Architectural rendering, otherwise called architectural illustration, is the art of creating two-dimensional images to present the aspects of a proposed architectural design. Traditionally, architects use hand-drawn images, drawings with pen and ink, and watercolor renderings to present their vision of the design. With the advent of sophisticated computer modeling and rendering software, however, architects have been able to produce renderings that are much more realistic and life-like. Today, computer-generated rendering, or photorealistic rendering using complex 3D modeling and rendering software, plays a vital role in real estate development and marketing.
