Digital Watercolor


Great technique. Softens up presentations for sure. Thanks for sharing!

Hi David. This looks great! You could also add a third layer of export from sketchup, which you can use as a feint pencil layer. If you set extensions to something ridiculously long, it creates a nice sketched in effect. Also have you thought about cutting out the render and going straight from SketchUp? I love your watercolor method, by the way and will have a go at using that.

“Hidden line layer exported with “extensions” turned on (set at 6)” is this out of Sketchup?

Yes, “extensions” is out of Sketchup.

I also export a X-ray layer with extensions. In Photoshop I put it at the bottom and put a diazo blue color overlay effect on it, 15-30% or so opacity. Makes blue sketch construction lines
