    Howdy all !

    I'm interested in feedback from folks that have some experience using
    photoshop in connection with other digital art apps.

    I'm relatively new to photoshop but having self proclaimed success at a

    workflow involving making detail sketches by hand scanning, adding to
    photoshop and rendering textures and shading as needed. A recent
    project has been proposed to me that would benefit from being able to
    do the following:

    Moving 2D photoshop human figures to a 3D app to build models.
    This doesn't have to be full modeling for animation, I just basically
    want to have more freedom in adding clothing/texture, depth, and/or
    realistic shading to these images.

    Moving 2D photoshop inanimate objects to a 3D app.
    I would like to build objects from my 2d sketches/renderings that can
    be given dimension and facilitate placing in a scene with mutliple
    perspectives (profile, top, side, far away, close up)

    I have NO experience with any of these other apps. I've read all the
    web sites selling this software but it's hard to get a handle on what's

    easiest to use, what's overkill, and/or what's insufficient for my

    Does anyone have words of wisdom regarding this need to build models
    from 2 dimensional photoshop images?

    Thanks ahead of Time for your responses.
