Exercise - a subjective drawing.

Follow the Yellow Brick Brogue....
After many trials and tribulations with Illustrator and Photoshop I finally managed to come up with what I wanted... things have moved on from the idea of the 'brick brogue' to the image above.
Its been a difficult exercise to pin down and below are some of the ideas I had along the way...

First draft on my Tree of Soles idea, drawn on a kraft paper in pen, which I then scanned and digitally coloured, see below.
Below is my original idea of a hand drawn image which I wanted to
digitally render, and then got sidetracked into the image below - the denim brogue!

Exercise - subjective part 2

Things have changed in my thinking on Subjective brogues, or evolved as I have moved onto the idea of the brogue as a 'well-built' item. Words from the list such as strong, robust, constant, all lead me to the idea of making the shoe out of bricks or metal which led me to the sketches right of brickwork brogues! I guess this is how its supposed to work, with a brainstorm based on words and ideas which feed other ideas until you come up with something  thats workable. Anyway, I'm going to work some more on the brick-brogue as I still think it looks stylish, even in bricks...
