Great graphic! I love how your style is present in every little detail and stroke of this work and how it all eventually comes together in an organised, orderly cityscape! Nice variation of flat black and white colour and detailed lines.

That's no small praise coming from you. Your landscapes are great! (Especially Rainy Day Blues, Midnight Noodles at the Arcade, etc).

I'm awed by anyone who can yield an inkpen freehand with your talent. Kudos.

Thanks. I appreciate your praise.

Perhaps it didn't really need so much... it's hard to tell when you're in the middle of it.

Woah shit! This is wonderful! The perspective and dimensions are just right. There's so much depth to this piece that really draws in my eyes.

I'm especially enjoying the shadows of the trees and buildings on the water. You can actually see the movement!

Thanks G.

I wanted to work on depth and perspective, but do it entirely freehand - so it's intentionally a little wonky.

I had the most trouble detailing the buildings. I did 'em a lot later and felt that though they turned out adequate, my lines didn't really feel smooth (perhaps because the scale was just too small).

I had fun with the water and weird trees.

Peace.
