The Kakapo (Māori: kākāpō) or night parrot, also called owl parrot (Strigops habroptila), is a species of large, flightless, nocturnal, ground-dwelling parrot of the super-family Strigopoidea, endemic to New Zealand.

"This magnificent creature is the Kakapo, a flightless, EXTREMELY endangered parrot native to New Zealand. It's often referred to as the most useless bird in existence, and for good reason.

[...] The fun doesn't stop there for this doomed species. The Kakapo has a naturally sweet odor, which allows it to be found by other Kakapos, as well as EVERY PREDATOR in the area. It's only natural defense mechanism is to freeze in place when it's scared, which makes it really easy prey. It makes loud screeches and booms as a mating call (which it screams into a dirt bowl it digs in the ground), which coincidentally also attracts predators."

Hello guys!
I'm on a fun way to get in and learn about the universe of 3D illustration. This has been a lot of fun for me in the last few months, it's been incredible and here are my best works so far.

There are many tutorials spread across the internet, especially YouTube. And if you know how to look for the right content, you can learn many different techniques very quickly.
However, non-technical tutorials like composition, colors, lighting theory etc are less common.

So I would like to ask you where to find the best resources on these subjects and others related to 3D illustration.

I want to know where to find non-technical tutorials on composition, lighting, colors, rendering etc.
