This is the short story of an assignment for an illustration.
Step 1, “Visualizing the idea”. Iv’e started from a scratch, in order to visualize the final work and to use it as a model for a vectorial illustration, thinking about vintage illustrations on some international, cool, magazines.
Step 2, “Creating the elements”. Using the scratch I’ve start to create the vectorial figures to be used in the final work.
Step 3, “What the client requires”. I have started working on an impersonal vectorial illustration, but the client likes so much the sketch that ask me to have my draft as final work.
Step 4, “An hidden mechanism”. Ok, I will use a software and an hardware but, as much technology is hidden as much the final result is appreciate .
I believe that it’s the same showing architectural ideas. No matter how much a rendering is photographic, what tells you something is decisive, even if it’s a simple but expressive and personal pencil sketch.
