Hello and welcome to the February issue of 2DArtist! I hope you all had a great January and 2013 has been an artistic year for you so far. In this month's magazine we have lots of inspiring work to get your creative juices flowing.

This month's cover image was created by Chase Toole for the final instalment in the interesting and detailed Creating Custom Brushes tutorial series. This tutorial series has seen our artists demonstrate how to create an exciting variety of custom brushes, then use them to detail parts of a character. Chase rounds the series of by demonstrating his use of custom brushes to paint a Spanish period drama girl.

Brand new in this issue, is the first part of our Off-World Vehicle Design series. In this series our artists will be approaching the given brief as if it was for the games industry, to demonstrate techniques used when creating a vehicle concept. Matt Tkocz kicks things off with a cool speeder vehicle.

We continue with the Designing New Worlds series, which takes a comprehensive look at creating a world from a concept perspective. Gerhard Mozsi investigates the processes and techniques that can be employed to create an extraordinary society, from the initial idea through to the finished image. In this installment, Gerhard focuses on creating a residential landscape for his world, concentrating on the mood and atmosphere, whilst exploring how to use light to create drama.

In other news, Ignacio Bazan Lazcano concludes his two-part Seaport tutorial about how to draw a complex scene by discussing and demonstrating the use of color and digital painting; we catch up with creative director and freelance concept artist Marcus Lovadina (aka malo) to find out about his background in art, creative process, influences and more; and Aekkarat Sumutchaya gives us an insight into the painting process for his macabre manga image Kitchen Killer, which you may remember from the September 2012 issue's gallery. To found things off, we also have a brilliant sketchbook by the imaginative Sean Andrew Murray and a gallery that features some awesome new artwork from some of the best in the industry. Enjoy!
