You should get a better rendering program that sketchup has plugins for. I personally use V Ray and Maxwell.

But yeah, Sketchup is great for quick visual modeling for massing, and also figuring out perspectives for hand drawn renderings.

Not bad Piperka, I'm liking your take on the design of a modern building. I do like Sketchup, but often find that it can be too simple and dim-witted. I often use it for producing product models for my Design & Technology coursework. I'm working on a personal thing right now to test out skills;

I'm downloading software from Autodesk as we speak, (Autodesk Alias Automotive 2013 (English) 64-Bit), which is a bit more advanced and should be able to produce me the models I have envisioned.

If you're a student you should consider joining the autodesk education community, if you are still in education, they will give you a free copy of their products for educational purposes. I think they aim to get more students familiar with industry-grade software. (They do product design, architecture, automotive etc.)
