I am an assistant-architect and a Sketchup user from the end of the year 2000.
I've always liked the sketchy look in Sketchup and the simplicity of the Sketchup UI.
It always felt right. Through the years I developed my own style . The renderings are a good help for architects during the design process.
I'm also a freelance sketchup artist. If you think I can be of any assistance, let me know. I'm sure we can work something out that makes both of us happy.
