Hello and welcome to the February issue of 2DArtist! I hope you had a good January. How many of you have been sticking closely to your New Year's resolution? Any of you given it to chocolate or avoided going for that early morning run yet? Well if you're looking for a worthwhile distraction to keep your mind off your vices I would strongly recommend this month's 2DArtists which is full of inspiration and advice!
The obvious place to start when discussing this month's magazine is the stunning cover! I bet your jaw hit the floor when you saw Blaz Porenta's stunning re-imagining of the story of The Three Little Pigs. In this month's issue Blaz continues our fantastic Illustrating Fairy Tales series for us by talking us through how he added narrative and back story to his fantastic image. I am sure that you have all enjoyed this series so far and the final images from the tutorials have been breath-taking, the last part of the series is no exception. In next month's issue Blaz talks us through his painting of Hansel and Gretel.
In this month's issue we wrap up the final chapter of the Designing your own World series with David Smit and Nadia Karroue. This series has been a real insight into how to create and develop your own projects. In this issue they show us how they turned their fantastic hippie characters into a cool full color comic book. In next month's issue we have a great new series about creating 2D animations!
Last month was finished our short series about using 3D to create cool vehicle concepts which means that we get to start our amazing new series about Designing Droids in this month's magazine. In this series our artists will be showing us how to approach designing droids as if you were doing it for the games industry. This means that they will not only talk about the design and painting of the droid, but will also show us how to create drawings which can be given to a 3D artist to help them create games characters. In this month's issue Alexander Iglesias gets the ball rolling with a cool Recon Droid.
I hope you all enjoyed the first installment of our Painting Creatures from Mythology series. It is really great to see how two different artists interpret the same brief. This month Markus Lovadina and Simon Dominic Brewer continue the series by showing us how they interpreted the brief for the Lord of the forest; The Leshy.
What a great set of tutorials! As if that wasn't enough, we also have an interview with the amazingly talented B. Börkur Eiríksson, a Making Of by Li Biao and a cool sketchbook featuring the work of Daniel Daya Landerman. This amazing quality of art is carried through to our gallery which features work by Ioan Dumitrescu, Bruno Hamzagic, Phuoc Quan and many more stunning artists!
