Third in a series of imagined cityscapes, drawn into a 6.5" x 10" sketchbook. The inspiration grew from an isometric cityscape doodled into a much smaller sketchbook during coffee breaks. The emphasis was on rooftops, clusters, and street layout, which inspired a nicer version, rendered in ink and gray markers to create a sense of depth. In turn, this inspired a final polished version, based on those two sketches. Most of the pencil work was done in cafes, while the ink and marker work was done in my studio, with careful thought given to the shades and distribution of the gray tones. Ink was done with Sakura Pigma Micron pens, and color washes done with Prismacolor Design Markers in tones of 10%, 30%, and 60% cool gray.
Thanks for viewing. To see more about this project, including photos of the actual drawing in progress, please visit this project on Behance.
