Hello and welcome to the August issue of 2DArtist. In the spirit of the 2012 Olympic Games, which is currently in full swing, we have put together some winning tutorials that will help you develop your own skills!

Let's start things off by taking a look at the fantastic image that adorns the cover of this month's issue, which was created by the talented Patipat Asavasena for the final chapter in our manga series. To wrap things up Patipat demonstrates the workflow and painting techniques he used to create his manga interpretation of the Native American warrior, Geronimo.

We have also reached the final installment of the brilliant building droid series. This series has supplied a myriad of invaluable advice and knowledge so far, and this month is no exception as Carlos Cabrera rounds things off with his cool pleasure droid design. Sit back, relax and take a look!

We kicked off our new series, Six Realms, last month, which explores the limitless worlds and different realms within these that are created by talented artists and designers. In the second chapter, Dennis Chan takes us through his painting process for the Arctic realm.

Richard Tilbury and Simon Dominic Brewer bring our painting mythology series to a close in this issue, with their interpretation of Ittan-momen, a ghostly phenomenon from Japanese folklore. Richard tackles the subject in Photoshop, whilst Simon talks us through his process in Painter.

We also bring you a Making Of in the form of a video game concept by talented artist Xavier Etchepare. He shows us how to set the mood, utilize reference photos and use little effects to add that final touch.

So we've got another fantastic issue fit to bust with must-see tutorials, but that's not all - we also have an interview with exceptionally talented concept artist Brian Sum, an insight into the mind and sketchbook of freelance illustrator and character designer Jose Gomez aka ‘The Chulo', and if that wasn't enough, a stunning gallery featuring the work of Cristian Popa, Ray Jin, Alexey Egorov and many more!
