[Edit 14/05/2014 - cheers to wreckling for the DD selection! :w00t:]

Yes, it's finally here! And it's a monster issue, at over 180 pages and 35Mb in size!

The focus in this issue is FAN ART, its history, inspirations, and all its various forms - drawing, painting, digital modelling, traditional sculpture, cosplay, plushies, even a few crossovers and mashups. :) Whether it's books, TV shows, movies, videogames or comics, there's something in this issue for everyone.

There's also a bumper crop of interviews this issue, with DulcetEpicure boundless-mind and PlushBuddies, plus several tutorials to help you push your own artistic skills. Plus a special culinary art feature and lots of other treats. Enjoy!

Many thanks to all of the artists whose work is featured this issue - brace yourself:

Excuse me, how do I download this?  I'm trying to find the link but I can't seem to locate it.

Top right corner of the page, underneath the row of sharing buttons, there's a big button marked 'Download'. :)

Although dA will display PDF files directly on the page, the viewer is fixed in size so you won't get to see the artwork in the magazine at its best. :doh: Plus, it's a largish PDF so would take a while to display in full if viewed online.

I am pretty sure it was through your work being featured in DELVE that I came across it - and now, funnily enough, I actually help out with the text editing. Funny how these things turn out... :D
