Fantasy & Sci-fi Digital Art – Imagine FX (June 2011)
I found this magazine very useful because it offers visual clues about lighting, features like octopus tentacles (pg. 11) as legs would have been a great pirate concept. Invasions are not a good thing and having abnormal bits on pirates would be really effective. The magazine also demonstrates concept art and how to create the atmosphere by simply arranging and aligning the position of the subject. Page 69 shows a goth like females dress in black net with a hand held fan. This is also a sub-genre of steampunk and was helpful when I was creating my designs. Page 88 demonstrates how to do the lighting and shading to make the painting seem more real.
