The brand new issue of Digital Arts is now on sale -- where we've taken the opportunity to get a little bit saucy. Pick up this issue now to discover how to make art that's classy, sensual and fun.
Creating sophisticated sexy imagery is one of the most difficult of artistic traditions. The line between tease and sleaze is as thin as silk, and it only takes a simple slip to turn a captivating piece into something that’s distastefully sordid or – perhaps worse – just leaves you cold. In our feature in this issue, the world’s masters and mistresses of alluring illustration reveal their methods and techniques, so that you can bring them into your work. You’ll discover that there are many approaches to using sex successfully in artwork: whether humorously or seductively, or a playful mix of the two.
Follow our guide and you’ll soon be creating bewitching artworks that exude sensuality. Just remember to bring a sense of mischief to the drawing board.
Also in this issue you'll find tutorials by some of the best artists on the planet covering character art, digital painting, album art design and lighting effects – plus learn about Adobe's brand new tools for creating iPad apps in InDesign.
You'll also get your hands on £300 of high-res stock images and some amazing vector artworks too!
