Anyway, to get to the point...I've never (surprisingly) ventured into the bonus cd's nicely tucked in the back of the magazine but I did today and I felt like I had discovered Blackbeard's treasure! There are figure reference photos on there! Tooooooooooooooons of them! I've been needing to do some serious figure drawing catch-up practice and this is perfect! Of, course, I immediatly ran to all my other magazines and started feeding them to the computer like a maniac. I can't promise the photos are on every single one, but they were on mine so far and I am so siked to start drawing n#$%d people in my sketchbook. Yay! For those of you who have already discovered the joy of texture overlays on your digital work, there are free textures on the cds too!
Oh, I forgot you might not know what the magazine is about. It is concept art focused. Of course, it delves into all kinds of other disciplines but that the spoke of the wheels are usually the process being building characters/environments/etc...
A really good read!
Just never- EVER- spill coffee on mine!
