I finally bought a new tablet and I did a mouse-only sketch for some reason.

Probably took me 25 minutes; added the street lights (yeah, those are street lights!) as an afterthought. :)

My go, 36 minutes, Photoshop+tablet, and I inspired myself from a picture for the statue.

38-ish minutes, maybe?
Done using my Wacom Tablet and Bauhaus Mirage.

I love the coloring on yours, artifex.

i wanted to test the ink brush 20 min (

About 43min with some layer tweaks and sharpening some parts.
I used a photograph for this one as a reference, which I found some years ago in a newspaper. I liked to photograph so much, that I had to pull it out of the newspaper an
keep it.

jordygraph: Looks very nice! Also in only 35min ! I like it a lot.
Vyse-soa: Nice. I think we had some same thoughts ;) Very cool feeling !
Tema: Looks good! I think you should have tried some more grey tones.
Mats Gustafsson: Great idea, great sketch.
ReBootedOne: Haha this is funny. Yeah I was never in New York I hope it is not like your image shows :)
Samst0r: Good job! I know I have seen this statue somewhere but I don't get where it was ... ;)
May-lea: Looks good :) No idea if this is the actual sky line or something of your head ;) But I know the statue :D
FiYoG: Good work. Mouse only? Haha seems like you have to much time in your life ;)
artifex(): New York night life? Nice idea! I would have used some more colors and more advert's in the street!

Well I am not happy with my one ... and I ran out of time :( So I stopped this... also the background did not want to work ...
Photoshop, tablet, 55min

May-lea: Looks good :) No idea if this is the actual sky line or something of your head ;) But I know the statue :D

It's totally made up :) I did try to stick something roughly looking like the empire state building but I have to admit I don't know if you can see it from that point of view in real life. Oh well. Fortunately the eye of the viewer first focus on the statue in the foreground :)

I like the fact that you thought about adding pollution on your sketch, I bet it's a big problem in such a big city :)

07-04-2006, 12:07 PM
