I did this painting as a demo for my upcoming course with Learnsquared.
This one features the 3D part of the course where I will show how to make this painting 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.
On the paleoart side, I wanted to portray a Troodontid pair nesting in a Ticeratops skull. They would use their feathers to glide through the swamps.
