Architectural Watercolors by Atelier Crilo

November 18, 2014 |  by  |  Native, Workflows

Atelier Crilo posted some architectural watercolor visuals recently that immediately captured my eye. I like this approach in general, and their use of AutoCAD layers in this case was specifically interesting. This is a traditional technique revisited with digital tools to produce architectural illustrations that have both the watercolor feel as well as some CAD drawing too. Enjoy this one!

Frank Raymond‘s ‘Z’Axe Boutique’ visual captured my attention for its color, light, composition and for being so rich in details to a point I awarded it the Best Visualization of the Week NO. 32/2014. Starting with SketchUP, Frank takes as through the process of creating this great visual using 3dsmax, V-Ray and Photoshop. Enjoy!

I found the Nordic House visuals by Héctor Javier Diez Valladares during my routine browse on Behance. My eye landed on it rather quickly and I could understand perfectly why it won first place in the First Latin-American CG Contest it was intended for. With snow being a rare treat for me I’m always drawn to such images, and this one had a great feel to it and so I wanted to know more and this article came to be. Enjoy!

Matthias Buehler approached me not long ago, sharing his personal project ‘Favela’ which immediately got me curious. Knowing Matthias works at ESRI as 3d Product Engineer involved with the CityEngine project I knew that some cool stuff are going on behind the scenes and I was eager to learn more about it. In this article, Matthias describes the rather ‘techy’ process of the procedural generated creation he and his friend Cyrill Oberhaensli went through over a span of 2.5 years working on it in their spare time. Enjoy!
