This tutorial is a great introduction to working with and manipulating full 3D models in Adobe Photoshop. In this 3D introductory lesson, students begin with a background image and then import the 3D mesh of a NASA lunar lander. The lesson progresses with students adding exhaust to the bottom of the spacecraft, editing the model's skin, turning the background into an alien landscape, and more. Included are directions for a follow-up activity that allows students to get creative and create their own custom image using any of the included 40 landscape images and 26 different 3D models, also included. This fun activity is an excellent way to introduce 3D models to student of any skill level.
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 CS3, 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.
Don't bother with poorly written tutorials on the Internet that you can't edit - download, modify, and use this lesson with your students today! Enjoy!
