Thanks indeed for your great feedback and I am happy you like magazine:)

Which part of magazine do you like most? If you don't mind me asking

Great magazine, it would be brilliant to have printed issues. I signed up for the back issues and the 6 month subscription a few months ago and having read all the issues I would have to say that I like the interviews the best. I like to hear about what people are doing, what inspires them annd how they got where they are today.

Bit on the thin side this issue though.

Hey wrin-Zoo mags any chance to buy some older mags too? Can't find them on your site :-(

I didn't found the time to read all stuff in the mag but the interviews are really interesting. Also the tutorials are great to see some others workflow, thanks.

For someone who may not see this June Issue:

Artist Interview:
We talk to 2 artists this month, Very different from each other in many respects. One male, one female, one student and one professional . Vinegar and Kim Taylor gives us both sides of the industry from their very different perspectives.

This month we are full of tutorials for all. Digital painting rules this month with creation of King Kong by Adonihs, Pier Duty by Graven Tung shows us a completely different style. 2D Artists&3DCreative Resident artist Richard Tilbury with Alyn Hunter and Adonihs show us the finer point of digital painting Fire, Smoke and Explosions in the continuing elements series.

Making of:
3 this month, the hilarious ‘So, you really think I am fat….’ From Deniela Uhlig, ‘ Lord Frederickson’ by Dominus Elf (with a rather interesting look at creating character back –stories) and another Digital Art Masters Exclusive ‘ Masquerade’ by Egil Paulsen.

Thanks for being our great fan Xdreamer79! Curiously, Have you had a chance to read the magazine yet? It would be great to hear what you think about it ...so we will know how and what need to be improved and make magazine better!

I subscribed recentley and can say I had my doubts about online mags, but this one is excellent. The history of Matte painting is a treat. I reckon a competition would be good, for some subscribers.

08-02-2006, 08:15 AM
Thank you, Warin. Nice to meet you here :)

08-16-2006, 05:31 AM
Hey Warin! :) Cool. I must get that next issue...my subscription just ran out. History of matte painting sounds pretty awsome :) The Hogfather thing is coming along very well at the moment. Tons of work though. :) Still, its fun! Its gonna be good.... we got some awsome filmed backplates to work on! :D

i bough your 2d and 3D mag every month .. really professional mag, i'm french and it's really hard to find paper mag for professional people in shop there are only basic mag like computer art ... thx for your work and long life for your pdf-mag ...

09-12-2006, 07:04 AM
I have signed up for both the 3D and 2D versions of your magazines several months ago. My only concern so far is delivery dates? There dosen't seem to be a firm date set up for either download? If I am wrong please let me know what those dates are. Otherwise these magazines are of excellent quality.
