@Supervileg: Excellent work. it does seem flat though, at least the clouds (the buildings are rendered nicely maybe a darker tone to capture that distance effect in the background?

Painter, around two hours.

A picture a day keeps the madness at bay.

This is called 'All Natural'.

I created it with watercolours and then ink. It's the second painting I have ever done, I just bought my art supplies yesterday because I suddenly felt inspired to paint and create some nice stuff.

This took me around 2 hours, maybe a little more because I had to dry inbetween painting and inking.

This was just brought together when I thought of the view outside and brought ideas into my head and I got this. I didn't want to do a painting where it was looking through a window because I figured everyone else would do that. I tried to give the buildings some personality, especially the distant ones which should appear ghostlike (ghosts rising above the city after it's dead).

Enjoy. I'd like some comments too because i've only taken one art history class

edit: fixed size , sorry first time.

My VFX Reel - Please comment on it!
