Description

During this course we'll go over using 3D that has been created both outside and inside Photoshop. We'll go over the importing process as well as the tools necessary to navigate the 3D space. Additionally, we'll go over how to create simple 3D objects using Photoshop's built-in presets as well as from your own artwork. Finally we'll build a final illustration that uses all of the techniques we've discussed to this point. Photoshop's 3D capabilities are a powerful tool anyone can introduce into their current workflow.

Introduction and Project Overview
Hello everyone. My name is Alex Alvarado, lead artist for Star Team LLC in Burbank, California. In this course, we'll be covering how to use 3D in Photoshop for concept art. Being able to use 3D in my concept art has really helped me advance the overall quality of my artwork, as well as help me progress in my career as a concept artist. Photoshop has the capability of creating 3D objects, as well as being able to import and texture external 3D files. Being able to use and create 3D inside of Photoshop gives artists a new tool to use within a familiar package. In this course, we will go over how to import and texture external 3D files created in a separate 3D package. We will learn a few of the tools necessary to navigate and manipulate the scene. From there, we will go over how to turn layers into 3D images and how to use Photoshop's preset objects in your work. Next, we'll learn how to create our own custom shapes and objects to then finally creating a 3D set to use in our final concept piece. I'm excited to jump into this lesson with you, and there is a lot to cover. So strike a pose, sit back, and get ready as we begin our adventure into 3D. So let's get started with the first lesson.
