Discover how to set up Adobe Photoshop ready to use as a digital artist. Explore the preferences, settings and various aspects of the applications interface that are crucial when painting. Learn the significance of using a graphics tablet when painting digitally and explore the settings for the paint brushes including those that relate to using the graphics tablet. Learn how to set up your working environment to display the original photograph side by side with a blank canvas of the correct size.
Explore a few new techniques to help you draw more accurately. Lear n how a technique called ‘negative space’ can help you position objects correctly within a painting. Discover some tools within the application that helps to improve accuracy. This will involve the use of a digital grid system and guides to help identify important measurements. Watch at the end as the artist completes the final stages of the drawing so that it is ready to be colored.
ACCURATE COLOR MIXING
Identify ways to simplify the process of mixing color in Adobe Photoshop. Begin by understanding how to use the color selector to discover the shade you need. Then look at using the color panel for making subtle changes to a color. See how to use the swatches panel to save any colors you will need to use again. Finally be guided by the artist as he mixes and paints in the basic colors for the painting project of Kristin Kreuk.
HIGHLIGHTS AND SHADOWS
Discover techniques for adding in highlights and shadow areas in a painting. Learn and understand the significance of highlights and shadows and how they will improve the believability and realistic quality of the digital paintings. The artist will reveal some of the best techniques for introducing such areas into the painting project and will guide you through adding the necessary highlights and shadows to the painting project of Kristin Kreuk.
Discover the crucial part to transforming a project from the mundane to a masterpiece. In this vital section learn about the long process of adding essential details to a painting project and see how this stage can take an ordinary painting and convert it into a realistic image. The artist again will guide you through the process as he focuses on the eye area of the Kristin Kreuk painting. See how the artist paints in individual eyelashes and pours in the skin taking the painting towards a photo-realistic finish. Finally watch as the remaining areas in the painting are completed and in a speeded up video, see everything come together to reveal the finished painting.

3D MOCKUP IN MAYA
Starting off in Maya we will quickly show a very rough car model that will be the foundation for the design. The car is done with traditional polygon techniques which are not covered in this tutorial. The car was modeled in just a few hours and is very rough, but serves the overall purpose of a sketch model.
THE SKETCH MODEL
By toggling between a standard polygon mesh and a smooth mesh preview you will get an instant preview of the final surfaces. This technique is very useful when making sketch models. Sketch models are important in the process as it allows for easy straight-on modeling and evaluation. Using a polygon modeler like Maya makes the process both faster but also more flexible then it would be with Nurbs.
RENDERING IN HYPER SHOT
Export the entire model to an .OBJ file and then import into Hyper Shot. Learn how to apply materials, change the environment, set up the camera for a successful rendering. Hyper Shot is indeed a great application for fast renderings and this section aims to reveal how it can be used in a slightly more advanced way and efficient way.
Different camera angles are evaluated and once the camera is locked down. Multiple renderings can be created using the same exact camera. Different materials and environments are tried out and this material will later be composited together in Photoshop.
The renderings are now brought into Photoshop for assembly and initial color corrections. Bits and pieces from different renderings are put together using layers and blend modes. Some initial color correction can be made to make sure that the overall palette is consistent and coherent. By using adjustment layers it is possible to work in a non-destructive manner and really tune the levels and colors.
COLOR CORRECTION IN PHOTOSHOP
Learn how to work with the path-tool to create sharp and accurate design element such as cut-lines, vents and body creases. Utilizing a set of brushes in combination with selections created with the path-tool a painted look is achieved. This technique allows for both precision rendering as well as for a more painterly style.
Utilizing the path-tool, details and color trims are created in a fast and creative manner. The front is given some extra attention as well as a number of other key elements. Headlamps and splitters are designed and painted in using different tools.
Learn to fine tune the project by continuing the work all over the rendering, adding details and sharpness, paying extra attention to textures. Utilizing a variety of techniques, learn to add sharpness, key lines and highlights to accentuate. The final step before completion is the introduction of overlay textures that really make the project come alive. By using a variety of textures, the original colors are mixed and blended in a very artistic manner. This technique is somewhat of a signature to the artist and really takes the rendering to a whole new level.
In this Maya 2012 training video, experienced author and 3D modeller Lee Lanier introduces you to the 3D modelling and animation program, Maya. Created by AutoDesk (well known for their CAD software), and used by heavyweights such as Industrial Light and Magic, Electronic Arts and more, Maya is a complete and powerful 3D program. Starting with the basics, Lee takes you through the interface of Maya. As this tutorial on Maya 2012 continues, you will learn how to model using NURBS and Polygons. You will learn about rendering, lighting, and texturing your objects. Lee also shows you how to animate your 3D models. Bump mapping, Raytracing, using Mental Ray, and projecting 2D maps are just a few of the other subjects covered. By the completion of this computer based training course, you will be fully versed in the basic tools and capabilities of Maya, and ready to create, animate and render your own 3D models! Working files are included to allow you to work alongside the author using the very same projects as in the training video.
