Welcome to the 23rd issue of 2DArtist magazine. We have a jam-packed issue for you this month, including not one but three artists giving their individual interpretations of our Speed Painting Challenge topic! Turn to page 93 to see how the very talented Emrah Elmasli, Mike Corriero and Mikko Kinnunen have all tackled the brief, “The citizens of the flooded city now resided in the tallest buildings connected by makeshift bridges”. Also, don’t miss Anne Pogoda’s latest instalment on page 118, where she teaches us “how to paint lips worth kissing”! (Be sure to check out Anne’s previous tutorials for 2DArtist in our back issues 19 and 20, where she taught us how to paint beautiful hair.) We have a special feature on the ingenious new Infinite Oz website, which is well worth a look on page 49 (be sure to see the website, too: http://www.scifi.com/tinman/oz/). It’s pretty much inspiration all-round this month, with four great interviews with a diverse range of artists, plus so much more! So get your Wacom out and start painting!
