These are 3/4 aerial views of castles I am designing. Departing from illustration and composition studies, these aim to describe more of the form and function of these locations. I attempted to use lines to define form and space rather than pattern, which serves only aesthetic purpose here.
Stylistically, I infused more fanciful references such as Antoni Gaudi architecture and Final Fantasy XIV concepts, while maintaining gothic elements for dark realism. I am pleased that it feels more unique than previous attempts.
