I thought Imagine FX went under. Are they back in action again? They were a very cool magazine.

Don't know that. I've got the last two issues from a friend, in digital version. But it's so good to see that AR is taking up more space in a world dominated by Photoshop and Painter, without gliding into tehnical gimmicks/in&outs. For me Ar is more about fun than anything else.
U can do stuff with znd dollars worth instruments,... or u can do stuff with whath you got, but enjoying it...

A piece of wood, a sharpened screwdriver, a small pocket knife, some old sandpaper and fun... A reproduction of the parental house, a much apreciated gift for my wife's uncle (that lives in Australia)

Thanks for providing the link, Orkhan! Orkhan, you are so right regarding photoshop and Artrage! I've got the feeling also that Artrage is used by another kind of people who are nearer to the world of art. Digital painting in photoshop is more about Matte paintings. I know some people (artists who do Acrylics and oils) who say that digital art is *not" art, but they refer to photoshopped digital art.
As far as I know ImagineFX is still alive - they've got a facebook fan page running, and I ordered one digital copy of their magazines.

Never heard a rumour that IFX was in strife!

ImagineFX is headed for its 100th issue soon and is going from strength to strength. It's by far the best magazine about digital painting and drawing out there in my opinion, dealing as much with artistic criteria as with technical considerations. Yes it is rather biased towards fantasy, pandering to a youngish market section, but the information and advice can be applied pretty much across the board. So even if the style and subject of the art may not necessarily appeal, there is gold in them thar pages . . . .
Yes there is too much about Photoshop and Painter, but some of us are trying to balance that when we can. And if you read the tutorials a lot can be applied through ArtRage even when that's not the software being used for the demonstration. Latest issue actually has a review of AR4 with notes and a painting from the excellent Jon Hodgson.

I've subscribed since the first issue, never missing a single one. The word you are looking for here is 'saddo'.

ImagineFX is good, I believe it was Digital Artist/Fantasy Artist that went bye-bye. After issue 39, they stopped making that magazine. Aside from Photoshop, ImagineFX is the only remaining digital art periodical in general circulation, I get it through Zinio for my Galaxy Note.

They also have a youtube channel, which kind of accompanies the magazine. Some of the videos are without words, so they are bit difficult to follow if you haven't got the magazine, but other videos are proper tutorials with voice.

Wonderful art experience. A real joy ride. Thanks for the link Orkhan and thanks Nick for the video. Was very illuminating how you work back and forth. It's as if watching someone working clay, and out of your head too. Clever concept for the title, "Fancy a Dunk". :D:D:D
