As a newbie learning Autocad and Photoshop, I was hoping I could be directed to some resources that might make my renderings (plan view only right now) more attractive and efficient. I have completed a a basic rendering from techniques I learned from Chris Harrison’s Autocad to Photoshop videos on You Tube (great in my humble opinion).
I am looking for any sites explaining different graphic styles, good nice block groups or CTB files to download, effects in Photoshop or Illustrator to apply to create specific effects (grass texture on this site from Tuesday Tutorial, etc.).
I am a humble residential garden builder (http://www.jimanderson.net/blog/) looking for help. Please be kind.
Thanks in advance to anyone with suggestions,

heres the book we use in school. it teaches everything from setting up line-work quick perspectives, to diagrams. i love it and it has made my workflow much faster and efficient, while still getting my point across.January 26, 2013 at 1:47 pm #155622
Thanks for the reply. I have actually bought that book in the past and didn’t care for it, so I returned it. It may have been a little advanced for me at the time. I will give it another look,

A wonderful resource while I was learning at school was:
http://www.alexhogrefe.com/tutorials/ here you will find a little bit of everything (Effects, Styles)
More specifically on your topic:
The plan shown here was made in 3d, the post-production work was done in Photoshop so you can take some tips and ideas to begin working on your own style:
As far as CAD Blocks:
Here are some additional plan rendering Web Resources that you could find useful:

Hope this helps a bit.
