Techniques for designing your concept art within Photoshop.
These are great previz and concept art skills that can be used in production. Even for a personal project, you wouldn’t just jump straight into designing a mech in Maya and spend months on it. You should be able to come up with some 2D concept artwork first. Once you’re happy with it and once it’s approved, then you go ahead and model it in Maya and Zbrush. These techniques can be used for speed painting, illustration, game design, graphic design; whatever you choose to use it for, you’ll be happy that you learned these skills.
