IFX celebrates 75 years of the Caped Crusader

IFX magazine issue 109

It's Batman's birthday. The Caped Crusader is 75 this year and IFX is celebrating by showing you how to sharpen your art skills and break into the comic industry.

Not only does the latest issue explore the dark art of the Dark Knight, but artist Mukesh Singh (opens in new tab) also demonstrates how to create an action-packed fight scene and comic book artist Ken Lashley (opens in new tab) shares the secrets behind the gritty, textured cover.

Elsewhere, the Kubert School (opens in new tab) shows you around its hallowed halls. Go on a tour of Bob Eggleton's (opens in new tab) workspace and DC. And Marvel artist Simone Bianchi's (opens in new tab) opens up his sketchbook to give a masterclass in composition.

There's also all your usual favourites: a 16-page section dedicate to traditional art; the latest news from the fantasy art community; digital and traditional art FXPose galleries; and many more workshops and Q&As. You'll find a ton of assets available to download or, along with video workshops, watch on the private IFX channel.
