Use best materials & your work will rise to the challenge.
Bienfang Designer series Graphics 360 100% Rag Translucent Marker Paper. Prisma markers are a good start, AD Markers my choice.

Ink on front of tracing paper. Add color pencil on back of tracing paper. Marker on front.

Sample of my work as a student like you. Airbrush, Marker, Pen, Prisma Pencil, Liquid Paper (yellow), tooth brush splatter...whatever it takes.

My Sketch-Up model based on AutoCAD drawings for real world client. Used Photoshop to complete overall presentation.

Books for Reference. I do have a massive library of text for reference. If I had to choose just a few, the following would be my TOP FIVE for Arch/Design students.

Color Drawing 3rd Edition by Michael E. Doyle ISBN 0471741906
Architectural Drawing- A Visual Compendium of Types and Methods by Rendow Yee ISBN 9780471793663
Drawing Shortcuts-Drawing Quick Drawing Skills Using Today's Technology by Jim Leggitt, AIA
Architectural Rendering techniques/ A Color Reference by Mike W. Lin, ASLA
Drawing and Designing with Confidence/ A Step-By-Step Guide by Mike W. Lin, ASLA

The following videos are best for students learning SketchUp with use of AutoCAD & Photoshop. Basic at top more Advanced as you go down.

Steven's Hope for Children was looking for a concept for a new project. The layout for the apartments are based on senior housing. The bright colors are based on Lego color blocks, to provide a fun and safe place for kids while they are in recovery.
