Fantastic! Each issue that comes out is better than the last. More people who enjoy digital art, fantasy and science fiction art should be looking in on this fun and informative little e-mag. How to sections, advice, interviews are available and the format is very easy to use. Just grab the corner and flip back the page. The artist are as varied as the work that they produce. Nice little competition for the next cover is also open to artist. The theme is pin-ups. That should but a lot of you out there at the tablet doodling away at T & A.
What do you think?

Critique by BeehiveStudio Jun 9, 2011, 7:15:36 AM
I like this Issue much better than the previous ones, the only critic I would give you would be concerning about design.

It is an arts magazine you should try to make the diagramming a little more dynamic and interesting, remember that we artists have a very hyperactive kind of mind, and we are more attracted by things that look quite interesting and unique.

You have quite an amazing concept going on in your magazine, and I am really proud of what you are doing for this community, so remember more dynamism and less empty spaces that will make your magazine even more interesting.

Keep it cool!

remember this is just a basic guide. There is alot more to composition and you could spend a life time studying that alone.

Thank you for the awesome comment (although I am sure many of my friends would disagree about me being intelligent.)

Be sure to pass on the link to your friends. The more people we can get to view the mag the more appealing we can get to sponsors and the more we can do with the magazine.

well you know what "friends" may think sometimes. Or is it maybe jealousy? They are the ones who should support you but just turn their backs. Pretty lame though.

um I was joking about that. me and my friends are pretty sarcastic to one another. It's pretty much give and take. They have been ultra supportive over the year and a half of this magazine and I would not have been able to get it done with out them :)

I gotta ask (and you've probably been asked this before) - how did you get that smooth page turning transition??? Please tell me it wasn't done in Flash, had to have been some other software, or else I'm overlooking the capabilities of Flash.

Awesome effect, enjoying the mag too.

:iconthe-phoenicorn:
The-Phoenicorn Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2011  Professional General Artist
Flash. Hahaha I can't action script to save my life (yet, I really need to study that at some point)
I use indesign mixed with a bit of photoshop to adjust the images. Although I don't have to enter reams of code it still takes along time to make each issue and I have to cut out images to near perfection and insert some 200+ hyper links.

I hope you will consider submitting some prints to the magazine (I accept most art)

Thanks, yep I'd love to contribute some stuff sometime. I can imagine the layout and design definitely take awhile.

So that page turn effect was done in Flash or somewhere else? 'Cause it's awesome, and I've known some people who would love to get that kind of effect going on their pages, but implemented in Flash if possible.

Your stuff isn't that bad. Tell you what start a sketchbook over on the artfreck forums and I will review your works personally and even give you advice on what to study and where to find the stuffs. (we run a weekly critique day)
If you do that and I see alot of improvement over the next few months I could even give you a double page spread in the magazine in a future issue.
