This multi-part tutorial discusses designing an epic starship in Photoshop, starting with the silhouette in part 1, then moving on to refining the shape, and ending in detailing both the trench area (part 2) and then the upper Levels (Part 3). While the final results look dimensional, 90% of the work is actually done in 2d in photoshop, achieving 3d looking results with only the most minor 3d work involved. Includes over 100 minutes of footage.
As a bonus video, we've added a 10 min tutorial showing the photoshop panels technique on its own, to give you a little more detail on the technique and it's advantages and limitations.
