welcome to… no.1 for digital artists imaginefx

Welcome readers! You can’t help but notice that this month’s issue is an explosion of fantasy art’s finest creators and genres! Inside the mag, you’ll discover the skills behind the art of your favourite role-playing games, card art, fantasy board games, video games, miniature makers and more. I’ve had a riot putting this issue together for you all. For one, I’ve long been an admirer of Tara Phillips’ work and am so glad we finally got to work together on a cover. I’m also always flabergasted by the artistry that goes into making the art for a Magic card, so gaining insight into the process from art director Cynthia Sheppard was a real boon for me.

Daniel Ido LOCATION: England MEDIA: Photoshop, ink WEB: www.danielido.com Daniel always starts in line work, and loves using vibrant colours. “My work is a mix of things I like, ponder about, and art I actually finish,” he says. Aaron Wolf LOCATION: Australia MEDIA: Photoshop, Illustrator, pen, graphite powder WEB: www.awolfillustrations.com Aaron grew up in a once-quaint town that fell into disrepair, surrounded by stunning landscape. “It’s this juxtaposition of natural beauty and the modern cancerous sprawl that I bring into my artwork,” he explains. Filipe Pinto LOCATION: Portugal MEDIA: Photoshop, 3ds Max, SketchUp WEB: www.filipepintoart.com Filipe only discovered art in the entertainment industry about four years ago, but when he did he dropped everything else. “I love to create new worlds, new stories and imagine all the possibilities,” he says.

the new stars behind magic: the gathering

“We went into M19 with a goal of evoking classic fantasy that a wide variety of people know and love” For the first time since 2015, Wizards of the Coast has released an annual Core Set of cards for Magic: The Gathering. The 2019 set is out now and it’s bedding in with players as they get to grips with some very in-your-face creatures and spells. It also contains some exciting imagery and a selection of work from new artists to keep the fantasy card game’s main themes as fresh as ever. Over the past few years, M:TG sets such as Amonkhet, Ixalan and Dominaria have focused on settings and narratives based around historical and mythological themes. There have been pirate and dinosaur invasions, Egyptian-style gods and vampiric hints of horror. Core…

How did the Dominaria gig come about? A couple of years ago I took a step back to focus on levelling up my skills. Magic art director Mark Winters was kind enough to offer constructive critiques of the work I was creating during this time, to try and help get me over the finish line. At some point the work I was showing him must have hit the target because I said he would put me on the roster for the next set! What was the brief like? One of the things I most enjoy about Magic is the awesome style guide for each set. Mark told me to use some of the guidelines to create a stained glass knight image that fit in the world of Dominaria, and we wanted the frame…
