Here is a rendering of a front door from my neighborhood that I see walking my dogs. I took a snap shot on my phone and the picture became a visual reference for my pencil sketch. While working on the drawing, the photograph is a great way to check the proportions on the door, molding and curved brick steps. After completing the pencil drawing, the fine line drawing marker is added on top of the pencil, the pencil lines are erased and the color marker is added. Check out the line drawing below.
Copic Marker Rendering Tip #3: It is important to have unity of color in an architectural rendered image. One of the techniques that I use is to repeat the colors that are used on different objects. For example, the YR23 and E11 markers are used for the stucco and in the bricks. The reds on the door and brick include the E19 & E11 markers. The grey markers T0 & T2 are used to highlight the decorative molding around the door and the stones. G82 & G99 were used in the plants and door mat. B41 was used in the lamp and a highlight in the stones. To keep me focused on this technique, I select the marker colors before I get started and add new marker colors cautiously as I am working on the image. Need new rendering supplies?
