City by shilin City by shilin
I had SO MUCH FUN WITH THIS DRAWING I kinda wanna polish it to finish (yes this is a clean rough not a finished piece) but I don't know how good this would be as a print lol

When my girlfriend and I first got together, I went to NYC where she lived to visit her around christmas. Her parents didn't know about this at the time so we had nowhere to be, we just wandered the streets of nyc, which just happened to be rainy and cold as fuck, at some point we were just running from store to store for shelter from the rain and wind, but it was a very memorable time for me between us. I just wanted to draw the drenched streets again with auras of lights amidst the dark silhouettes of buildings all around and a little patch of nice sky over :D

As someone who used to live near the city, have family in the city, and currently living in the suburbs, I have a love/hate for the city (and suburbs too). It's an interesting place to travel around in, but I would never live there directly.

To anyone else out there who might eventually wander the streets of NYC, be careful as the crime rate is terribly high, murder is considered common and quite a lot of crime happens at night. Just stay safe is what I'm saying.

A beautiful illustration and a lovely anecdote!  

The contrast of the reflections... the soft blur of the streetlights and the clear reflection of the buildings... seems unique and breathtaking, and neatly enfold the characters into their own little world.

I love the expression in the characters. I can't draw digitally to save my life. I really like people who have the talent to master those tablets.

Sometimes it just does’t work for the story, and that’s okay. But at least you can have these cute images :)
