If you've enjoyed this tutorial feel free to visit my portfolio for more tutorials, resources and some nice wallpaper-packs... -> [link]

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
This in-depth tutorial on vector illustration in a 3D-environment will equip you with the basic ideas and concepts to recreate the visual style of my illustration "Digital 3D-Abstract" -> [link]

Learn how to
- Create vector shapes in both a 2D- and 3D-environment
- Unleash your vectors into the third-dimension
- Create appealing textures
- Create and scatter a custom brush
- Modify vectors with layer masks
- Use shapes with alternating opacity to create nice effects
- Texturize your vectors in 3D
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

I hope you'll enjoy this tutorial and can draw something helpful from it's contents !

P.S. The cover-illustration was originally inspired by iunewind's "Summer Cocktail", which you can check out here: [link] - he also has a tutorial on this topic (which I did not know when I wrote this one, if you use 3DSMax go check it out for further details [link] )

warning!
this
is
not
a
joke!
carry
on
reading!
or
you
will
die,
even
if
you
only
looked
at
the
word
warning!


ONCE
THERE
WAS
A
LITTLE
GIRL
CALLED
CLARISSA,
SHE
WAS
10
YEARS
OLD
AND
SHE
LIVED
IN
A
MENTAL
HOSPITAL,
BEACUSE
SHE
KILLED
HER
MUM
AND
DAD.








SHE
GOT
SO
BAD
SHE
STARTED
TO
KILL
ALL
THE
STAFF
IN
THE
HOSPITAL
SO
THE
GOVERMENT
DECIDED
THAT
THE
BEST
IDEA
WAS
TO
GET
RID
OF
HER
SO
THEY
SET
UP
A
SPECIAL
ROOM
TO
KILL
HER,
AS
HUMANE
AS
POSSIBLE
BUT
IT
WENT
RONG
THE
MACHINE
THEY
WERE
USEING
WENT
WRONG.








AND
SHE
WAS
SAT
THERE
IN
AGONY
FOR
HOURS
UNTILL
SHE
FINALLY
DIED.








NOW
EVERY
WEEK
ON
THE
DAY
OF
HER
DEATH
SHE
RETURNS
TO THE
PERSON
THAT
READS
THIS
LETTER,
ON
A
MONDAY
NIGHT
AT
12:00
SHE
KREEPS
INTO
YOUR
ROOM
AND
KILLS
YOU,
BUT
SLOWLY
AND
PAINFULLY
SLOWLY
CUTTING
DIFFRENT
PARTS
OF
UR
BODY
THEN
WATCHES
YOU
BLEED
TO
DEATH
IF
YOU
DONT
SEND
THIS
TO
20
PEOPLE
BY
MIDNIGHT
SHELL
BE
COMEING
TO KILL
YOU!
SEND
IT
SO
SHE
HAS
ANOTHER
LOAD
OF
PEOPLE
TO
GET
AND
FORGETS
ABOUT
YOU
DONT
BELVE ME
HEY?

EXAMPLE
1:
JENNY
DIDNT BELIVE THIS AND DELETED IT WITHOUT EVEN READING THE WHOLE THING! A FEW DAYS LATER ON THE MONDAY NIGHT SHE WAS WOKEN UP BYE LOUDE FOOTSTEPS AND HEAVY BREETHING THERE WAS CLARISSA STANDING THERE WITH A HUGE KNIFE AND WELL JENNY IS HISTORY NOW.

very useful..i've seen this style before and it's mind blowing..i'm just practicing the same thing but i wonder what do you think is quicker and/or better:your way, or something similar to this but instead of rendering with top view you export a uwv map from bodypaint 3d to photoshop?
