For Layout class. 8D

It's kinda maybe probably supposed to be the Treacle Mine Road Watch House in Ankh-Morpork.

It wasn't originally, but then it just... Turned into it. XD This also isn't how I imagined it before but now that I drew it like this... I kinda like it. I dunno.

I know it's supposed to be facing the Shades but that wouldn't make for a nice layout so I took some artistic licence.

I promise my next upload will be something original. X)


EDIT: I changed a few details after some great crits. c:

I almost scared when I saw this... Because this is exactly how I imagined Ankh-Morpork. O_o Especially the right side of the drawing. :clap:

Hmmn, let's see... the perspective is spot-on, the atmosphere is great, the attention to detail is there too (the cobblestones, the motto, the reflections of the street lanterns and whatnot)... Yep, amazing picture right there! =D Love it!

And for some strange reason, the little door on the left with the lantern next to it is particularly fascinating to me...

Ooooh, this is really impressive. The perspective is really good, and all the buildings are different.What I like best is the light by the lamppost on the floor, it feels as if we're moving forward or we're moving down. I really like this painting style too. Great great work

If you like, you can submit an artwork to my art contest. There are rules listed in my journal if you're interested, and feel free to send something via note~ :D The due date is March 31st.

Great job on this, this is an excellent study. ^^

Thank you for the great comment! I'm glad you like it. 8D

aaa, that contest sounds awesome but with a deadline so close, I'm afraid I probably won't be able to make it. X) I'm super busy with doing stuff for school right now. =P Thanks though!

Well, if you like, you can submit anything you want. It can be your oldest artwork or your newest one~ Anything is acceptable, save for extreme violence, nudity, and photographs.
