Cutaway Art

Cutaway or ghosted technical illustrations are most effectively done in a 3D program. Cutaways give us a peek inside an object that can tell us how it works—what makes it tick. many times, the drawing is done from an object that is in a preliminary design stage.


One of the best attributes of a 3D illustration is that if a change in view, color, texture, or even component is needed, only that part must be redrawn; there's no need to reconstruct the entire image.


Many of these drawings, however, are done in vector... and most get help from Photoshop.
