Architectural Illustration Inside And Out

Authors:   

Description for ARCHITECTURAL ILLUSTRATION INSIDE AND OUT: TECHNIQUES FOR ARCHITECTS, DESIGNERS, AND RENDERERS by Albert Lorenz and Leonard Lizak:

A start-to-finish course in pen-line and pencil architectural and interior illustration, ARCHITECTURAL ILLUSTRATION INSIDE AND OUT is an inspired visual work by Albert Lorenz and Leonard Lizak, two celebrated masters of the art. From site plans and exteriors to interiors and small details, this thorough book of technique shows you how to master each step of the illustration process.

Beginning with information about materials and general drafting methods (pencil and pen line on paper, board, and mylar), lettering, "odd" lines, and entourage, the course continues with chapters on the drawing of floor plans, sections, elevations, and axonometrics. Finished examples of every type of drawing round out the major sections.

Accompanying Lorenz's and Lizak's drawings are step-by-step directions that will help you achieve higher levels of technical excellence and style in your own drawings. The authors also show how different drawing techniques can communicate different moods in a drawing. Pencil drawings, for example, have a soft, graceful quality; a dramatic effect can be attained by drawing a penciled shadow beside an ink line; glass may be transparent or reflective---with a different mood conveyed by each. Also included are examples of Al Lorenz's famous overviews, including a number of buildings, cities, and even Texas and the United States, with remarks about how each drawing was done and how long each one took.

By relying primarily on visual examples, ARCHITECTURAL ILLUSTRATION INSIDE AND OUT provides architects, designers, and renderers with techniques that can be readily assimilated and will prove invaluable in the development of outstanding drawings.
