In this final lesson, you will take your rendered keyframes into Photoshop, utilizing the advanced design and composition fundamentals of the previous two lessons to create fully polished paintovers. Louis will show how to source and utilize photobash elements, control value, add post-processing and more. He will also demonstrate how to achieve various levels of finish when creating paintovers, giving you maximum flexibility in situations where clients need a fast turnaround. At the end of this lesson, you will have an entire set of hero keyframes, supporting paintovers and black and white studies.
