Welcome to the sneak peek of July's issue of 2dartist â€" issue 103! To kick things off, we have two excellent interviews with artists both at the exciting early stage of their careers: Andy Walsh who talks about the transition into digital art; and Houston Sharp, who shares how he mastered his signature style for painting portraits.

Concept artist Thomas Scholes, known for his work at Disney Interactive, Futurepoly and Motivarti, opens up his sketchbook to show how he explores ideas at an early stage in an abstract style, while also providing techniques and inspiration.

We also have two project overviews from masters of their craft. The first is Clonerh Kimura's mecha girl, Anna, who also graces our cover this month. He gives advice on adding definition, color and lighting effects. Digital Art Master, Serge Birault demonstrates how he painted his image, Alexandra Potter and Tentacle, as part of our sneak peek into Digital Art Masters Volume 8

As always, we also provide in-depth tutorials covering a range of subjects, such as building up your custom brushes with Donglu Yu; altering the time of day in your image by changing the lighting and mood with Nacho Yagüe; rendering line art into a polished cinematic illustration with Even Mehl Amundsen; and creating fire and smoke effects in Photoshop with Markus Lovadina.
