Skyline-Illustration Friday




These three images go along with my Street Scenes series, and are pen and ink depictions of the city center that the series takes place in. A combination of old myths, fairy tales, and actual buildings that exist in our own 'world.'

The series itself is at a standstill. I've begun reading Bill Willingham's comic 'Fables' (published by DC/Vertigo), and it bears some resemblance to what I've been trying to do. Although there are quite a few things that are different; Willingham is a little more literal in his storytelling, while I'm trying to be a bit more symbolic. Once I get this conundrum worked out, I do intend on continuing the series.

These are great! I like the first one especially. Somehow, it triggers my fantasy.

These are excellent! I like the contrast you create in value and sharpness of line, and the perspective in the top picture makes those buildings look scary! Great work:>
