I use Sketchup Pro. What are the pros and cons of it?
It’s my choice. Sketchup Pro is available free of charge, with professional grade hardware for sale for a very reasonable price. But you don’t have to spend a ton of time and money to get the best version. And I haven’t used any other 3D software recently, I actually do use Sketchup Pro. When I was drawing my own illustrations with the old PC program, I used Paint.NET, which was developed by Adobe. In fact, back in the day, I wrote a series of blog posts about it for my dad (the company that originally developed Paint.NET) that I’m posting on my blog now (more about those post here).
What do I need to do if I’m not an illustrator?
Before even looking at a picture, I want to understand what’s going on in it. Then I want to know whether I can animate it in my software. Then, to understand what’s going on in the illustration, I look for tools that show me the flow of the illustration and draw an outline of the image using my computer. Then, I scan the photograph into Photoshop, where I can make changes in detail and/or color. All of this happens all in real time.
If I’m not an illustrator, can I learn or do this with a 3D modeling program?
If I’m going to use a CAD software, it makes my job a hell of a lot easier. The advantage of having a professional CAD program is that it allows me to be able to animate models using Sketchup Pro. You can also use 3D modeling software like Maya, which is available free for everyone to use.
But if I want to create artwork, 3D modeling software is by far the best. If I want to make my art, I need to be able to change the size and proportions of the objects I place in the illustration. Otherwise, I end up making the illustration bigger and/or smaller because I’m not sure how I want to change it in the 3D CAD software. If that’s the case, I have a much better chance of actually animating the picture. With 3D modeling software, I can quickly change proportions and modify how I want the whole illustration to look like when put on display.
