Iconic landmark illustration submission.
My first idea was to create and old crumbly castle using rough edges and un even strokes. The image did not satisfy the triumph of the long standing castle in North Wales.
I then opted for a strong clean style to show its longevity and used some of the ideas from the first drawings.
I wanted to keep the abstract feeling whilst giving a geometric measured approach. I tried to show the slope it sits proudly on from the reversed jagged base.
I liked the feel of the greyscale castle and the slightly silhouetted pillars against the sunset.
And being Wales, you have to throw in a couple of seagulls!
Please leave any comments and feedback and I will take it all on board.
