Creating A Detailed Master Plan Rendering – Part 1
(Autodesk 3dsmax 2010 – Adobe Photoshop CS4)

In this tutorial set we will cover the massive undertaking of creating a large site plan from sketches over about 5 sessions. I will be using Autodesk 3dsmax 2010 and Adobe Photoshsop CS4 in this tutorial, although many of the involved steps in the process can be transferred to other software.

This specific rendering was created for EcoCentrix, a Landscape Architecture Firm based out of Los Angeles. They have been kind enough to let me show all collateral information that I have been provided when contracted.

The focus of this rendering is based mainly off the site hardscape, planting and how it flows rather than the architecture of the buildings.

*NOTE* The final image shown below will be changing slightly as this is currently a live project.
