Now on Skillshare here: http://skl.sh/2GjWV8q


Note: I have renamed this class. It was "Create a Space-Themed Illustration".


This class covers a range of easy to master skills, from cooking, to 3D rendering, to digital painting.


Part 1 – The Pancake Moon

In Part 1 of the class, you will learn how to:

  • make pancakes in your kitchen
  • using Affinity Photo, make equi-rectangular projection texture and bump maps out of the pancake's cratered surface
  • using Cheetah 3D, wrap the texture and bump maps around a sphere, and
  • render your pancake moon.

We will be using Affinity Photo to create our texture and bump maps, and Cheetah 3D to render the pancake moon.






Part 2 – Painting a Starry Nebula

With Affinity Photo, you will learn how to:

  • use shapes to create stars and simple lens flares
  • use the standard set of Affinity Photo brushes to paint star fields and a nebula
  • composite your moon with your starry nebula, and
  • fine tune the lighting of your moon.
