CONTENT, CONTENT, CONTENT!
In The Figurementors Magazine Fantasy Edition 5 sees us rub shoulders with some true giants in the hobby along with some others who for different reasons deserve to be featured in our pages. We interview Ben Komets and marvel at his photo gallery We get some gems of wisdom from Allan Carrasco and I interrogate and analyse Alfonso Giraldes and his new book A Colorful Mind. We also have debut content from Hi-Wook Ko and Sylvain Aubut, who both in differing styles create strong ambience with two very different busts. Kristian Simonsen returns with part 2 of Hobby Basics, this time moving through the process of sketching, shadows and lights. We also have an in-depth write up by multiple Golden Demon, Slayer Sword winning Richard Gray. In this issue of the Figurementors Magazine, we have something for everyone! Let’s go!
We also have our usual regular features too. The Figurementors Magazine Fantasy Edition 5 sees us focusing quite a lot on ambience and the use of saturation and contrast to create effects. It is also an issue that I believe shows that everyone can teach someone else and everyone can learn from others, regardless of their level.
