Getting some more Practice with Google's Free SketchUp program.
Trying for the 'baked clay' look.
I really need to purchase a rendered to get the full scale effect of that look.
This weeks I tried two different Rederers: Podium and IDX.
Both are the Free Versions....so these rendered images are REALLY small.
If I were to go with one...probably Podium.. $79 for the Teachers edition.
The Left Images are based off of a concept sketch from the Art of Incredibles book, the INSURICARE buildings.
The Top Right is a model from Google Sketchup's Warehouse of: Magic Kingdom's Haunted Mansion.
I can see where this program is could used in production piplines....it's pretty quick to get a building made...
complex models take longer of course....
But for perspective and guides for Bg's that are used over and over or need to be drawn from differernt views: HUGE time saver.
Ie: Ships or More complicated structures.
