Get those creative gears in motion with our Steampunk special
There's been something of a steampunk revival over the past few years, and so this month we take a look at some of the greatest contemporary artists experimenting with the style.
If you're not already familiar with award-winning artist Edward Howard, now's your chance; his elegant sci-fi masterpieces are not to be missed.
We've also got several steampunk themed workshops - our cover artist Steve Argyle gets things off to a flying start with his mechanical dragon workshop, exploring how to combine 2D and 3D elements together.
Meanwhile, Michael Dashow demonstrates how to create a steampunk character with a feisty attitude, and Mark Molnar shows you how to fuse your inspirations together in one eye-catching piece.
As ever, there's plenty more to inspire you; we explore the extraordinary creative mind of fantasy legend Adrian Smith, along with several other workshops to get those creative juices flowing.
