Using my existing rough sketches to experiment with different formats of how a poster could look.
This is a montage which I have played around with using Photoshop, trying to show many sad Staffies. I think the pencil and pen work well as they look grey and a bit depressing. I also think has a ‘serious’, down-to-business kind of look which obviously is good as I don’t want the poster to seem light hearted:
Below is the first montage I have experimented with, using previous minimal sketches just with a fine line pen. I thought that there was too much space on this one so I tried adding more and crowding them together………
I do really like this look of dogs all packed in and on top of each other. Maybe some of them look a bit too relaxed and happy?! But at the same time I don’t want to over milk the sad puppy faces too much so maybe they’re ok:
For the image below I tried putting one dog much bigger and on top of all the others which I think is the most successful out of all of them as you can see straight away the one dog, and then you look closer to see the other images:
I’d like to try adding more detail onto these but I’m not sure if that would work so well as you might not be able to see what all the crowded shapes are if they are too busy? I do like the idea of dogs all packed in in a claustrophobic way like this though as I think it gives a really immediate sense that there are loads of them.
