My very rough 3D model

Here is another painting I finished from another scene of my Learnsquared course. I wanted to picture them enjoying a sun bath and with very colorful and iridescent feathers like hummingbirds.
The course is available here :

It shows how to make two paintings from scratch to finish using Blender, Octane and Photoshop. I am sharing all the tips and techniques I use in my current workflow to speed up your process.
The course is over 6h long and covers my full 2D and 3D workflow with Photoshop, Blender, Quixel and Octane.
