Welcome to the December issue of 2dartist magazine!

We’re rounding off the year with a mix of sci-fi engines and exoskeletons, rural and regal fantasy lands and a collection of works from some of the brightest and most prolific artists of the past year..

Adorning our cover for the final issue of the year, we have the work of Framestore’s Matte Painting Supervisor, Jason Horley. Jason has worked on some of this year’s biggest cinematic releases, including Gravity and 47 Ronin. This issue he shares some of his industry knowledge with us, along with his cracking portfolio!

Also inside you’ll see how Albert Ramon Puig created his incredibly detailed 80s-inspired exoskeleton. Enjoy!
