Assessment objectives
  • Understanding of line hierarchy in 3d views, such as perspective
  • Basic understanding of section commands, preparing and exporting linework to Illustrator
  • Stylistic skills to finalize image up to a certain presentation standard

Working from the referenced workflow below, create a section perspective drawing of your current studio project (or a previous model) along the section you've prepared.

Drawing must be viewed in Perspective rather than Parallel view. Post-processing should incorporate the following elements:

  • Render via VRay or RhinoRender
  • Background image
  • Scaled figures w/ correct shadows
