    There are numerous issues with scale. Also, the stripes on the curved building aren't curved. The single bar outside each of the windows on the building to the right are also not aligned in perspective so they don't appear to be part of the window frames.

    I'd put some pigeons and some people in the scene to help get a better sense of scale, and make it look less like a ghost town.

    David_a_ray I forgot that I had to give a sense of scale in the drawing. I will also keep in mind adding some people in my drawing.
    Thanks for the feedback, this helped me a lot!

    They're also rather simplistic. Urban landscapes usually gain more realism with more details.

    Those window panes, for example, could reflect the sky and show some rythm. The building on the right side with the arched windows could also have more volumetric variance.
    Is this a sketchbook? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    The real thing that makes a city look real (besides people/cars) is junk. No city sidewalks are completely barren. Think of all the signs you see, benches, garbage cans, bus stops, advertisements, Hot Dog carts, bicycles, etc. Downtown Tokyo or Shanghai is an extreme example with signage taking up literally every available space, but even an average city has plenty of things taking up street space.

    I think I should have added more details to the buildings, I will keep this in my mind while drawing now. Thanks for the feedback.

    That makes sense I should have added benches, garbage cans etc. Those small details are what make the city feel alive and I struggle with drawing people that's why there are no people.
    Thanks for the feedback.
