his story. He was very detailed with the elements required, but I still had fun arranging them in this epic manner.” 2 DRAGON WATCHERS “Inspired by Dark Souls and Game of Thrones. I really pushed myself with this – it was a rare chance for me to make something personal at this level of detail.” 3 MEGARAH “I entered this for a contest at the website Cubebrush. It’s more stylised than my usual work; I’ve always wanted to copy the style of the splash pages of those popular games.” 4 LILITH “For a while I’d wanted to paint something that deals with themes such as mortality, humanity, innocence, or whatever message…

LOCATION: Poland MEDIA: Photoshop, Maya, Mudbox, Unreal Engine WEB: 1 AN UNEXPECTED MEETING “This young girl is meeting an extraordinary mythical being. She doesn’t expect what she finds. I wanted to create a place that looked real, but also felt magical.” 2 CATHERINE “I was keen to try to capture the effect of classical painting – the colour palette refers to the Dutch masters. I think the study of classical painting is very important.” 3 ORC FEMALE “She’s a hunter, a killer and she goes to war. This character is well defined by the classic movie quote: ‘I may be bad... but I feel gooood.’” 4 ELF ARCHER “This work shows a portrait of a forest elf. As a big fan of fantasy and The Lord of the Rings, I often draw such characters.”…

LOCATION: US MEDIA: Photoshop WEB: 1 THE DANCE OF THE HUITZIL “An ancient spirit summons the fallen warriors from the afterlife to guide him into the promised land of Aztlan. This is inspired by an Aztec myth in which warriors reincarnate as hummingbirds known as huitzil.” 2 THE LAST FAREWELL “A woman walking through the ruins of her old life receives an unexpected visit from an old friend, for a last farewell and a new beginning.” 3 A MONSTER CALLS “‘Conor held tightly onto his mother. And by doing so, he could finally let her go.’ (Patrick Ness). This is fan art of one of my favourite films of 2017, A Monster Calls.”…
