- Jama Jurabaev

  • apprentice

- Anthony Jones

Make your triumphant return to 2D! In this final lesson, Jama will teach you his best practices to composite, paint over, and add special effects to 3D renders in Photoshop. We'll conclude by reviewing all of the content and techniques you've learned to use in the future.



Using the knowledge you've learned throughout the course, create final portfolio pieces by building upon any of your frames from the previous lessons.

Drones, mothership, container, platforms and people are sculpted and painted in 3D coat. Backwall structure are primitives and painted in Photoshop.

Course is finaly completed. It was big amazing challenge for me. Thanks to Jama and Learnsquared for techniques and knowlege that i`ve learned!

Yay I finished the course! I couldn't upload the process here so you can find it on my Artstation. So nice to finally be able to create this image thanks to all the techniques of the course! I will be starting the Narrative Concept Art soon so i'll be back!

HD and process :

'Raven' VTOL Stealth Gunship. It carries dual railgun turrets and a conventional bombs for ground support missions.

I spent a good amount of time watching documentaries and reading up on several modern stealth aircraft to help make my intended design work.

I also took the time to design the interior of the cockpit, where one pilot can rest at a time and the location of the crew toilet. I also tried to put the 'Raven' in a location before vertical takeoff.

The various UI elements were made using wireframes of the sculpt. I had a lot of fun here, and there shall be more descriptions of each picture once I sort everything out on my Artstation.

The best class I've ever had.

Some after-Christmas practice of lessons 3 & 5. I push it a little bit above Sketch, as I wanted to 'remove-the-rust'.
I intend to use this X-wing as a part of a bigger peace, combining the knowledge from other lessons :)
