Painting Tutorial - 2D/3D Integration

In this tutorial I go over how I integrate 3D elements into a 2D concept/illustration.

This process involves taking a sketch of the object and using it to model the design in a 3D application. A simple greyscale render is then used in Gimp/Photoshop above set to multiply which creates the lighting and form.

Points of interest:

* Can speed up the painting process, especially for simple designs easily created in 3D.
* Results in crisp paintings.
* Frees up the mind to concentrate on design.
* Is a good guide.
* Creates very good perspective.
