    Lookin' good to me, although those 'legs ' look a tad to spindly to realistically hold that weight.

    Really like the illustration, cant wait for the coloured version! Looks very nice :)
     
  5. I think the keyword there is 'realistically', it is a walking city after all.
     
  6. Thanks, coloured version now posted.

  8. Really kind. I have half a mind to do a slightly bigger version, this one is 240x110mm. I'd like to get even more detail in.

    The illustrations gothic overtures are so fitting for this time of season, it's like a snapshot of an unknown adult Christmas tale. Would've liked a greater sense of motion from the legs but other than that it's a fantastic piece.
     
  12. Thanks very much. I am historically pretty terrible with colour, so keeping it subdued helps.
     
  13. Thanks for your comment. I think it's one of those things where I have a very clear narrative in mind - in this case the city is ponderous, maybe taking a generation to cross a valley. Maybe that would become clear with some text (there's a short story in there somewhere).

  14. No idea! I'm a graphic designer by profession, never sold an illustration.
