Painting With 3D

Lesson 3 in Concept Art Hacks

Lesson Information

This time, Steve will start by setting up a 3D image using Modo and Octane, giving you tips on all different aspects of his 3D workflow. This will then be rendered and sent to Photoshop for a paintover. This Lesson also includes a special bonus painting in addition to the main piece, offering as many ideas as possible for how to implement this style in your own work. 

3D Paintover

Using the 3D and rendering software of your choice, light the scene graphically to match your original sketch. Paint over the 3D image using the ideas previously discussed.

Extra Credit
