Pushing on with the exploration of the various workflows in Architectural Visualization, I’m presenting you today with the NPR – Non-Photorealistic Rendering approach as made by Scott Baumberger. More along the lines of what Rafal Barnas showcased in A Unique Approach to Architectural Visualization, in terms of how much Photoshop is being used vs. actual 3d rendering, but specifically aimed at recreating the look & feel of traditional watercolor paintings (and other forms too)… just using digital tools to do so. NPR is more about expressive styles in visualization, distancing itself from photorealism.
Lasse Rode did a remarkable job with his previous articles featured on this blog, and this time is no different. Following the publication of his &tradition renders, I asked Lasse if he can share more of his Photographic Approach in Architectural Visualization. Although we all seem to compare rendering to photography in the end, I think you’ll learn a thing or two about how to get started with this in mind after reading this article which describes an Architectural Visualization Workflow. Enjoy it!
