Wednesday 16th May 2012 - SketchUP

I'm still not too sure what to make of it. I set myself a three week project to investigate its possibilities, and, well, I investigated. It's pretty good making a model of what you want to paint - It makes you consider things not necessarily in the imagined painting, but which are crucial to the believeability of the scene as a whole. However, I currently find it hard to overlay paints onto the model without them looking pasted on... There's a freedom with painting which can be stifled, but I used to find this with pencils, so I can assume it's merely a matter of time before using sketchup becomes a little more natural.

 These are the models - The things that actually look rendered are from Google Warehouse, which is useful, especially for fast conceptual work, because it's used as a pre-vis idea to set the scene.

And the three finished paintings. They took around 2 hours each, which is a pretty decent rate, especially for some of the totally dodgy angles I chose to paint.
