So, a brand new year now stands before us – could this be the time to try something new?
UK folks! Get out of the snow and enjoy the warmth of a mechanical dragon! Issue 92 is on sale now and it's filled with expert advice on everything from manga art to steampunk and background painting.
Steampunk has made a major comeback over recent times, and this month we take a look at several incredible artists that experimented with unique interpretations of the style.
Steve Argyle gets the proceedings off to a flying start with his mechanical dragon cover image, and you can discover how to incorporate 3D into your illustrations with his special workshop.
We've also got an unmissable Steampunk workshop from Michael Dashow, who explains how to create a feisty female character with a retro twist.
There's new tutorials on painting and lighting a manga heroine, advice on designing a believable sci-fi vehicle with Jan Urschel and we have tips on painting three distinct backgrounds for the same characters using Corel Painter.
There's plenty more to inspire you; we explore the extraordinary creative mind of Adrian Smith (and no, he's not in Iron Maiden), we also interview Edward F Howard about his extraordinary traditonal and digital robot paintings, along with many other features to get your creative juices flowing.
Don't forget that along with our shiny text-free covers, print subscribers can now access our brand new Premium Area, the only place you can download back issues of ImagineFX for free!
