As Ronen Bekerman rightly points out, if you’re an architect or architecture student putting together a slick set of renderings, you can never have enough 2D people! This particular high-resolution pack has been made available for everyone by Ronen Bekerman via Case3D, an architectural visualization company that has worked with the likes of JDS Architects and Scott Brownrigg.

As well as being very high-quality PSD images (you will need a healthy portion of hard drive or a memory stick to store all of these), these 2D cutout people are conveniently accompanied by a premade shadow layer, making your postproduction life in Photoshop that much easier. The images include groups — ideal for busy scenes such as shopping arcades, stadiums and high streets — and individuals in a variety of poses, offering a high degree of flexibility.

So, without further ado, click here to download your pack — and if you’re feeling especially altruistic this Friday, share this post with your architectural friends so they can do the same. Here are some low-resolution samples to give you a glimpse of what to expect:
