This is a great tutorial that I used to practice my own renderings, which can be found in Projects>01. Try it yourself!
From Michael DiTullo: “Below is a quick demo from some simple inspiration images to a presentation rendering. I don’t normally do fashion footwear, but I thought it would be a fun way to quickly show a clean process. Total time from image gathering, to signature on the presentation board was about 4 hours.”
