Hope you are all doing well out there!This week was an exciting one with a brand new article release by the lovely Rachel Noy, so let's just dive straight into that.

NEW Article - How traditional can enhance the digital

So we have another amazing article addition to our site, this time done by the lovely Rachel Noy and she will take us through how she does her personal work and how traditional art is a big influence on how she tackles her personal work. In addition to this she also does an amazing job of breaking down the art fundamentals that helped her in constructing these beautiful scenes, so make sure to check it out!

More mentorship slots opening up!

So some people have been asking if there we're some more slots opening up for the monthly mentorship sessions, and I've got some food news for all of you!

In addition to the 4 slots I already had, I'm going to open up 2 additional slots for the next month (and possibly going forward as well) but these slots will firstly be announced to all my patreons, so I'm not sure when and if there are still going to be open spots. Also in addition to this, I've refined the structure and will continue to do so, and with this there's also a small change of price that comes into play too!

Hope to talk to some of you real soon in these sessions!

This week's patreon vote brings us back to an earlier featured artist from a long way back, Carl Shedd.

However, this time he's back with a different piece, showcasing a combination of nice lighting and the rest of it is mostly composed out of props from asset packages. A reminder here is that this doesn't discredit the work that Carl put into this piece and just shows focus on the things you love to do.

I really like this piece myself because the lighting plays so nice off all these nicely detailed props and also just because there are so many little details in th storytelling and it makes you wonder who the person is behind this scene. Really nicely done Carl Shedd, thanks so much for inspiring so many of us with your amazing art!

All right people! That's going to do it for me for this week, I'll catch you in the next one!If you like these posts or if the tips are useful consider supporting me on Patreon and join all these other lovely people in getting access to the full Tips and Tricks compilation on:
