I have the April 2007 issue. Its' not bad. The format of the magazine is comparable to ImagineFX. This issue was pretty evenly split between Painter "how to's" and painting technique. A bit thin on interviews, but I assume those will come later. It'll be interesting to see how successful they will be, focusing on a single program. ImagineFX covers them all, Painter, Photoshop, 3D apps, etc. ImagineFX also has some well known digital artists contributing regularly. The resource disc was okay, but again, ImagineFX has a headstart on them there, too. Painter Mag asked for my permission to include some of my brushes on a future resource disc (I agreed.), so I think they realize that a big part of these publications is providing tools, references and interactive tutorials.

I bought my copy from the magazines website. It cost me a little over $20 U.S. I was browsing the racks at Borders last week and saw that they have begun carrying Painter Mag, so I won't need to order future issues. I believe that it was going for about $15 U.S.

Hope this helps!
