Hello everyone, so Issue 2 of The Illustrated Fantasy Artist! (Now renamed The Figurementors Magazine – Fantasy Edition 2) is here! We have taken the feedback and in our opinion created an even better issue. We have also introduced a degree of interaction by creating hyperlinks in the Table of Content. This means you can go straight to your favourite article/s. This magazine has it all covered, composition, painting realistic skin tones, achieving strong visual atmospheres etc. Therefore, there really is something for everyone!
We are really proud of this issue and are so thankful to everyone that has made it happen. Figurementors firmly believe that this magazine can go on to become an invaluable resource for figure painters of all levels.
FIGUREMENTORS MAGAZINE – A CHEAPER, MORE FREQUENT PUBLICATION!
In the past month or so we made every issue of both magazines the same cover price as our new, updated magazine. All full issues are now priced at £4.99! Any figure painter can improve their artistic skills by reading Figurementors magazines. You will learn from top fantasy and historical artists in every issue. Each issue is aimed to inspire and teach. With that in mind, there is every chance you can learn something new from our Historical Editions too.
We also have a Facebook Page and Group for Figurementors. We are always trying to find ways to engage with our audience and provide inspiration and support. So we would truly like to hear from you all about our products and activities. You can, therefore, leave feedback and suggestions at the Contact Us section on the site, through Facebook etc. If you have the time it would also be super helpful for you to leave a recommendation on our Facebook page.
CONTENT, CONTENT, CONTENT!
In The Figurementors Magazine Fantasy Edition Issue 2 we have a very special article written by Slayer Sword winner Pawel Makuch. Sorrow Hill also dominates our cover. To set the bar higher we have an interview with one of my favourite painters of all time, Martin Goumaz! We undoubtedly have a host of the best articles by top names. In addition, subjects cover everything from achieving smooth female skin tones, sculpting and even comic-style painting with Marc Chee.
We carry on our collaboration with the online gallery Putty & Paint. We present an expose about the Facebook group Eavier Metal’s Monster Mash painting competition winners! From community support to award-winning design to insightful articles to help you become a better painter! We truly do have something for everyone! Let’s go!
