When you are so excited about every article in the magazine it is hard to know where to start, but I think I will kick things off by talking about this month's jaw dropping cover image by Serge Birault. Serge has done an outstanding job throughout his Pin Up tutorial series and we have all learnt a lot, but sadly all good things come to an end and in this issue Serge wraps things up in style. I guess it is good to leave on a high and Serge does this with probably my favorite image of the series so far.

EDITORIAL

Obviously every issue of 2DArtist is special and full of outstanding work, but this month's issue raises the bar yet again with some of the best tutorials and artwork that I have seen in the magazine since I have been here.

When you are so excited about every article in the magazine it is hard to know where to start, but I think I will kick things off by talking about this month's jaw dropping cover image by Serge Birault. Serge has done an outstanding job throughout his Pin Up tutorial series and we have all learnt a lot, but sadly all good things come to an end and in this issue Serge wraps things up in style. I guess it is good to leave on a high and Serge does this with probably my favorite image of the series so far. But it's hard to be too disappointed as next month we will be starting a new series by David Smit that I know you are going to love!

We will stick with the tutorials for now and talk about the stunning Tribal Warrior that Branko Bistrovic has painted for us. Branko is a busy guy and has just started a new job at Ubisoft, but he still found time in his schedule to whip up an outstanding illustration of a Native American. Branko always does a great job for us and this tutorial is no exception. I am sure you will all find a few handy tips in this one, and I know you are going to love the final image.

Matte painting is a tricky subject and requires you to master a lot of different skills to come up with the best results. Piotrek Swigut is however giving us great detailed advice as to how to do this and in this issue he will be showing us how to start adding Photo's to your concept painting.

Our Character Portrayal series was kicked off in style last month so there is no surprise that this month's tutorial comes with another fantastic image, this time by Jason Wei Che Juan. Jason talks us through the unique features of a child's face and tells us how to use this information to create a cool illustration of a child. This series is a really handy series, particularly if you are into character design.

I am sure you will agree that the tutorials in this magazine are outstanding, but there is so much more to this issue than the tutorials. I have been very self-indulgent this month and caught up with one of my favorite artists Maciej Kuciara. If you are unfamiliar with his work prepare to be dumb-struck by the paintings he sent in to accompany his text.

This month's Sketchbook also features work from one of my favorites, Ian McQue. Ian is a talented guy working for Rockstar North and living in Edinburgh, Scotland. Ian's work is definitely unique and in his sketchbook he shows us where all his fantastic ideas start.

The Making of this month is another cracker by Dan Crossland and the gallery features stunning work by the likes of Ivan Kashubo, Jama Jurabaev, Shaddy Safadi and many more, but don't take my word for it, go ahead, get stuck in.
