Paint winning card art with the help of ImagineFX

Card art marries the two disciplines of painting fantastic-looking art, and making it work in an area of just a few square centimetres. Anna Steinbauer, this issue's cover artist, paints for Magic: The Gathering and passes on a few tip and tricks in her workshop. Matt Zeilinger's cyberpunk-themed workshop is straight out of Fantasy Flight's Android: Netrunner TCG, so he knows how to make cool art work on a small scale.

There's more: we've got an exclusive look at Magic's latest desk, Shadows Over Innistrad, Alex Jay Brady (opens in new tab) combines 3D with 2D tools to paint a futuristic vehicle, Ross Dearsley applies a concept art approach to his illustrations, and we pore over the delights within Rodney Matthews' sketchbook.
