I have a Google satellite view of the Newport Beach, Laguna Beach, and San Clemente area.? I want to reduce this to a VERY elegant, simple, but artistic rendering using imagination, color, and artistic ability to? draw a REPRESENTATION of the coastline with these 3 cities shown, plus (smaller, and in the distance) Los Angeles (45 mile distance not to scale) to place and locate Newport Beach and the other 2 cities for people who might not know the Newport Beach area.
The background of the drawing should be transparent. The marker for Los Angeles should be a solid circle, the other cities by star outlines.
The only text on the rendering of the area should be the city names and, in the blue of the Pacific the words "American Riviera" (no quotes).
The image will be used in a banner ad, along with some text.? It should be lightweight (as it will naturally be if we are able to capture? and artistically evoke the feeling of the place, rather than a picture of the place. Jpg or Png is probably OK (open to suggestion... will be used? in a Flash banner by my programmer). Size should be scalable between 200x200px and 250x250px (text should be vector so it can be scaled smoothly)
I visualize something that is understandable, but almost a water-color look (not a cartoon look, as what I am selling is $2MM+ luxury homes on the 'American Riviera'), with hints of color to indicate the Pacific and the coast... visualize a coast line drawn with a brush that narrows and disappears at the ends of the line representing the coast... visualize water shown by brush stroke hints of it for the ocean + appropriate color for the city names and coastline color hints.?
In a word, I am looking for stylized, understated elegance, commensurate with the high priced homes involved.
Please see the satellite image attached for ideas.
