A while back I did a post called 11 hours in 30 seconds, showing a digital drawing I made of a cartoonish street. It looked like this:
It ended up standing alone on my page, so I decided, since making the first one were such fun, to try and do another one.
In the new drawing I wanted to practice drawing people.
I saw a technique I wanted to try where you basically just make out the outlines of a human being, and start drawing in the details from there on.
This worked out quite nice, and, having drawn up a few people, I needed to put them somewhere. So I made a street for them to stand on and a city surrounding to put them in.
Being done with this the real work was about to start, as every person, buidling and street needed some colour and additional shadowing.
So I set to work, and the hours just piled up.
Funnily enough I ended up using about the exact same time drawing this one as the last one.
After about 11 hours of drawing in total (not continuously..) my head ached a bit, but I could finally put the pen down and have a look at the final result. This is how it looked:
I think it ended up rather nice. Since there’s a lot of pastel colours in the drawing I’ve given it the name “Pastel city”.
When it came to the time-lapse video I couldn’t be any worse than last time, so here is a 30 second summary of all 11 hours over the Ipad:
