Well I hope you all had a great Halloween and have been enjoying munching your way through all your treats, or still laughing about your tricks. November is here, the nights are darker and firework season is upon us. There is no need for us to wait until the 5th of November to get things off to a bang though, simply flick through this month’s explosive magazine!
Our cartoon animals series has been great so far, with many of the fantastic images making their way onto the cover of the magazine. This month’s cartoon animal is no exception.

Alex has done a great job of talking us through both technical and artistic decisions and in this final chapter of his series he will doing more of the same as he talks us through creating a snowy, mountainous scene. There is no need to be sad though as next month’s we will be replacing this series with a great set of tutorials about Topology.
