Lastly, the viewer is shown how to take an elevation view and project into 3D space.
In the second portion, Carl takes a simple thumbnail sketch and fleshes
it out into a finished picture. In doing so, he expands upon many of the
techniques in the first section. While watching this video, the viewer
