I've just renewed my subscription to DA for a second year. When I first started receiving the magazine, I thought a lot of the articles were directed towards newer artists, and I felt a lot of the info was stuff I already knew. But as I read more closely, I found that even though some of the topics appear very basic, there are plenty of nuggets, tips, and tricks to be gained that can help even someone like me who has been in the design industry longer than I care to remember. As a Photoshop, Illustrator, and Painter user (and a bit of a recluse as well), I'm always able to find something useful in the pages of Digital Artist magazine, and I find the work of many artists featured in the mag inspiring.
I am also pleased to see more coverage of traditional art techniques
