editor’s letter

I keep looking at the brooding image of the woman on the cover and ruminating on what her story is. Who is she? Is she good or evil? Maybe she’s regal and lamenting the loss of power in her kingdom. I find her unique and engaging, and that’s what makes great characters. The story of how this cover came about is an unusual one for us. We saw Ramón Nuñez’s sketch online and asked him to work with us on making her our cover star. He gives a glimpse into this process as part of his huge tips workshop on page 64. He was perfect to work with – thanks Ramón! I really enjoyed seeing a pottery workshop in the magazine for the first time. Vicky Stonebridge’s faerie houses are gorgeous. I…

LOCATION: US MEDIA: Photoshop WEB: Trung, aka Klegs, is a student in California. He started creating digital art two years ago, mainly because he wanted to paint fan art of his favourite characters. 1 PORT “I have little experience painting traditionally so I thought it would be interesting to reproduce watercolours digitally. It was a good learning experience.” 2 UNDERGROUND CITY OVERVIEW “This piece follows a girl and her journey through many different landscapes. I’ve often thought about how beautiful cities would look if humans lived underground.” 3 OCHAKO URARAKA “This was a fan art piece for the recent show called Boku Hero no Academia. The main goal of this piece was to get a bit more practice with a couple of watercolour digital brushes” 4 UNDERGROUND TOWN SHOP “This piece explores an underground city from another perspective.…

LOCATION: Poland MEDIA: Photoshop WEB: 1 HEATHER FAIRY “Autumn is my favourite season. I like the musty smell of old leaves; the rustle whenever the wind blows. And I’m pretty sure there’s someone you can spot among the blooming heather flowers this season.” 2 JUNO “This is the mender Juno from The Banner Saga. I imagined her as powerful but balanced with the world she lives in. She understands the song of the wind and she hears the Godstones whispering.” 3 THE SKY IS FALLING “Painting this was painful. I looked for a simple visual message, and here it is: the lonely girl, searching for shells in a dirty puddle. You can clearly see footsteps around her, but she’s all alone.” 4 THE CREST OF TALON “I painted this because I wanted to work on my book…

LOCATION: Germany MEDIA: Photoshop WEB: 1 KAZE NI NARU “This means ‘become the wind’ in Japanese. I like the poetic idea of becoming something else after life; here, I wanted to depict someone witnessing this moment.” 2 SORCERESS “I started in black and white, painting only the shadows. I combined tones using the Smudge tool, and left the lighter areas transparent. Then I painted light underneath this shadow layer. I was pleased with how everything turned out.” 3 YOUNG REBEL “Playing with Color Dynamics in Brush settings is an easy way to introduce variety in an image’s hue and saturation. It’s a good trick to make the colours vibrate and add energy to a painting.” 4 TRACKING DOGS “Here’s a world where humans could domesticate dinosaurs. Who wouldn’t want to go hunting with raptors instead of spaniels?” Email…

LOCATION: US MEDIA: Photoshop WEB: 1 PASSAGE “I wanted to show a group of warriors passing over terrain where a battle had long since passed, in search of their own history.” 2 STAIN “This piece was a major step for me: it was one of those pieces that just flowed out of me more easily than any others. The painting appeared in Infected By Art Vol. 4.” 3 FLOODS “I love characters that aren’t afraid of the dark. Although the light is fading on the swamp, the character isn’t losing confidence. The shadows should be afraid of her.” Email your submissions t…
