With the lifting of restrictions across the world we’re very excited to announce that ImagineFX magazine is back on the newsstand! And what an issue to return with, because we are taking a look at how to be a happy artist. We speak with a group of professional artists who explain how they find happiness and wellbeing in their work. It’s an uplifting read.
Elsewhere in the magazine we celebrate the artists who not only inspire but also actively add positively to their work. We’re sure you’ll agree that our cover artist Ejiwa ‘Edge’ Ebenebe fits the bill with her gorgeous and colourful painting. Isn’t it amazing?
Also inside, there are character design tips, Blender workflow advice and a stunning feature on the artwork from The Last of Us Part II. We also continue our quest to find the Artist of the Year - make sure you submit your work. PLUS we’re giving away a 164-page ImagineFX Annual book worth £6.99, which has over 20 hours of pro video tuition.
This issue is on sale in the UK today and will reach overseas in the coming weeks. If you are still not venturing outside, please visit our online store to order your copy for home delivery. See below for more information on the digital and print options available to get hold of ImagineFX.
