This is something I've been working on slowly over the past 2 months. I'd like to become even better at backgrounds, perspective and detail and this exercise was a way to show where my weaknesses lie and also how far I've already come.
It was originally based on the Chinatown area in Leicester Square, London, but along the way it split off from reality and I began just making up the buildings and background shapes as I went along.
I really think.. I could have continued working on this for hours and hours longer, but it's also as far as I care to go for now. Might update it in the future but more likely I'll start a new piece!
Hope you like *ps I originally drew this in CYMK but had to flatten and change it to RGB for deviantart for some reason.. JPEG's can only be uploaded with a preview image and then not allowed in certain categories??
So if it looks flat, I apologize. This is more how it should look - twitter.com/Sorbet_and_Rice/st…
The work in progress;
