In this series of tutorials we will be discussing how to integrate our 3D into a 2D environment to create a complete illustration in Photoshop. We will be discussing techniques that will allow integration of 3D renders into a 2D environment. We will also be discussing composition and how to set up a strong illustration. This course will be covering balance, flow, rhythm, and many other techniques that will help us build a solid and balanced piece. Continuing on, we will be discussing layer techniques and how we can use them to support our designs and illustration.

Introduction and Project Overview Hello! My name is Tyrus Goshay, and I am currently working as a Senior Artist for WMS Games in Chicago. I've been working in the design industry for over ten years with companies such as Disney Publishing, the Marketing Store, Cartoon Network, and most recently served as a Game Design Program Chair. In this video, we will be discussing how to seamlessly blend your 3D into a 2D environment. We'll be covering composition and the steps that help create a solid piece of art. Along with several different tools that you can use in Photoshop to create a cohesive final piece for production. We will be covering the steps such as composition, creating flow, rhythm, dominance, and a few others. We will also be discussing techniques for layers such as how to create a Smart Object properly, using your clipping masks to support your artwork, how to use layer options to also support 3D artwork and to create the perfect blend of art. By the end of the tutorial, hopefully you will have additional tools for building strong portfolio pieces. So see you in the next lesson.
