    Denis – try “From Concept to Form in Landscape Design” by Grant Reid.  It’s a good starting point for what you’re talking about.

  • Denis Vasiliev posted an update in the group Group logo of DESIGNDESIGN 11 years ago

    Hello! I am looking for manuals on Design itself – especially combining forms and shapes(geometry), getting beatiful lines, proportions and finally getting harmonious composition. Any good books or e-books? The best free available on-line:) Waiting for advices!

    barlow, I would really be interested in seeing what European style sketches are and what one would percieve is the common american style of drawing?

  • landplanner posted an update in the group Group logo of GraphicsGraphics 12 years, 3 months ago

    tim-

    you bring up a good point..atmosphere is difficult to convey in hand drawn work. all I can think of at the moment is airbrush..

  • Tim Zhang posted an update in the group Group logo of GraphicsGraphics 12 years, 4 months ago

    anyone know the best way to convey “god rays” in drawn perspectives? thanks

  • Vanessa Ruiz posted an update in the group Group logo of GraphicsGraphics 12 years, 6 months ago

    Hi James,
    Actually, my professor introduced me to your work this past summer, my first semester in LA, and it was he who let me know about your rendering techniques and color usage. In fact, our first shot at perspectives involved 20 minute perspective-making sessions that aimed to emulate your graphics.
    I could only hope that if he hadn’t told…[Read more]

    Hi Vanessa; glad you’re having success with the colored pencil techniques. You have a good eye! I do use a cream pencil combined with peach on almost all buildings and hardscape at the very beginning of coloring a drawing, then wash over them with whatever color will best depict the material I’m envisioning…terra cotta, slate blue. etc. The…[Read more]

    Nick,
    Thanks! I’ll probably be doing more of these in the future and I would like to seed them be as representative of the true design as possible.

    Thanks!

    Eric-

    I got your message. I need to make some evergreens for a plan tomorrow as fate would have it. I’ll post my steps here or shoot you a message.

    Eric,

    I couldn’t tell you how to do it using drop shadows, but I could offer some good advice on doing it manually in photoshop without creating numerous layer copies and keeping the file size down.

    send me a message if you still need help with this and I’ll explain some simple tricks.

  • Eric Shepley posted an update in the group Group logo of GraphicsGraphics 12 years, 7 months ago

    Does anyone have good method for doing evergreen shadows in photoshop with the drop shadow?

  • Just a thought from Soil Science perspective on reducing the water requirements for any plant. Use lots of organic material and or peat moss around the plant,(not too much) and surround other areas with sand. Make sure the drip is going on the water holding material. Sand has the lowest affinity for water while clay has the highest and organic…[Read more]

    James Richards is great. I love his simple color palette. He blends darker colors in his lighter colors to make things look cohesive. For instance, he used carmine red and true blue (i think it was true blue) prismacolor color pencils over cream to create this really nice effect. So, the cream hardscape and buildings really popped after i tried to…[Read more]
