It’s getting spooky!

As the fall season approaches, days are getting short and creepy little creatures will soon knock at your door for “trick or treat”. Monsters, mummies, and dark creatures, but also superheroes and sci-fi characters have even made themselves at home in this Airbrush Step by Step magazine issue: Cover artist John Seaton from Australia took a cue from the fantasy novel and Netflix series „The Witcher“ and created a morbid scene with the main character Geralt of Rivia. Spanish artist José Guerrero Hueso will show you a simple but effective freehand design of a mummy portrait in his how-to. With the two US artists Jessi Madera and Kevin Wood, we even feature extraordinary experts in the field of fantasy and horror. Automotive painter Jessi Madera is telling you about her artistic preference for macabre and horror subject matter along with the feminine figure and sexually suggestive undertones. Professional illustrator Kevin Wood will give you an insight into his work for Warner Bros. and DC Comics, creating collector’s items and licensed artworks featuring the world’s most popular fantasy characters.

Chilean artist Sebastian Arenas will lead you in the world of science fiction, showing you how to create a female portrait in an interesting “Tron”-like, neon light ambience. Fantasy woman portraiture is also the topic of Spanish artist Luz de la Calle, but with a different approach: Capturing human feelings and fears in an image is the basis of her fantasy artwork featured in this issue.

And finally, you should not miss to take a glance at the amazing winner artworks from the Sparmax International Airbrush Contest 2022. From fantasy to realism, automotive painting to modelling – all artists did such an amazing job in their chosen category, so winning was so well-deserved for all of them.

We hope this issue will give you lots of inspiration for the upcoming fall and Halloween season. Have a creepy and creative time!

Greetings from the Airbrush Step by Step team
