    The images I see on here simply amaze and astound me - this is no exception to that

    I have a load of drawing packages - Drawplus, Creature Expressions, Corel Painter, Xara X and a few more. I think I must just be the worlds worst artist

    It's fun though

    Thanks guys for the comments.

    I attach the base images exported from SketchUp that were the basis of the rendering. The colour image is typical of SketchUp's internal rendering capabilities. (It is a modeling/visualization program and not oriented towards rendering per say). I export the linework seperately because the final result requires the linework overlays to be processed differently from the colour stuff. In the processing I use up to several different filters and use additional images as transparency masks. The "paper" for instance is a imported image (fill) overlayed a couple of times with differnt transparency settings.

    I'm very curious about which filters, filter settings, and transparency settings you are using for these fabulous creations. If you don't remember this info, it would be great if you could keep track on your next effort and let us know then.

    Thanks,
    Glen

    nice work,Ross as always. I wonder if there is a simplified tutorial for water colors somewhere.

    Okay, here's a tutorial that gives the basics. Note it identifies the three main filters I happen to use. I suspect that other filters could be esed to do the same thing. The substitution for KPT Pyramid Paint could be 'Simplifier' from 'Amphisoft' --- I think it is available for free. The DCspecial filter called 'BeyondEdger4' is available for free. Most of you guys might not be doing things with linework so the 'Jiggle' filter isn't really all that important.

    I also note that you canapply these techniques to almost any image. It certainly doesn't have to be just architectural stuff.

    I hope this helps you grasp the basic approach I'm using. The technique is quite flexible and offers lots of possibilities.

    Regards, Ross
