Elements Workshop - Setting a Mood

A new workshop, graphically designed in the Imagine FX Style, is complete and ready to download in the WORKSHOPS section on In this workshop I go through the thoughts and processes behind "Message in a Bullet", a full colour rendering of a line illustration found in the pages APOCRYPHA, where I explain the importance of establishing a mood, dramatizing the environment and adding the right accesories to a character to take it from an illustration to a concept design. You can download the free PDF HERE or by clicking the image below.
