Sketchup Learning

By 25th September 2017 2 Comments

Recently, I decided to get back into learning more about the Software I used to use at Uni, I want to keep my creativity going and make sure I don’t forget important Skills to enhance my skill set as a Designer.

I came across The Sketchup Hub about a year ago and I have been following it on Instagram and Facebook, then I decided to take the whole course last week, and BOY have I not regretted it one bit!

Anita Brown who runs the Online Courses explains clearly, precisely and easily step by step on creating your very first floor plan, the course dives deeper into creating more textures and effects to make your floor plans pop.

I have only just finished section 4 and after completing the Photoshop side of things I decided to write this post in a wee bit of a excitement.

I am a Photoshop geek and I’m completely in love with my very first floor plan created from scratch.

Yes there is a lot more to do and a lot more to learn, but here is my first floor plan showing a basic line drawing to a simple yet effective textured layout.

Here is the basic floor plan layout, following instructions precisely I was thrilled because it looked so neat and tidy to the very last millimetre

Adding shadows, highlights and low lights, here is the finished floor plan from the first 4 parts of the course, how cool does it look!
