welcome to… no.1 for digital artists imaginefx

Hello there! One thing I loved reading about this issue was how collaboration is key to producing great works of comic art. So many artists within these pages spoke with admiration of their partners in crime; their collaborators and companion on a piece of work. Most creators in the comics industry are wellversed in working closely with others, whether it be with the writer, penciller, inker or colourist. To successfully do this takes a lot of interpersonal work. Artists have to quickly forge close working relationships with others and trust their partner to help them get to the end result: great art.

He uses the architecture and atmosphere of each environment to establish the story. 1 CORE “Architectural elements and ships lead the viewer’s eye to the core of the city. The monochromatic colour scheme adds to the mood in this dystopian cityscape.” 2 CITY RIG SYSTEM “The focus here is the rig system.

how to overcome perfectionism

When it comes to creating art, there’s a distinction to be made between a ‘perfect’ image and one that’s ‘complete’. A piece of work can be said to be complete for a number of reasons: for example, it fits a role for a client or explores a technique that an artist wanted to experiment with. Achieving perfection, on the other hand, is invariably more demanding and time-consuming. That’s because perfect art has to live up to the expectations of perhaps the toughest critic: the creator themselves. For Atlanta-basesd illustrator Nuri Durr, the desire for perfectionism became not only an obsession, but a hindrance to his growth as an artist. And it turns out that he wasn’t alone. A DANGEROUS OBSESSION Taking to Twitter, Nuri recently shared his struggles with perfectionism, and how completing…
