The Enchanted Forest team are a group of 14 fantasy artists and illustrators from all over the world, gathered by myself (Jodie), also a practicing artist! Tired of seeing generic and uninspiring 'how to' art books in stores, I've decided to publish my own - an A4 size thread-sewn softback filled with a wonderful variety of fantasy art and a comprehensive selection of tutorials! My end goal is to create a book that will inspire artists and art lovers alike!
Inside The Enchanted Forest you'll find over 130 pages of traditional and digital art; featuring woodland elves, witches, mermaids and other high fantasy beings! In addition, there are 28 pages of exclusive tutorials covering a variety of topics from digital painting, copic marker and traditional media to illustration prep, colour theory and much more!
Prototypes of the The Enchanted Forest have already been printed - we now need your help to fund a full run of books!
Each artist has an 8-page section of the book, which includes a collection of illustrations, their exclusive Enchanted Forest images and a 2-page art tutorial.
For everyone interested in the art-making process, we've lovingly put together 14 unique art tutorials from our featured artists: these tutorials have been written especially for the book and can't be found anywhere else! Take a look at some highlights:
In their Enchanted Forest tutorial, Eli Baum highlights the many ways you can use color theory to enhance your images, draw attention to certain aspects and tell a story with your art!
