It's not flat.
The transition from a sketch or lineart drawing to a 3D-looking image is a little more advanced, though. If you can't pull it off right away, don't get discouraged... I'll point out areas that I struggled with, and what studies I did to improve them.
In this video tutorial I'll show you my process, how I go from a sketch to a rendered portrait of Lunara. Every step along the way I'll explain my thought process, the tools I use and how the art fundamentals (lighting, depth) come into play.
The tutorial will be up on Dropbox early next week for all . and it'll be part of the $10+ March rewards package that will be sent out on April 1st.

*My playful puppy is causing so much background noise that it has been difficult to record voice-overs, so the tutorial will likely have subtitles and maaaaaybe a voice-over.
