In this unique workshop, digital artist Uli Staiger walks you through the process of using source images, a downloaded 3D object, and Adobe Photoshop's tools to create a striking composition. After combining source images and creating layer masks, he shows how to add a 3D object, lighting, and details like steam, corrosion, and a stream of water. Finally, learn to stylize the composition by adding a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer with the Soft Light blend mode. Along the way Uli shows how to work with layer groups, textures, 3D cameras, point lights, and more. Select lessons feature picture-in-picture live footage of Uli working with his pen and tablet, enabling you to see and learn from his techniques up close.
(music playing) Hi, my name is Uli Staiger, I'm a photographer, book author and trainer for many years. I'm born in Germany. For a few years I've been focused on a particular topic, the fascinating possibilities of 3D visualization. After having produced many videos and articles about imaging that combines photography and 3D. I would like to show you how to create cool image using Photoshop's 3D tools, and working with a Wacom tablet. You'll start with a basic image, that shows a submarine in a bathtub. The angle of view is quite special, so the easiest option to put a water tap in the image, is to use the 3D tab.
You'll learn how to place and how to light it. You'll also learn how to shape the object and give it a metal look. After the image is rendered a few nice and really cool 2D techniques will help to create a stunning look. I hope the process of creating this image will inspire you. All the techniques shown can easily be used for your own projects, have fun.
