I enjoy how quickly you can see progress from a blocky, non-realistic looking space to a space that one might actually be able to use!! I'm still working on a few details - I'd like to add some ontourage (like books on the shelves) and play with the lighting some more.
Not bad for a first draft!
What else would I like to learn about photoshop, illustrator, and autocad?
I'd like to learn more about vectors and vector based programs. Right now I have a vague understanding of how curves are made in vector based programs but I'd like to learn how to make my curve be of a specific size and angle. I'd also like to learn how to do more photo-realistic rendering in photoshop, such as proper lighting effects. I'd like to master the concept of masks and layering to make myself more efficient. In autocad I'd like to learn more about rendering plug-ins and how to use keyboard shortcuts.
