I came across these artworks by Jacksachs and I've been wanting to create something similar for a while. Is it possible to create these effects using Photoshop, or do I need to play around with Blender?
Everything which is rendered in 3D can be also drawn in 2D if one can imagine the wanted result and has enough time and patience to put it together.
Making it simpler helps. The next example has only few details:
The green gloss is drawn, everything else is filled selections, blur, transparency and layer style effects. The most difficult part "the ability to imagine it" is skipped totally, it was in the question.
