welcome to… no. 1 for digital artsts imagine fx

I’m honoured and excited to share our latest issue with you. It was incredible to work with the legendary Kim Jung Gi on the cover art. I asked him to create something that represented a world of artists creating art in a myriad of ways: digitally, in VR, or with a pen or pencil. I even got him to sneak in a copy of ImagineFX. This illustration represents your world and I sincerely hope you love it as much as I do. As always, I strive to fill each issue with new skills. In the coming pages you will learn new techniques ranging from Autodesk SketchBook concept knowledge, to new ArtRage and Krita insights. My aim is for you to be the best artist that you can be! Starting this month is…

Pierre Santamaria “A friend once told me it was obvious I’d rather live in the worlds I created,” says illustrator Pierre of his artistic approach. “I’m attracted to colourful yet dark science fiction.” LOCATION: France MEDIA: Photoshop, 3D-Coat, KeyShot, Modo WEB: www.artstation.com/pierresantamaria 1 TITAN’S PORTAL “My first attempt at a book cover. It kicked off the story for my personal project about space colonisation. Every planet in the solar system can be reached via these portals.” 2 THE BEGINNING OF THE END “The main character looks back to the first days of the war, watching as her father leaves to embark on a senseless bloodbath. The sky is set to dawn to capture her mood.” 3 RETURNING HOME “After having explored a lifeless and deserted planet, a tired soldier returns home. I tried to depict how lonely you would feel…

LOCATION: Sweden MEDIA: Procreate, Photoshop WEB: www.pinktofuart.me 1 LETTING GO “When I created this I was trying to improve my storytelling. It’s also one of the first animated paintings I made, which you can view at my website.” 2 A WELL-DESERVED REST “Creating this was such a calming experience. Painting can be a way to take a break from reality and just get lost in the world you’re creating.” 3 THE KOI POND “This is another version of an older illustration. It’s nice to be able to recycle your art sometimes when you lack inspiration. This redraw eventually became one of my favourite pieces.” 4 FLOW “In this piece I was really inspired by old Japanese paintings. I take a lot of inspiration from how they’re painted, especially natural elements such as waves, clouds and trees.”…

LOCATION: US MEDIA: Photoshop, ZBrush, Unreal Engine 4, Cinema 4D WEB: www.artstation.com/noe-leyva 1 THE DAM “In this desert planet scene a guard observes a convoy arriving at the gate with precious cargo. I used some 3D as a base and rendered in Unreal Engine 4.” 2 ENT GROUP “I’m a big fan of Tolkein’s The Lord of the Rings and wanted to create my own collection of Ents. I enjoyed playing with the different types and shapes.” 3 RED PATH “Part of a sci-fi story where the protagonists escape an opposing force. I wanted to portray a colourful and cramped street, full of lights and characters.” 4 THE FUNERAL “This was inspired by Mesoamerican culture. A funeral procession is headed towards the palace. The painting is part of a larger story that I want to develop.”…
