In this tutorial, we will be using a basic 3D Render as a base to paint over in Photoshop. We will explore how to move from thumbnailing the basic shape of a vehicle in a 3D package, rendering it out, and then adding a combination of photo textures and painted details in Photoshop to produce a complete concept illustration. Software required: 3ds Max 2011, Photoshop CS5.

Introduction and Project Overview
Hi, my name is Stanley VonMedvey. I'm a concept artist and creative director. And I will be showing you how to take a greybox model and turn it into a really cool spaceship space fighter. My goal is to show you how to do a very refined, mechanically accurate, and detailed illustration. And I'm planning to show you how to do this with Photoshop, starting with a greybox that we'll sculpt out in 3D Studio and bring it to Photoshop where we'll add layers and use the smudge tool and photo textures and a variety of painting techniques to really make it shine and look very, very good as a final product. So enjoy the tutorial.
