Grab your tote bags and get down to your newsagent (or alternatively take out a subscription or buy online) – the latest issue of Digital Artist is out in the UK today and beginning its journey to your local store.
Inside this issue, as ever, we’ve got a great range of styles, techniques and software for you to explore. Go geometric in Illustrator, go Expressionist in Painter, control and customise your Photoshop brushes, create amazing tactile effects and much more. And that’s not all – we interview Toby Morris about his extended illustration projects, and Sora Sabi Creative Studio about their exquisite manga artwork. We take a look at how Matt Daniels’ Squiddles brand is evolving and show you a host of awesome stuff in our reviews and in Zeitgeist. And we’ve even redesigned the way we present the disc – it now has a dinky little cardboard sleeve.
While you’re here, don’t forget our wealth of creative competitions – you can win an Oishi Doll, a copy of How to be an Explorer of the World by Keri Smith, and a standard or Anniversary Edition of Corel Painter 12. And if you’re a graduate, not only do we have the second of our survival guide features on getting a job in the industry, you can also get on Twitter and send me your freelancing questions and anecdotes (@DA_April, #freelancing101) for the chance to win one of five copies of Max Scratchmann’s essential industry bible Freelancing 101. So keep those entries coming in – you’ve got to be in it to win it!
