    I can see it now... inside the back cover, a big offer to go to art school, if you can use ArtRage to paint this pirate, or that cartoon character, or...

    Actually, I've seen some really good books on western comic character design, and there are a glut of books on manga styling. Now there are books which are specific to character design principles for video games.

    At my stage, I'm just happy for books on anatomy and the basic principles of animation.

    Halley...check out http://store.doverpublications.com/0486436411.html

    There are quite a few INEXPENSIVE anatomy guides for artists here. You may also want to check a local college bookstore for an outdated Greys Anatomy or similar medical reference books.

    This is a decent reference site I found online http://www.characterdesigns.com/inde...page=photosets

    With a little exploration you could probably find some more

    Halley, I couldn't agree more.

    But, the mag does feature all sorts of anatomy lessons and art techniques/skills that will, in my opinion, help out artists of all levels.

    The ArtRage workshop in issue 10 spawned from Francis Tsai's (www.teamgt.com) idea of using it as a digital sketchbook with a graphics tabelt/tablet PC. Not because we're trying to get people to run before they can walk...

    The idea of ImagineFX is to help artists find their direction. Not teach them how to paint pirates - although the techniques learnt in a workshop about pirates can inspire them to try new things if you catch my drift.

    Cheers!

    Hi Rob,

    Back in February, Andy asked me to put some stuff together for your mag.
    Nobody made contact so it never reached you.

    May I take this late opportunity to present you with the ArtRage Editorial Sword.
    (Yes I know the date's wrong. ops: I was concentrating on painting the greasy label.)

    Hi Rob. Welcome to the forums!

    I think you missed my EMail offering you a chance to play with the Beta of ArtRage 2.2.
    AndyRage's mantra for graphics engine code:
    "Sure - how hard can it be?"

    Hi guys - good to be here.

    I must say, ArtRage is just a beautiful app. Andy, I would love to check out the beta - I can't recall getting that email.

    Phil, er, thanks! Do you mean submit some work for our galleries/workshops etc? If so, drop me an email at rob@imaginefx.com (sorry if I've got the wrong end of the stick, but it's late here and I've had a tough day).

    Anyhow, look forward to being around here more often and checking out the cool ArtRage work.

    Cheers!

    Woot! its Rob the editor. Welcome to the forum 8)

    The thing with magazines over books is that they are upto date with the latest technology. True, the most important stuff are fundamentals like anatomy and perspective but you also need to know how to actually get those ideas in your head onto the canvas/screen.

    I will do some art good enough to get into fxpose some day :wink:
