It was a little over a year ago that I started a visitor gallery tumblr page in an attempt to generate a another place on the internet for architecture visualization inspiration. It has been exciting to see so many unique styles and methods submitted week after week. I curate the gallery which means not every illustration submitted will get posted to the tumblr page. As a matter of fact, only about 1/3 of the images make it to the tumblr page. Total, there have been 260 illustrations posted since its inception.
I thought I would highlight some of my favorites in no particular order. These images were chosen for many different reasons: uniqueness, composition, color palette, style, technique and execution. Each of these illustrations combine those characteristics to create a mood and personality that draw in the viewer. Without knowing more about the projects, they are very engaging images on their own and a great source of inspiration.
