1. Rooftops, Rockets and Adventures Beyond by Marek Denko, Volume 9

Collecting references is one of my favorite elements of the process. I spent hours and hours in total browsing through Google and Flickr images for inspiration

2. Inner Search by Ioan Dumitrescu, Volume 9

Concept designer Ioan Dumitrescu painted this canyon-like corridor using Photoshop and it became the ninth volumes cover image!

I always try to challenge myself with new compositions, designs and ideas

Using Photoshop and 3ds Max, this imaginative design was Gediminas Pranckevičius visualization of perpetual motion and mans desire to create.

Within ones imagination, images arent defined, holding infinite possibilities which are instantly tangible

Inspired by the universe of Hayao Miyazaki and the bath house of Spirited Away, Jean-Michel Bihorels The Train Station was constructed using Maya and Mudbox.

The idea was to illustrate a fantastic, dreamy place that I wish existed in the real world

5. Baroko by Blaz Porenta, Volume 6

Blaz Porentas incredible landscape was part of the design for a project by the Slovenian alternative rock band, Siddharta the artist had to create 13 wide landscape illustrations, one for each song and the cover.

My biggest challenge in this project was to capture the soul of each song by choosing which allegories to use to portray the lyrics and what colors best suited the melody

6. Magical Forest by Justin Yun, Volume 5

Concept artist Justin Yuns aim for this personal piece was to create an organic environment that the viewer could imagine themselves getting lost in we think it has definitely achieved that!

When Im stuck on a painting it always helps me to work on something completely different in order to free my mind from it

7. Reaching Out by Sōnke Maeter, Volume 4

Inspired by The Tower of Babel by Pieter Bruegel the Elder and created for the theme of A Moment in Time, Sōnke Maeters masterpiece was created in Blender and Photoshop.

Reaching Out was a piece I enjoyed right from the very beginning through to the end

8. Bone Hill by Tomasz Maronski, Volume 3

Tomasz Maronski created this piece after being inspired by an interesting skeleton of a fish he had just eaten!

The goal was for it to be spectacular yet at the same time very peaceful. I like to show contrasts in my works

Andrzej Sykuts image was made for a CGSociety competition which it went on to win!

I certainly wanted to mess around with the sense of scale and, for some reason, I wanted to have airships and jellyfish in there too

10. Beast Mistress by Marco Siegel, Volume 1

Marco Siegels tempestuous Photoshop painting started off as just a wave and then developed into a picture of giant sea snakes hunting down a ship.

The whole process is a bit like doing airbrushing and/or texturing 3D objects... first youre constructing the picture and later colors and lights are added
