This tutorial is a great introduction to working with and manipulating full 3D models in Adobe Photoshop. In this 3D introductory lesson, students begin by creating a background of stars in Photoshop and then import the 3D mesh of a planet and two spaceships. Students must then manipulate the 3D objects to edit the skins, add a fiery exhaust to the rear of the spaceships, add in laser blasts, and pit the ships against each other in battle. All students will create the same space battle by following the directions, then each student will be free to create their own custom space battle using a variety of included 3d models. This fun activity is an excellent way to introduce 3D models to student of any skill level.
Students not only learn how to import and manipulate a 3D model in Photoshop (keep in mind that the 3D models are fully articulated and can be rotated and viewed in 3D space inside of Photoshop), but also cover such Photoshop basics as working with layers, various filters (Noise, Gaussian Blur, Render, etc.), levels, blending mode, opacity, and working with such tools as Paint Bucket, Eraser, Lasso, Move, Custom Shape, and more.
This lesson assumes students have never used Photoshop. A file is included which lists of all the tools this lesson covers. Instructions are written for Photoshop CC17, but can be easily adjusted for use with any version of the software. Offered in .docx format to allow you to edit and personalize the instructions to meet the needs of your class/course.
