We have all seen stunning exterior renderings — works of art, really — online and wondered how we can get our renderings to that level. Well, this course is the missing link for taking your renderings from basic to brilliant.
There are several tools, tips and techniques that you may not know that can really increase the appeal of your renderings. In fact, this course will introduce students to several of those things. Once students have a basic understanding of these methods, they can fully unlock their creativity and focus on the artistry of their renderings.
If your architectural rendering projects are ready for that next leap in realism and drama, this is the course for you. Perhaps you already have a good knowledge of arch viz in 3ds Max + Vray, or maybe you have even taken one of my earlier courses, but know you are ready to take on more advanced techniques, tools and workflows?
Start with my model (free download) and add interest to it with additional detail, advanced materials, dramatic lighting, interesting compositions, etc. I’ll show you how using the best tools, and help explain the principles behind what makes a rendering great. You can follow along with me, or iterate with my model and create whatever kind of composition you would like. Experiment with lighting, atmospherics, effects, materials, etc.
There is no better way to start creating professional imagery than to learn from a pro, and master all his tools, techniques and workflows. That is what this course offers.
