What’s in June 2022 CP Magic!
The featured artist is Victoria Manser. I’m sure you’ve seen her beautiful horses and other animals.
Victoria has found many ways to express her creativity, and she talks about her life as an artist. Her work is very realistic, as you can see in this cover image (left.) But her goal is not photo realism. Does that surprise you? It did me.
Meet her and hear all about her artistic journey.
Her tutorial is a “high- definition” mini demo showing you how she draws such stunningly realistic fur. The tutorial is on Pastelmat, so if you’ve wanted to try this textured art paper, this is your chance to do a small study.
You know what?
It’s also a great opportunity to try your hand at drawing fur if you’ve never done that before. If you have drawn animals before, Victoria’s tutorial will help you draw more realistic looking fur.
