Who is tutorial for? 

It's aimed at beginner and intermediate artists looking to broaden their toolset combining 2D and 3D techniques. I recommend that you have some foundational knowledge in Blender.

In this tutorial, I will show you how I translate my ideas using 2D and 3D tools in a beginner friendly way.  I will also discuss black and white sketching, painting over 3D, photobashing, composition, lighting, and setting up a strong base to paint over in Photoshop.
