If I had the time to work on this some more, I would make the sky part a solid block with a light gradient, rather than cutting out the building shapes – I had some issues filling the building layer with color on the first pass, so there were patches of sky showing through the windows. I’d also darken those receding building faces to contrast more with the pigeons & the laundry. Overall though, I like this little world.
We started the assignment by making a large number of loose thumbnails and then refining down to five clearer sketches. Can you find the sketches that eventually turned into the final piece?
