Introduction and Project Overview
Hi everyone, my name's Saad Moosajee, and I'm a freelance digital artist and graphic designer based in Providence, Rhode Island. I'm currently working on projects for Advanced Photoshop magazine and collaborating with the Rhode Island School of Design. In this course, we are going to create a painterly illustration from 3D objects. Some of the key takeaways from watching this course will include learning how to create dynamic abstract renders, manipulating the shading of these 3D objects using Photoshop, using multiple objects to build a stylized form, creating a believable environment for our objects to live in, and learning how to create objects that have a flat graphic and painterly approach. By the end of the training, you will have learned how to use 3D and 2D together to create a unique mixed media illustration. I'm excited to work with Digital-Tutors and share these valuable tricks and techniques with fellow artists, so let's get started with the first lesson.
