Architecture poster assignment: Concept sketches and ideas

Before setting out to create a fully digital poster, I drew some concept sketches for my poster using a sketchbook and different drawing materials.

Here are some initial ideas, many of which needed to be scrapped in the end, as i needed to decide on a final idea.

I went through a few pages of concept art before i decided on three ideas to focus on.

When i eventually decided on ideas that i liked, taking into account feedback from tutors and classmates, I made those ideas bigger and drew them again, using more detail and colour this time, before deciding on my final 3 ideas.

Here is an example of one of my more finalised sketches.

Afterwards, I eventually decided on 3 final poster ideas, that I could then re-create using Photoshop and Illustrator as a final poster.

Once these sketches were done, I eventually re-created these final images in Photoshop and Illustrator, basing these re-creations on those final sketches. You can see the digital development process in another blog entry.
