I decided to experiment a little few days ago =w='' And subject of my experiment is scenery >w> Just a bit of training for backgrounds >w<'' As haven't really drawn urban landscapes - decided to do one. To notch up a challenge, decided to do one besides water or with reflection, but big cities are most beautiful at night with such a sight. This is the result >w>''

City displayed here - Chicago.
Reasons - a few of my good friends lives near by and i have never been there either (yet).

Photography used as a reference. And i might repeat this experiment after some time with different scenery >w>'' Possible lot of mistakes here, but meh - it was my first time with something like this XD And i had fun =w=~ Water was interesting to draw too..

Meduim: Wacom Bamboo Pen&Touch, Photoshop CS2
Time: 3 days, evenings... about 10 hours total (?)

Reference: [link] painted part of this photography. Photography is NOT mine, used as reference.

Do NOT use without a premission or claim this work as yours. Do NOT remove or edit out the watermark in any way.
