Blender 2.79 filmic: Should you replace it?

As you are probably aware by now, Blender 2.79 finally is available with a stable release. Among the incredible set of new features, you will find the filmic color profile shipping by default. For artists using Blender for architectural visualization, using filmic will give your scenes a breath of light! Until Blender 2.78 you had […]

Eevee for architecture: First project using real-time render?

From all the upcoming features in future Blender releases, I believe that Eevee is by far one of the most exciting resources. Not only it will give you a brand new real-time render, but also a way to create animations for architecture quickly. Eevee is still in early stages of development and should not go […]

Cycles for architecture: Apartment renders

For artists just getting started with architectural visualization you probably will struggle to get only a single view from a project done. But, with time and experience, a single view of a project won’t be enough anymore. For a few artists, it is becoming a routine to release several images from the same project, which […]

Comic book style render in Blender

I was reviewing some of my articles from past years and found an interesting project, posted by congcong009 at the Blenderartists forums. The project itself and the post are a bit old already, but the artwork is still worth the look. By the time it was published FreeStyle wasn’t yet a viable option to create […]

That grainy look on your images at their early stages. Some people might stare at the monitor screen for quite some time waiting for the noise to […]

Rendered in Cycles: Living room

The project shows a living room filled with well-placed furniture and proper lights. A French artist called Joan Savalli is the author of the project. There is no much information about the hardware or render times for this project, but […]

Interior architectural visualization: Apartment in Cycles

To get a good grip on projects related to architecture using not only Blender but other applications, I have to browse a lot of articles and keep track of artists from different sources. For some people, it might sound boring or tedious, but I enjoy this “hunt” for good sources for architectural projects. And from […]

Course about architectural documentation with Blender and Freestyle

The feedback about the online courses I’m offering here at Blender 3D Architect have been great so far, and I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone that enrolled on my first course. Later today I will be posting the last videos and images for the first version of the course about architectural modeling with […]
