This image is taking a bunch of the different tutorials and posts on this website and mixing them together. Notice the lawn mower stripes in the grass haha. It's all about the details.

very creative, the overlay of the interior floor plan on has a practicality to it. there's a duality to this; its highly detailed but at the same time sketchy
sir .. i want to say fantastic work . but i really need how you do this site step by step plz plz plz .. help me
Absolute BEAUT! I second previous comments about a tutorial, obviously if you have the time that is! Big fan of your blog.
ya the mower stripes are a good idea man!
Like the Trees, woo~~ vivid~
Just found this blog - incredible! Studying architecture myself and these tutorials will sure help. Thank you and good luck!
I stumbled onto your site after viewing your youtube tutorial. Can I just say you are insanely talented in what you do. I am a stylist with an interest in art, architecture, graphic, interior and fashion design, well actually anything to do with design. And I have found your work and your approach quite inspirational. Keep up the great work!
I'd love to play around like this.
Hi Alex again a beautiful presentation. I just wonder why you add the lines on the plan? is this just for creating a sketchy style, and is this just fantasy? or have they an other reason? I guess that the lines showing on the building is for showing the inside of the building? I recognize you're basketball field of one you past tutorials ;-)... just two more questions: 1/ why did you add just a half lawn? I'm not sure what you mean adding green on the stairs... is this because the stairs shade off into a slip? The most fantastic thing in this drawing is the shadow this is so remarkable, you can feel the depth of the field! NICE
again nice green effect. wonderful. plz share the tuterial alex
I think the top-view trees are brilliant as they really add depth to the illustrationcan you share the image to us?
thanks alex, great work again:)
please can someone teach me how to do this?? please please please... i want to do this in my final thesis presentation drawing....!!!!
@JurgenTo broadly answer your questions, I used artistic licenses. More specifically, I added elements such as the guidelines to reveal some of the "process" in the design. The guidelines represent some of the relationships between my design and the surrounding context.I only showed the grass around my design for two reasons. I knew this image was going on my site, so I thought it would be interesting that as the user scrolled down the page, more information and color would be revealed in the illustration. Also, I also wanted to make my design hierarchically the strongest area of the image.The stairs I think you are referring to are actually amphitheater seating. Here my design uses both hard surface seating and grass seating.
Alex, I'm a huge fan. Your tutorials have been incredibly helpful/inspirational. Thank you so much! I'm particularly captivated by this image. It's difficult to find expressive drawings of site plans out there. They tend to be either very generic or very cartoonish. If it's not too much trouble, would you be willing to list the different techniques that you applied to this drawing? In terms of the details, how did you create the trees and the lawn mover stripes? Any information you would be willing to share would help me tons. Many thanks in advance for your help.
Apologies for the oversight. I just realized that you did post an explanation of your process for this drawing. For all of those interested, go here: http://www.alexhogrefe.com/blog/2013/4/2/portfolio-upgrade-part-2.html
