2d Renderings:

2d renderings come in all shapes and sizes and while often are elevations, they can also be a site plan or floor plan. Often they are choosen over 3d renderings because they can be completed in a very short time frame and at a much lower price than a full 3d rendering would entail. Typically a 2d rendering consists of either an AutoCAD elevation or a hand sketch elevation having been scanned. From there color is added, a background is selected, people, cars trees and shrubs are placed in the scene and finally shadows are added. In cases where time is of the essence, a 2d rendering can often be completed even overnight for an early morning meeting if need be. Finally in cases where multiple colors are under consideration, a 2d rendering allows for very quick and easy color changes without the need for a lengthy render time as with a 3d model.
