Brighten your work with custom 3D shapes

Every illustration can be made more complex and colourful with the clever use of texturised spheres and dimensional objects, which can be created with ease.

Throughout this tutorial, I'll demonstrate some methods of bringing bright objects into illustrations, and you can then take these points and adapt them to suit your own images. Hopefully you'll be inspired to start new projects!

You do not have to recreate every single shape in the tutorial; get creative and work out your own version of the composition.
