Product description

Review

"This book′s exceptional clarity earned it the highest honor in the Communications category. It is organized and written to appeal specifically to landscape architects who have been trained in traditional representation methods on the drafting table but who would like to work effectively in digital media. The jury clearly saw the book′s value. "It′s the first drawings book I′ve seen that is contemporary and clear", one juror said." ( Landscape Architecture Magazine, September 2012)

"Digital Drawing is a sophisticated digital media book focused primarily on creating photomontage images for site design. This book, aims to be a software neutral and has a strong, theory–based designer′s point of view. This is the first landscape architecture book available as an eBook, so the authors thoroughly embrace modern communication tools while still holding to the tried–and–true landscape architecture values of high–quality graphic representation." (Landscape Architecture, August 2010)

From the Back Cover

A full–color guide to digital landscape representation

For a hundred years, pencil, pen, markers, and watercolor have been the principal tools of representation for landscape architects and urban planners. Today, those hand–powered aids have been replaced by an array of digital tools. Digital Drawing for Landscape Architecture bridges the gap between the traditional analog and the new digital tools and shows you how to apply timeless concepts of representation to enhance your design work in digital media.

Building on the tried–and–true principles of analog representation, Digital Drawing for Landscape Architecture explores specific techniques for creating landscape representation digitally. It explains the similarities and differences between analog and digital rendering, and then walks you through the steps of creating digitally rendered plans, perspectives, and diagrams. You′ll explore:

  • Computing basics

  • Raster and vector images

  • Setting up the document

  • Base imagery and scaling

  • Hand–drawn linework and diagrams

  • Text, leaders, and page layout

  • Color, shading, and textures

  • Creating a section elevation

  • Perspective drawing

  • Techniques for using the newest vers ions of Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, and Acrobat as well as older versions

With more than 500 full–color drawings and photographs alongside proven techniques, Digital Drawing for Landscape Architecture will help you enhance your skills through a unique marriage of contemporary methods and traditional rendering techniques.
