optimus prime / convoy photoshop tutorial
when i do shows like comic con, wondercon, and the calgary expo, i get asked how i create some of my illustrations. whether i use 3d apps and whatnot. here's a quick tutorial of how i did my recent optimus prime illustration. almost all of my own illustrations are done as drawings that are rendered in photoshop. this is my general process, but of course, there's always exceptions with every need and desired outcome. basically, whatever it takes is my moto. similarly, at work at the ilm art department, we utilize everything from 3d tools such as modo, sketchup, zbrush, and many traditional methods like good ol' drawing and painting to achieve our artwork. cool enjoy everyone!
