More along the lines of what Rafal Barnas showcased in A Unique Approach to Architectural Visualization, in terms of how much Photoshop is being used vs. actual 3d rendering, but specifically aimed at recreating the look & feel of traditional watercolor paintings (and other forms too)… just using digital tools to do so.
