Just like in case of the kings from week one, we decided to design one of castles appearing in the story each. Naturally, I drew the one that my king would live in. As I designed him as a bulky and robust men I wanted my castle to reflect those qualities, to make it easier to associate this place with his character.
I started with these sketches, concentrating more on big shapes, thinking about the general structure:
Trying to come up with something original and unique for my final piece I mixed a silhouette of an old Japanese castle with some medieval European architecture. Instead of focusing just on the castle itself I wanted to show the environment in which it was built. I also played with the weather to enhance the mood of the piece.
