Back Stair Street by SirInkman Back Stair Street by SirInkman
original pencil drawing

The idea behind this illustration was the concept of a nice upscale old town where all the houses look so nice in the front. But in the back, on Back Stair Street the niceties of society were exposed as cracking dilapidated facades.
The time and place are relative. It could be some fantasy village or an 1800s era town.
I colored, textured and edited it later in PS

I am glad you enjoyed it. :)
It seems to resonate with people more than the others.

Hey John, I'm a terrible watcher, but once in a while I do go through my inbox...

I hadn't scene your architecture drawings before.  These are great.  Wonderful detail, and the intersecting lines and different heights make for a great composition.  You even have a door for Hobbits!

all of them are very good works. It would be interesting to see them in black ink and watercolor, or liquid watercolor :)
