    Imaginefx...

    So I just found out that a subscription to this great magazine is 73.45 British pounds...I live in the U.S., so I go to this currency conversion site thinking it wouldn't be that bad, only to find I'd have to dish out 137 bucks for a year's issues, and I haven't got that much money at all...Not until I got a job anyway.

    My dear mother is very frugal...you know what now. Gah.

    Anyways, what do you suggest? Just save up? If I try to save stuff it's going to take a long time if I wasnt a tablet as well.

    Crap, I started this medium thinking it wouldn't be as costly as paints but now this comes at me, lol. I was thinking of just buying older issues off ebay if there are people selling, do you think I should or are the newer issues alot better?

    Do you really need it at all? I mean sure its great (I assume), but If I had to pick between a mag with tutorials (which you can find on here for free (maybe not the same ones but you know what I mean) or a tablett / paints....hell, its the tablet for me!!

    Get the tablet, silly. A magazine is no good without a means to practice your art. :-)
    I think you are awesome, and I wish you the best in your endeavors, but I am tired of repeating myself, I am very busy with my new baby, and I am no longer a regular participant here, so please do not contact me to ask for advice on your career or education. All of the advice that I have to offer can already be found in the following links. Thank you.

    Bookstores usually get rid of unsold magazines, so get a friend that works at a bookstore and ask him if he could get 'em for ya.
