4 Architects and 3D Artists Who Produce Amazing Art Pieces

Even though architecture design is a form of art by itself, architects and 3D artists need some time off. That's when the real magic happens. Instead of using a computer, they're using brushes and colors to create the most extraordinary pieces of art.

It's a really exciting time to be an architect today as there are so many options and possibilities out there. Modern technology has revolutionized and perfected architecture up to a point where 3D artists and architects can do unimaginable things, much to the delight of their clients.

While this may be so, these exceptional artists and professionals do need a break from time to time from all that technology. Almost every architect is looking for new ways to beat repetition and create something unique.

Intelligence and creativity are what really matters when it comes to creating amazing buildings. But what happens when that intelligence and creativity are put to a different use?

Today, we're going to mention a few amazing architects who have gone beyond their usual architectural approach and produced the most amazing art pieces.

Side by Side Comparison of Still 3D Renders and Animation

3D renders and animation can both be used for architectural visualization but they aren’t the same. In this post, we are going to explore their uses, differences, similarities, and how to recognize which one to use and when.

For many people, 3D renders and 3D animations are the same things and they make no distinction between them. They are similar and can be used for similar purposes, but this doesn’t mean that they are the same. Even though 3D animation is used less in architecture than 3D renders and walkthroughs, it can have its uses in architecture as well.

No matter if you want to develop a project or you plan on working as an architectural designer to deliver these visual elements to clients, you need to understand the difference between the two and how they can be used correctly.

Neither is universally better than the other

The first big mistake a lot of people make when comparing 3D renders and 3D animations is that they try to figure out which one is better. They start taking sides like in a football match. This comparison we are doing today is not for the purpose of figuring out which of these two is better, as they both have certain uses.

At the same time, 3D visualizations are also done in various industries which have different needs and might need different approaches to come up with the best product. This is why it is essential to understand both of these terms completely, their differences, and unique ... ... Continue reading

8 Common Issues with Architectural Rendering and How to Solve Them

Architectural rendering is not an easy job. There are countless details that demand a designer’s attention, that it’s not uncommon to make some mistakes along the way. Take a look at those common mistakes and see what can be done about them.

Architectural rendering is a vital part of attracting investors and wowing clients. With today’s powerful hardware and software, designers can make photo-realistic renders of buildings to be, bringing their designs to life and helping developers sell their ideas.

However, when your imagination is the only limit, it can be difficult presenting a realistic design. Many designers invest countless hours perfecting every pixel that the design becomes overcrowded. Others, on the other hand, try to use ‘cheats’ to speed up their process.

There are many common problems and mistakes designers encounter daily, and it can be a tedious task figuring out how to fix them. So, let’s take a look at some of the most common issues and see how they can be solved.

Too Simplistic Design

Real-life photography, for example, serves to tell a story. The same should be done with architectural rendering. Designers must impress their clients, and the only way to do that is by creating a compelling story with their render.

Of course, the purpose of architectural rendering is to focus on the building or room, to show what it will look like in reality.

However, a bare room with ju... ... Continue reading
