Nigel Gough is a Registered Architect and Industrial Designer and has been working in the industry since the mid 1980’s. We have featured a number of his illustrations on our site and social channels. We love his style - and wit! 

Today, Nigel shares with us how he works with both analog and digital tools.

This approach makes your workflows efficient and fluid. Referring to the final illustration, more details are then added in. To achieve this, Nigel uses Rhino 6 for the modelling software, with a VRay 2.0 rendering plugin.

Mixing the two mediums creates a unique finished piece of work with fascinating results! By adding additional Photoshop post rendering more details are created. Soon, an entire scene beautifully emerges.
