Rendering in Colored Pencils (8) Session
One of the most critical aspects of jewelry design is to render your image in such a way that its structure, shading and texturing appear to be fully realistic. This concept of photo-realism is vital to a designer’s success, as the surface properties of jewels and their settings all create various interplay with light, shadow, and the surrounding environment.
From a competitive standpoint, the more efficient those designers can be in rendering a photo realistic representation of their designs, the more opportunities they create for success and customer satisfaction. This course introduces students to the most advanced technologies for rapid rendering, as well as the classic methods that have served and inspired designers for centuries.
In this class you will learn how to:
Draw and render faceted gemstones and cabochons.
Illustrate surfaces, shapes and textures in white and yellow metal.
Make realistic renderings by understanding the behavior of light and shade.
Students will leave with renderings for their portfolio.
