Webinar: Painting Techniques Using a Tablet

February 22, 2019
10:00 a.m. Pacific Time 

Join us this Friday for a lesson in digitally painting a landscape plan. We'll take a plain CAD drawing created with Land F/X and turn it into a rendered spectacle. Working with Photoshop and a drawing tablet, we’ll make the plan look as if it were created using traditional art media such as watercolors and markers. We will be giving away a GAOMON 15.6-Inch Drawing Tablet to one lucky webinar attendee, so be sure to register!

Isometric projection is an incredibly valuable tool for landscape architects. It allows them to show a 3-dimensional space in 2 dimensions so items in the distance have just as much detail as items in the foreground. Check out this week’s Power Tip to learn how quickly you can make one using SketchUp.

Overview: Engaging Students in CAD Design Using Land F/X
Landscape architecture students will use a variety of software platforms over their careers. The industry is trending toward BIM, and this trend will inevitably continue as software continues to evolve. For landscape architecture, BIM means the use of specific tools and smart objects – as in placing "trees," "sprinklers," and "walls" rather than generic CAD blocks and lines.
