This issue we have a brand new series which gets off to a brilliant start, Portraiture. Creating portraits is a common subject in any form of art so we thought we would show you how to paint a portrait from a Photograph, without doing a paintover. The one and only Daarken kicks off the series with a fantastic self portrait.

November will always be known for its fireworks and explosive excitement, well the November issue of 2dArtist is no exception.

We will start by having a quick overview of this month's interview which is with the amazing Ignacio Bazan Lazcano. Ignacio is a regular contributor to the magazine, and I am sure many of you have been blown away by some of his fantastic images, but in this month's issue we go a step further and learn a little about the man behind the art. Ignacio has had a really interesting route into the CG industry, even to the extent that his first job involved creating concepts with crayons on paper!

Many of you will bee familiar with this month's Making Of artist Gediminas Pranckevičius (that isn't a spelling error, but a very bad joke!). There was a real buzz (really I have to stop!) in our forums about his amazing image Wasp Woman Returns, so we thought we would get him to show us how he created it. 3D was used heavily as a base to create a scene in perfect perspective and Gediminas shows us how he used this base to create an image with a real sting in it.

This month's cover image is by a really great artist, who is constantly churning out great image after great image at the moment Min Yum. Min continues our Painting Creatures form Folklore series by dealing with a Siren. The final image is a real treat, and Min does a great job with the tutorial to, so this is a must read!

This month we have a brand new series which gets off to a brilliant start, Portraiture. Creating portraits is a common subject in any form of art so we thought we would show you how to paint a portrait from a Photograph, without doing a paintover. The one and only Daarken kicks off the series with a fantastic self portrait, and shows us how to tweak an image to ensure you have the correct shape, without having to re-paint anything.

Our Concept Art for Games series has been a real master class in concept art so far, so as we move onto accessories we thought we would invite another big hitter in the field of concept art to show us through to the end of the series. Craig Sellars takes on the task of creating vehicles to navigate the harsh terrain of the volatile prison planet, and sets the ball rolling with a prison transport vehicle.

Custom Brushes for Sci-Fi moves from the realms of space to an underwater environment this month as Ioan Dumitrescu shows us how to create brushes for an underwater sci-fi scene. Ioan has been a busy guy this month as he has been working hard to set up Behind the Iron Curtain, but he still found time to share some great tips with us!

This issue is brimming with great work and this is no exception in the galleries and Sketchbook. Concept art group Blakvolta show us some of their sketches, and the gallery features work from Serge Birault, Branko Bistrovic, Kashubo Ivan and Keun–ju Kim.

This is a real fire cracker of an issue!
