Architectural Renderings

In school I took a rendering class.  I haven't done too much with them since school, but I recently took a Copic marker class to brush up on some of my techniques.  Aren't the colors so pretty?

I'm so excited to do more renderings soon, but until then I found some gorgeous ones to inspire me!  I'd love to make a mini-collage of these to put on my wall!  Am I the only one that loves looking at floorplans, elevations, and other architectural drawings so much?

I'm on my second rendering class right now in Interior Design school. I've considered doing to same thing with my school work and some other things I'd like to draw on the side.
I would love to see some of your renderings, are you planning on posting them in the blog?

Ali. Good luck with your rendering classes! I'm planning on making some renderings from some of my photos from Europe so I'll be sure to post them as I get finished with them!

I recently discovered this blog and am absolutely loving it! My husband and I recently bought a house, but I desperately want to have a rendering done of our first home that we shared together. Any thoughts on how I'd go about finding someone that does that?

GASP! I know we hear hear that heaven will be lined with streets of gold, but I think it would be just as good lined with a rainbow of copic markers like those! :-) I always wanted to go to design school. I couldn't decide if I wanted to do fashion design or interiors, but the thing that kept me from trying was my lack of illustrating talent. Sigh... if only I could go back and not worry so much about what I didn't think I could do.

@Lesley-I've been wanting the same thing of our first home too! I'll see what I can find.

@Traveling Mama-I honestly couldn't even sketch before design school! That's what it's there for! All it takes is some practice!! You could totally do it!

I am doing a bit of research in my work at Copic...
I would like to communicate with you.

Thank you

Wow, that's my kitchen rendering. How did you find me on flickr?
