    here are a few drawings i did for another project, i know that taboo but i couldnt resist since they fit perfect with the topic. These arent the finished drawings, and are just proofs. in fact they are only parts of larger drawings. hope you like it. these are from a book i worte and illustrated for my senior show at school last semester.

    DSG 485 - Environment: Town of ruins

    I suppose this turned out to be more of an exercise in sketching out a city landscape. Still, I did it, so here it is.

    This is an illustration I did awhile ago on this exact same topic. Its a bit more developed than a sketch. I'm going to try and do another sketch tonight. This is ink and brush on paper.

    David York - I like the colour scheme. I'd be interested to see how it turned out.
    Soulsurfer - that has a really eerie feel to it.
    Goran - wow, that looks great. A lot of detail there.
    MAT-ST - I actually really like the close up rather than expanded view. It gives you a sense of what the whole would be like.

    Anyway, my contribution is very skritchy scratchy. I have a lot of trouble with buildings and perspective, and not much time to sit down and devote to working it out properly, so I just decided to put everything higgledy piggeldy and muck around.

    wow, you all doing these off imagination are awesome
    I didn't know where to even begin and just ended up sketching from some photo taken over 100 years ago.

    Here's mine:

    DSG 485: Environment: Town of ruins


    I employed a drastically different approach than my normal style. I did this all straight in ink (Pilot Precise pen) with no pre-pencil action, trying to concentrate on the contour lines with little/no shading or cross-hatching. Quite an excercise. The only way I tried to show depth was the the line weights (but it still ended up looking a bit flat, oh well.) I bet it would look pretty neat and add some serious depth if it was colored, tho.
    Another day, perhaps...

    dagreengo: stop playa-hatin yourself playa I dig it. And tho it may be a bit loose, i think the concept is killer; a bad-ass warrior guy walking away from his handiwork- a town ravaged and burning...nice one.
    btw, thanks for the comments. Mine does look comic-booky.

    bunnitos: I just noticed the little car with its headlights on, driving thru your city of ruins. Cool detail.

    lpetty: Awesome linework. Very cool character; has a lot of life. Did you do the whole thing in pencil and then ink the foreground? Very cool effect, sorta gives it amospheric perspective.

    goran: Very cool landscape vista. The figure really gives a sense of scale and shows how immense the city is.

    Soulsurfer: Wow. Nice lighting effects. That is a bad-ass illo for only 20 min. work.

    David York: Thats some damn fine perspective work, given that you drew it with a mouse. Nice work.

    nephilim: I really dig the various textures you created just with hatching. Very cool. The statue is a nice touch as well.

    Everybody: Nice work...cool topic.
