High Tower Street - West [color] by SirInkman High Tower Street - West [color] by SirInkman
PS color and texture from pencil drawing

So on another road from the town of Old Gilgenny on Carmegenny Island, in a fantastical setting of a story I've been developing for a while now. Nope... still don't have that map ready. It's proving to be more than originally expected. If you saw the pencil drawing you'll notice some changes or rather additions on the right side. There was too much empty space just past the blue wood building so I had to sketch in some stuff in PS to complete it. Once I did that the door was open and I added a bit more. Signs of life... crows in town. Lots of them. The nice parts of town are looking a bit darker. I didn't add people in there as I haven't decided on the level of technology and such for the story so didn't want to commit myself to something just yet. I did a simpler fade type of clouds because the other styles I tried just looked too busy next to everything else.
I referenced shochin's crow image notaku's world vi for the crow. My first bird painting so I was pleased.

Here's the pencil drawing...  and the other Old Gilgenny builds and sketches. Bentwood House might be on the edge of town.

Have you considered adding a few people to the scene?  This is great- suitable for book illustration for sure- but it seems static and empty without people.

I'm also thinking that something like this, with a bit more activity, would be great artwork for my upcoming RPG (and I am still signing artists for that project)

Thanks Dan. I stated in the description the reason for the lack of people. It's okay. I know most people don't really read the descriptions anyway. ;)
I do prefer focusing on the architecture [especially as this was for a personal project] but if a client wants something particular then I do my best to provide what they are looking for.

Excellent work, I enjoy looking at your buildings they have a D&D feel to them. I can really appreciate the detail that you put into each drawing, you really capture the viewer attention. I look forward to seeing what you do next.

Thanks Joshua. I used to DM so D&D fantasy does creep into my work a lot. :)
Right now I'm working on a color version of this piece - might be up this weekend. As well as like, 10 or 12 other pieces. :D

There's just too much awesome here.  I love your color choices and the delicate shading.

A bit more saturated than back stair street but not too bright.
It seems that some would prefer a stronger more contrasted shading.
That seems to be the wider choice by many - dark worlds with only a small hint of light to create sharp contrast.
C'est la vie. I am not a people pleaser. :D
