Procreate, Architecture & Design: Sketching as an Essential Step Before Digital Photorealism

Presenting early concept design as photorealistic renderings can backfire with serious consequences: your client can fall in love with an image that seems real but isn't thought out, and even question why you need more time and money to go through schematic design and DD. But fear not! Procreate can help. In today's masterclass, I show you how designing with sketches can give your ideas the time and attention they need to grow, bringing your client into the creative process, as opposed to shutting them out with the false promise of half-baked photorealistic concept designs.
