Rendering Exercises


Designer have to illustrate products that do not exist yet.

Line drawings give people a good idea of what a design will look like but it is only when light, shade and colour are applied to a drawing, that the design looks realistic. 

Adding light, shade and colour to drawings is called rendering.  Rendering drawings so that they look realistic takes skill and lots of practice.
