Issue 159 of 3DWorld has just hit the shelves and this month I take you through the creation of a cute, stylized illustration. We look in depth at how to model, pose, UV, texture, light and render her. Finishing off with a glimpse at render passes and compositing in Photoshop.

All this packed into almost 2 hours of video and six pages plus it is written without a specific application in mind, so you can use whatever you like.

What we also wanted to do was steer away from the usual user interface screen grabs normally associated with tutorials, so the images which come with this are all rendered.

You can see the final render below.
