Clemsongrad Posted February 17, 2017 Share Posted February 17, 2017 I just tried to emulate in CA a rendering technique I learned in architectural school. It appears to be working. The rendering technique I used over 35 years ago was this: First make a very light print of your drawing on white paper. Color the drawing with pastels or colored pencils. Next print the same drawing on a clear sheet making sure your linework is very dark and crisp. Overlay the line work over the colored drawing and matte them together. The line work gives punch and definition and the color gives the warmth and tone. I just printed out an elevation using the standard render and saved it to a file. I then printed out a technical drawing the same way. I opened both files in photoshop and over layed the linework after deleting the white areas. I then changed the transparency of the line work until I liked the look. Same result - the linework gave detail. Try it sometime! Larry Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
