As those of you who follow this site know, I’m working on a four-part series of videos for lynda.com on the topic of making 3D art in Photoshop CS5 Extended. My first course, Photoshop CS5 Extended One-on-One: 3D Fundamentals is due to go live next Tuesday, March 29. (Update: It’s live now!) And I just finished recording Part 2 of the series, 3D Objects, today. Below you see the final project from my latest work, Chapter 12: “Advanced Repoussé,” created, dressed, and rendered entirely in Photoshop. (The text is not part of the project. It’s just hype for the course.)
On a completely unrelated note, NAPP president Scott Kelby recently invited me to contribute to his Guest Blog Wednesday. Naturally, I said yes. And it comes out today!
But here’s where these stories meet up: My guest post for Scott is all about 3D in Photoshop CS5 Extended. It’s inspired by the first chapter of my 3D Fundamentals course. And it was produced by lynda.com. Seriously, it’s like some kind of giant gas planet converged . . . with itself. And that planet is Saturn.
Seriously, check out my blog post at scottkelby.com. Watch the video embedded above. And in just 28 minutes, you’ll have a first-hand understanding of how to work with 3D in Photoshop CS5 Extended.
Did I mention that the final image—although created entirely from scratch—is scientifically accurate? Click here to download the sample files that you’ll need to follow along. Yes, you can do it, too!
