Drawing for 6/25

Staying away from leaves again today... decided to do a city skyline.  I'm still in a sci-fi mood, but there isn't anything exactly overtly sci-fi about the finished piece.

I started with this image:

...And my finished drawing:

Night time.

It took about... 2 1/2 hours I think. The photo was really just a jumping off point. In retrospect I could have probably lowered the whole thing a bit to show less water and more sky. I also used a lot of different colors... I went back and forth about maybe making the colors a little more within the same scheme, but in the end I thought the variety of colors gave it less of a polished futuristic "star trek" look and more of a realistic bladerunner type look. As Tim Gunn would say, it's a lotta look.

  1. I like it! It definitely looks like Blade Runner, also maybe the Fifth Element.
