April issue of ImagineFx magazine saw another me lucky enough to have another two entires in the Q&A section on show.  I had time to cobble a vidcap together for each of these - and I use the word cobble advisedly.  I'm not your slick movie maker and you need to be prepared for a god deal of extraneous waffle, which reflects the way I tend to work anyhow.  May issue is already out on the shelves and one of the vidcaps has been released (or maybe it just escaped . . . ?) onto the the IFX Youtube channel.  It relates to the image shown here and is using ArtRage 3.55, in case any of you are interested or have a thing for waffle.

I've been knocking about the children's book publishing market as a full-time freelance illustrator since 1982, when I tunneled out of college. Switched from being a traditional watercolourist to digital about the turn of the century. Still learning and always will be.

Preferred software are ArtRage3 Studio Pro, Sketchbook Pro 2010 and Painter X. I still think in real media terms, and these are the closest to it I've found. The words old and fuddy-duddy definitely apply - dammit.

Some of my published work is listed here on Jacketflap -

You work is just overflowing with charm, and telling so many stories. You should totally do a visual novel app or art for a game!

Just watched the Imagine FX Artrage watercolor tutorial, really good tips there on workflow issues I've beeng struggling with lately, even for people using other software to paint like Photoshop. Thank you very much :)

Thanks for taking the time to let me know Hakepe.  Glad if it helped.  Love ArtRage software. 

Not for the watercolour so much as I'm using the the oil brush more, but there should be another couple of vidcaps for the Q&A section of the IFX mag coming in the month or so (issue 109 according to the commission).  Pretty waffley and not so instructional - talking more about the topic of the specific questions. Not allowed to say more at this stage until they're out unfortunately.

Thank you for the tip and for gathering the tutorial links to your DA site. Very helpfull :) Been trying to develop a solid illustration process from traditional scetching with a pencil to digital oil/watercolor. Still a work in progress but slowly moving forward.

Wow! One of my biggest art inspirations here on dA!
Your works have kept me up late at night as a child, with a torch under my blanket I use to spend hours looking at your fantasy pieces and hoping I could draw like you one day <:
Thank you for being such an inspiration! Keep up the amazing job, I look forward to seeing more from you 8D

Many thanks for such a nice comment GemFeathers. A bit worrying to know I my contribution to a publishing project may have kept you awake at night - here's hoping that lost sleep did you no harm.

We all draw in different ways and that's what makes it so great. Variety everywhere you look and loads to love. Just keep at it and enjoy yourself - that's the key.

Best,
Nick
