Hand Drawn versus Photoshop

Just a quick post today! I’m taking a break from making my final model and I thought I’d take some photos of the Masters level work on the floor below me. I absolutely love the first three pictures I’m going to share with you, as they are hand drawn perspectives and sections. The details just look so intricate and well thought out. I’ve always preferred hand drawing as opposed to using AutoCAD or Photoshop for plans and such, and this project highlights how effective and lovely sketching can be.

These following set of photos are some more Masters work that stood alongside the above project, and although the graphics of this second project are really strong visually, something about the hand drawn project just impresses and inspires me more! The boys in my class disagree, and I’d love to know what you guys think, especially any employers out there! Hand drawn, or Photoshop??

Final Portfolio of Year 2

Long time no see! Sorry for the lack of posting here but uni has just been so hectic these last few months, and the final deadline of the year is now looming, the 20th of May! But I thought I’d show you guys some textile pieces and model photos of my current project, let me know what you think!

My very very rough 1:200 model of my building. The pins and thread represent the dye garden and vegetable patches for the horticultural centre we are designing. Hopefully photoshop will help me out!

A conceptual textile piece of an elevation, looking through the dye garden. These pieces are meant to be very simple and highlight the growing plants as opposed to the buildings themselves.

This final silk perspective was my first attempt at a textile piece. I really don’t like how cartoony it is, and the shiny cladding is too blingy for me! The cladding is meant to be dichroic glass, as used in Niall Mclaughlins peabody housing project, photos here http://www.niallmclaughlin.com/projects/housing-for-the-peabody-trust-silvertown/

I’m finding it very hard to represent such a complicated and delicate matierial in my own models and plans etc. Let me know what you think so far!
