This time I would like to share with you a set of 15 bark textures that can be used for example for 3d tree modelling. Maybe you like to create the next trees for your architectural visualization on yor own! All textures are seamlessly tileable and saved in .JPG format.
All textures have also a bump texture included. [Read More…]
This should be a quick beginners-introduction of Sketchup for architects. I want to show you quickly how to make a 3D CAD model of a building using probably the easiest-to-learn software in the field of building architecture: SketchUp. This software can be downloaded for free from sketchup.com.
For now you are not supposed to have much previous experience in this software, all you need to do is go through this step-by-step guide and follow the instructions and of course a little practice afterwards. You will not need to read tons of boring theories preliminarily, instead you will study while drawing a real house. [Read More…]
When talking about photorealistic architecture renderings, one of the key elements is the use of vegetation – simply to bring life your scenery… In this Sketchup tutorial I am going to show you how to create a quite realistic grass with the help of a good texture. So I do not use fancy fur plugins or other rather complex solutions (that without a doubt create very good results) but rather follow on a quick and easy apporach here to not at least present a solution with reasonable overall project and rendering time.

I am very happy to present you this time a tutorial on architecture visualization by Armir Shapallo and Dimitrios Kalemis from the “PHORMIN – Architektur und Digitale Kunst” , based in Munich, Germany.
They describe their work for a competition which was actually published several times! Interesting is the fact that they worked with a quite simple 3D Model and put in more effort in the post production with Photoshop which gave them a lot of flexbility as they describe.
This time Pia was kind enough to share her experiences with Sketchup when it comes to architecture visualisation. Sketchup has become quite popular in our industry and Pia shares some interesting insights and useful tips for cg architects. Enjoy!
As a CG artist, I work with plenty of software during a normal day, but for now I am going to focus on Sketchup.
You may say: “Why Sketchup?” “Why not 3ds Max?” Let’s be honest. For my work, almost 90% of the time I use 3ds Max for making visualizations because of the industry standards, not a lack of features of Sketchup. [Read More…]
This time we like to share with you a beginners tutorial from Megan about merging a sketch effect with your architecture rendering of an interior scenery. Enjoy it!
With growing impact of technology architectural renderings have become increasingly digital. This transition has been positive as it can save time and provide an increasingly realistic view of a final product. With all of the benefits of digital rendering, hand rendering is becoming a lost art. [Read More…]
