Drawing In dimensions – Google Sketch-up

Today’s blog is introducing us into the world of both art & 3D modeling/design…

3D Sketch_up

Google sketch up is a 3D modeling software that can be used like any other similar acting software yet is holds specific characteristics which make it more artistically related. Firstly, I imported a Mansion model of which I could place into a 3D environment and render out different angles with real-time views.

After placing my camera where I wanted it to be, I then changed the style (Filter) of my camera from a simple mesh like look to maybe a pencil sketch filter, shadow added filter

… let me show you.

Besides the pretty filters, Google Sketch-up can be a very important tool for digital concepts. If I was to export this and move it over to Photoshop, I would then apply another layer and draw over the image making it easier to create scenes in addition to this there would be no need to re-create an entirely new scene as I can render a new perspective from within Google Sketch-up.

I have placed some current sketches below to show how easy it can be to sketch up an entire scene…

Rule of thirds

Now the reason I have placed a rule of three in the composition is because I am currently learning about how to create the way a story is told from within an image. How to make the audiences eyes move to where you want them to move, for example…

In this example, I’m trying to show how the photos composition in the rule of thirds view explains how the eye can be lead from one point of interest to the other. The helicopter on the left is swooping throughout the image with vibrant colours the eyes should follow the direction towards the next point of interest which would obviously be the ship.
