Ive written an article for 3D World Magazine that takes a look over the arch-viz field trying to define our workflows, styles and technologies we use in our daily work. You can find this article in the latest 3D World Magazine, April 2013 Issue, but since I run into the Print World Wall and couldn’t get in all the examples I had in mind, I decided to follow-up on the article by showcasing more examples that I like Starting with the Postwork Style Workflow Enjoy this roundup!
The common thing to all works being showcased here is that they usually start looking similar to this…
And end up looking remarkable like you see below, thanks to lots of Photoshop work!
