In this month’s issue, we’re going to the movies with Ken Barthelmey (The Maze Runner) and Iker García Santander (Justin and the Knights of Valour), as they share their thoughts on the industry and experiences from the world of film.

We’re also happy to be trying something new with our Spotlight feature, a versatile space for different kinds of 3D artists and their projects. This month, we’re proud to feature traditional sculptor Jonathan Payne and his extraordinary clay creations. They’re pretty unsettling – you’ve been warned!

There’s an exciting variety of tutorials and resources for you this month: clay sculpts in ZBrush, landscapes in Vue, texturing in 3ds Max, and Jahirul Amin taking us back to basics with a brilliant walkthrough of the human body’s bony landmarks. Borhan Chou treats us to a look behind this month’s cover image, Flamenco. How on earth did he make that dress? Read on to find out…
