Rendering & Presentation Techniques for Professionals
This lecture, especially designed for the IACC-North America, covers using color rendering mediums, as well as drawing, perspective, and presentation tips to effectively illustrate the intent and mood of your project. Understanding how to mix mediums, as well as how to use hand illustration techniques on photo, or software illustrations to achieve realistic hues, textures, and spatial volume is critical for avoiding flat, off-hue presentation. The lecture focus in on interior spaces, but the concepts and techniques are equally applicable to the presentation of exteriors.
