The garage sale by boum The garage sale by boum
Here goes...

This is my first "real" project for my " Conception of Background and Accessories" class. We had to draw a street involving a garage sale, but the buildings had to show traditional Quebecan architecture, so I went all fancy and borrowed lots of books about Montreal and ended up with this. I must admit that I'm very, very proud. It started off as a complete failure and I was very disappointed, but then I did the furthest house (with the fancy roof) and it gave me some sort of ego boost and the rest was done in no time.

"No time" is a bit exaggerated... I spent something like 22+ hours on it. 12 hours at school, 10+ at home. This freakin' line hierarchy thing is KILLING me. I put a lot of effort in it, so I hope I'm gonna get a decent mark, otherwise I'll probably commit suicide.

There are some errors even I can see. The stairs are so damn wrong but erasing them would be killing the picture. (I hate doing stairs, damnit.) That's a very discreet garage sale indeed, but I didn't want to hide all the crazy little details. So there.

Oh yeah, I had to scan it in parts (the original size is 9"x14";), so for some dark reason the top left corner is missing.

Cheese.

that's so clean it's almost scary. i know nothing about backgrounds, but i can tell you that as a picture it's awesome.
and without those little mistakes, it would be *too* perfect.

Dammit I thought I commented on this! I think you should be really proud of this. The perspective is great and it just looks wonderful. I love the linework and all the little details you put into this :)

Nope, ain't going to colour it... I like it B&W and besides, I don't have enough time for that. x_x; You can try yourself at it if you want, but I don't have a bigger version of it and the top-left corner is missing....

This goes BEYOND "well worth the effort." I had a class similar to that in college... stairs kicked my ass, too. They can be SO tough to draw. ~.~''

If you don't get AT LEAST an A- on this piece, I'd kick your teacher's ass. >.>'

So that's the perspective/background homework you talked about. Wow, it's fantastic. You know, I do not spend sooo much time on backgrounds and perspective... so this makes me really breathless.
