3D software can be extremely useful for 2D painters, but is intimidating for beginners. The "3D for illustrators" videos are my attempt to bridge this gap. "First Steps" starts this journey, learning 3D software from the perspective of an illustrator, at the very beginning. This series focuses on getting the most value out of the least amount of specialized learning, utilizing free 3D software. Ultimately, 3D is a very deep subject - and this is not a 'missing Sketchup manual'. Instead, the 3D for illustrators videos serve as a targeted guidebook to jumpstart your 3D education. (Note: This is also available as part of the 3D Paintover Starter Kit.)
