I will occasionally post so videos and animations that might give you some ideas for improving your art. If you are a 3D artist, you might be using 2D art techniques as postwork. The secret is to use png's and layers... lots and lots of layers lol. Layering allows you to use different techniques on each layer where you blend different images for effects or you erase part of one layer to get the effects from the layer underneath or you paint something under the layer. If you understand masking, you can really do a lot of great effects that otherwise are a pain in the arse to achieve.

In the animated Gif here, you see how artist Z.W. Gu takes an idea drawn out on paper and then totally changes the perspective when they do the more advanced art. Obviously they have left out a lot of steps but this makes it simpler as they include the major steps they did to transform and modify the idea before achieving the final image.
