Online tutorial released
As you can no doubt see, it’s been rather quiet for a little while on the blog and post front, this being due to continued work on a project in Asia as well as a brand new online tutorial which is now available to view and subscribe to at Digital Tutors – here is a link to Click3D’s first-ever video tutorial for you all: http://www.digitaltutors.com/11/training.php?pid=1301
The tutorial covers Photoshop post-production in the main with a little VRay preparation to begin ...Read More →
Portfolio update: Heathrow T2
It’s been a busy few weeks in Click3D-world so the lack of portfolio updates (or updates at all, for that matter) probably isn’t all that surprising. To remedy that, added to the portfolio today is one of three images created for a pitch presentation for a luxury bar in Heathrow’s Terminal Two.
Whereas most architectural visualisation projects rely on or are guided by CAD submissions and specific material details, this was notable for their absence, apart from a floorplan and a ...Read More →
Photoshop visualisation….on a Mac!
So, it’s clearly been quiet on the count of blog updates from Click3D for the last few weeks and there’s good reason for that (well, if we’re honest with each other, ways and means could be found around it but let’s not dilute the idea of heroic self-sacrifice for now…), that being working in-house on some illustrations for an Italian bag and accessory company with a workflow which required a different approach from the usual methodology.
Key to this project was ...Read More →
Portfolio update: Bury Hill (Part one)
Good morning! – Hope you all have that Friday feeling as we tumble towards another (hopefully) relaxing and rewarding weekend.
It’s been quite busy in the land of Click3D recently – most recently assistance has been delivered in the setting up of an in-house visualisation department at a design and build firm, with phase one complete and future phases waiting in the wings. So, taking that into account, perhaps it is time to add another image to the portfolio – This ...Read More →
As one door closes…
…another one opens as the saying goes and it’s fair to say that that has proved to be very much true. Whilst still being busier than a very busy thing who themselves are experiencing a very busy time, last week started off in a less than satisfactory manner following the sudden and regrettable end of a project. Clearly, this is neither the time nor the place to add more detail so suffice to say that it is one to mark ...Read More →
It has indeed been a little while – in internet terms at least – since there was an update from Click3D. Suffice to say that things have been very busy working on a wide range of interesting and unique projects, not to mention a well-earned break for Christmas. Of course, while it is good to be busy it has meant that this blog has been a little neglected so now is the time to dust things down, get the polish ...Read More →
The Graffiti Diaries
During the trip to Munich it was hard to miss the quality of street art in and around the city, some of which has been photographed and will be added to a Flickr album in the very near future. Unfortunately a lot of this was seen all too fleetingly, through the window of the train connecting Munich airport (nowhere near Munich) to the city itself, where it adorned bridge piers and otherwise blank expanses of cast concrete and similar where ...Read More →
Like a duck: Calm and unruffled on the surface…
…but frantically paddling underwater is pretty much how Click3D has felt this last couple of weeks or so, hence the lack of blog-shaped updates. No bad thing, really!
In between delivering renderings of residential interiors to the delight of the client, a trip to Munich (some fantastic graffiti there), constructive meetings and conversations with a number of prospective collaborators, a little bit of relocation (hello Winchester), planning revisits to portfolio projects, working on photomontage images for submission to the planners and ...Read More →
Click3D’s architectural visualisation articles #4 – The advantages of architectural visualisation over photography
Welcome back! Today’s post is another article produced by Click3D, albeit one which differs from the previous postings as this is more of an opinion piece. Whilst not (at) all that controversial it might offer a little food for thought with regard to how, why and when photography and architectural visualisation differentiate.
Architectural visualisation is often compared directly with photography as a means to promote or market a development or project. Whilst the latter offers true photorealism – post-production ...Read More →
Some hours were invested over the last week or so in updating and enhancing Click3D’s networking presence, the desire being to enable as much coverage as possible and, therefore, the increase in exposure which might bring in new commissions and collaborations. Above and beyond the now-ubiquitous Twitter and Facebook, Click3D now has a Google+ page as well as a presence on sites such as Kropped, Behance and Flickr, to name but a few (other ...Read More →
