2D/3D Hybrid rendering technique are really interesting, although I don’t have too many clients that prefer or ask for it, there are many things to learn that can transfer to a more photo-real inclined workflow. I previously posted about the ‘Digital Watercolor’ Technique by Scott Baumberger and now I share with you 8 videos done by Minneapolis based architectural visualization artist Les Chylinski. The following videos describe his personal hybrid workflow putting much weight on the use of Photoshop starting with a very basic 3d model rendering, done with SketchUP most of times. Enjoy.

Hats off to Les Chylinski.

But, what I would like to learn is more break down of the tutorials shown as step by step . As what me or anybody will call complete when the process as a whole is understandable and applicable.

Particularly for the Digital watercolor, details of missing steps could be lot more helpful and encouraging.

Thanks

hello,

This is the first time I visit this site and I love it. I think the movies are great and I learn a lot from them. I would like to know how does he make the shadows and the reflects of the pictures that he imports to the image. I kind of have and idea of how he make the reflections but I wish that someone would show some explanation if it if it is possible.

Thanks

Great movies. And yes I'm always interested in workflow tutorials to improve my own skills.. I take a deep bow for those who take the time and the effort to teach us all the good stuff!

Oh and I'm very impressed with the results in the movies.

Kind regards
Paul

Very impressive drawings!

Some customers already told me that they are more impressed by "hand-drawings" than by hyper realistic renderings because they think that only the computer does this job. As we all know, a good artistic background is very important for good renderings as well.

Kind regards
Alain

This is more of a round up... Though, they are kind of tutorials - 3 of them mostly. Les pretty much takes you into his process with high level of detail as far as Photoshop goes.

If you want a more in depth tutorial then this is the place to say so :-) how many of you will like that - Please comment below.

What do you feel is missing mostly for you?

Ronen,

First of all, thank you for this blog. It looks like a fresh place for exchange of ideas. I'll be sure to visit often. As for the tutorials... Yes, insight as to the process would be much appreciated. I have a growing number of clients (happy to have those) that prefer the "softer" look of renderings, particularly at the early stages of design.
I have been experimenting with different ways to archive the "soft hand look" that these drawings shown here afford, while keeping the whole process digital.
I vote a resounding YES for tutorials.

Best,
Omar
