Issue 91 | July 2013
:: Back ::

If you don’t know where to start when it comes to designing or you just want to brush up on adding depth to your work, then July’s issue of 2DArtist is for you! Our vibrant tutorial section this month is filled to the brim with character designing delights to guide you through the process of creating your own characters.

Whether you want to discover how to create and paint villains to a games brief, which Charlie Bowater covers in the design of the character Moonshine, or learn how to tie your character into a narrative with the addition of costume and accessories like Takumer Homma does in his step-by-step painting guide to magical outfits, this issue is on hand to provide you with everything you need to know.

New this month is the first installment of a six-part series covering the creation of a fantasy world by YongSub Noh. In this first chapter this talented artist covers tips and techniques to create and digitally paint a fantasy character to fit into your fictional universe.

Alongside these great tutorials, we have an insightful interview, a project overview of Landscape Speedpaint by Byzwa Dher, an evolutionary character tutorial and, as always, visually stunning work from some of the most exciting names in the digital world. An issue not to be missed!
