After being offline for several months while I focused more on Western New York photographs and illustrations, I have received a few requests to re-post some of the architectural illustration walkthroughs originally published on this site. While the primary focus will continue to be locally taken photography and illustrations uploaded a few times each month, I have begun a new sub-section to re-post the original tutorials from the past few years along with links to some other illustration resources I like to use. Once the previous breakdowns are back up I hope to add to them intermittently. The new section can be found at chrispolanski.com/arch
