Cityscapes have been a long standing gap in my range of skills, partially because they take a lot more planning and references then just a quick character sketch. Perspective and scale has to be applied, windows have to align, and foreground, middle-ground, background, and all that good stuff has to be accounted for. Although it definitely taxed my patience at times, I feel my efforts paid off handsomely in this case, with the line-based, monotone style successfully evoking the midcentury look that I was going for. Next time around I’ll be adding higher contrast to the colored shadows, more detail, and maybe even some human figures. To be continued . . .
A particularly time-consuming panel I created over the weekend for the “Margot” project. I’m excited to get a chance to portray my characters in a figurative rather than literal sense.
Sarko’s delusions of grandeur are presented as a deck of cards, with himself (naturally) as the ace of spades. The background cards represent three avenues of power: money, sex, and brute force. As always, the project itself can be found here
