Zoom in for more detail!  Sorry about the crazy aspect ratio; that's what happens when you try to draw a portrait of a street, I guess.  This is the central stretch of the high street in a fictional town called Desmonton, which exists in the same universe as my animated series Papercuts - www.youtube.com/playlist?list=…

The drawing took just over a year, from the first sketch to the final selective re-inking.  I used an A2 sheet of 220gsm cartridge paper, cut it in half down the middle and stuck the two strips together end-to-end to create the right shape for the very, VERY landscapey subject matter; the image was roughed out with ordinary HB pencils, and then worked over with Uni Pin fine-liners once I was happy with the composition.

I haven't done an exact census since completing the picture, but I'm pretty sure the population is well over a hundred... thank goodness I was being lazy and drawing little box people instead of fully-detailed humans!

Might post some detail closeups later.

UPDATE: I counted the people, and the number came out at exactly 150!
