Take part in the SketchUp to Piranesi Competition

Our friends over at SketchUcation are hosting a nifty challenge: The SketchUp to Piranesi Competition is meant to celebrate the features of the SketchUp to Piranesi Plugin, as well as the “Design to Art” abilities of Piranesi 2010.

Piranesi is a whiz-bang app that lets you turn your model views into beautiful NPR (non-photorealistic) renderings. My favorite part about it is that it’s far from an automated process; using Piranesi is more like painting and drawing with natural media than using clunky software. You need to try it to see what I mean.

You can download a fully-functional demo version of Piranesi in order to participate in this competition. Use either SketchUp Pro or the free version of SketchUp to participate. This workflow page should help you get started.

Check out the official competition announcement on the Daily CatchUp (SketchUcation’s blog) for more information about prizes, rules and more. John Bacus (the SketchUp Product Manager) and I are two of the judges -- we can’t wait to see what you create.
