How to Become an Architectural Illustrator

By John Kordela

As an illustrator I first began my career acquiring skills in fine art. A background studying traditional painting, drawing, design, and color theory is what can give you the edge you need to stand out among talented illustrators in this industry. Many artists today still offer traditional paintings or drawings, but these are quickly becoming replaced with high tech computer renderings and 3D modeling.

By also studying CG Illustration you may find ways to simulate hand drawn or water color paintings in addition to creating more photo realistic visuals. After learning 3D Modeling and Animation, I went on to study undergrad courses for an architectural degree and work for a builder. Here I learned technical drafting skills and building methods. This is very important to understand the building process and terminology in order to be able to read plans and communicate with architects, builders, and real estate agents.

After working for architects and building developers for several years, I opened my own freelance design studio. These entry level jobs brought me hands on experience working with city public officials, real estate agents, talented designers, and building developers on site. To be able to communicate and understand the needs of these key professionals was a priceless skill to learn what was necessary to open my own studio.

I am now able to serve the needs of other industry professionals mostly from my computer, while only visiting certain job sites or clients for very specific detailed or large projects. One of the main skills I had to learn outside of school was the ability to communicate the benefits of what architectural illustration can do for others in order to earn the interest of clients. Students can often focus solely on the detail of their craft through refining their artistic and technological skills, and this can easily distract them from the networking that is incredibly important in order to attract clients.

It can be incredibly challenging to find work if you cannot communicate and market yourself to professionals that need your services. Because this is a very specialized field, anyone interested in pursuing it as a career must learn to convey to others all that they have to offer. Architectural illustrators must let their clients know how these skills can make them more money and increase sales.

In addition, the expansion of sustainable and "green" building methodologies has created another huge market looking for 3D modelers to help explain how the new technology works through renderings and animations. Various industries in related fields are also seeking the skills of 3D modelers and technical illustrators for furniture, medical, and retail product design.

Overall, architectural illustration is a very valuable asset to the industry. It is a specialized niche to belong to, but meets a specific demand from a progressive industry that is striving for a lighter footprint on the environment. Regardless of the economy being good or bad, visualization of a project promotes better communication, more efficiency, and less waste in the building process. It is invaluable to "Green" building, and more importantly, on survival in a tough economy.

Sell Faster and Make More Money With Architectural Renderings

By John Kordela

Architectural illustration can create a three dimensional looking structure for others to see before it is built. It allows those who cannot visualize the outcome to see it before hand. This can prevent very expensive mistakes in both large and small developments.

A lot of money is spent when designing a building, however, very few people understand what it will look like until it is too late to make changes. The price of a rendering is a very small investment when compared to the large percentage of budgets that go into the design aspect of any building. This small portion of the overall budget can bring big returns for the higher perception in value that it creates.

Often architects and builders need to present their projects to investors and clients whom do not understand or read design plans clearly. This is where an architectural illustrator can convey a project so that others can visually understand what it will look like ahead of time. This can greatly alleviate miscommunication between builders, architects, and their clients.

This can also leave room for more improvements or upgrades that can be done with a variety of renderings for clients to choose from. Overall, architectural renderings can increase the value of your project and bring you more money for your designs and your time. With modern technology, there are also a variety of different levels of renderings to choose from. For those with a smaller budget, computer modeled designs can be done with basic landscaping and an elevation view.

For those with high end projects, there are highly refined interior and exterior visual representations that can be made to create a staged look and feel as though the project is already built. These can include high end accents such as lighting, romantic or eco modern landscaping, high end appliances, cars, and a variety of people from working professionals to family scenes with mothers and their children.

Even a basic rendering creates a quicker higher priced sale. This concept is similar to the benefits of home staging. It is a known fact that staged homes sell faster than ones that are not. This is because buyers need a visual representation literally spelled out and created for them. They need to see the use of space to understand its value and what it can do for them.

Most illustrators are available through freelance studios and this can give you more freedom to choose from a variety of styles without having to carry additional employees. Many of these artists use the more traditional style of hand drawn or painted illustrations.

However, a quality computer modeled rendering can offer you a more modern realistic impression of your project. Also an artist specializing in 3d computer generated renderings can usually produce faster turnaround times with an expensive looking illustration at any budget. By painting a picture you can conceptualize your ideas to others, excite buyers, clients, and investors by winning over their approvals with a realistic representation of your vision.

What Is Rendering

''Where do architects and designers get their ideas?'' The answer, of course, is mainly from other architects and designers, so is it mere casuistry to distinguish between tradition and plagiarism?
Stephen Bayley

A building is akin to dogma; it is insolent, like dogma. Whether or no it is permanent, it claims permanence, like a dogma. People ask why we have no typical architecture of the modern world, like impressionism in painting. Surely it is obviously because we have not enough dogmas; we cannot bear to see anything in the sky that is solid and enduring, anything in the sky that does not change like the clouds of the sky.
Gilbert K. Chesterton

A doctor can bury his mistakes, but an architect can only advise his clients to plant vines.
Frank Lloyd Wright

A modern, harmonic and lively architecture is the visible sign of an authentic democracy.
Walter Gropius

A structure becomes architectural, and not sculptural, when its elements no longer have their justification in nature.
Guillaume Apollinaire

Ah, to build, to build! That is the noblest art of all the arts. Painting and sculpture are but images, are merely shadows cast by outward things on stone or canvas, having in themselves no separate existence. Architecture, existing in itself, and not in seeming a something it is not, surpasses them as substance shadow.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

All architects want to live beyond their deaths.
Philip Johnson

All architecture is great architecture after sunset; perhaps architecture is really a nocturnal art, like the art of fireworks.
Gilbert K. Chesterton

All fine architectural values are human vales, else not valuable.
Frank Lloyd Wright
