Stylised Illustration Tutorial - A Blender to Photoshop Process

File


Release Notes Version 1.1

Hi guys,

I've added 3 more videos into the Blender Lighting section, I give a demo on setting up a sunset and moonlight option. In the third video I cover using HDRIs for lighting, I go over a darker/spooky scene and sunrise option.

Also the guys at COOLORUS.com have kindly provided a 20% discount code for their colour picker for anyone that picks up the tutorial.

Thanks!
