Wow, it's wonderful. It reminds me of a fuller version of the Penne castle in France. Great job !

Thank you, this tutorial has given me ideas on how I could draw a city scape for a larger drawing that has been daunting me! Will you be creating anymore tutorials?

Maybe. I guess I haven't done a city yet, that's more spread out. You saw the "Ursidea" city I posted a few weeks ago? I'm also drawing a village for that same person. Cities are challenging because of the sheer magnitude of different structures.

HMMMM you mean a classic two-point perspective with diminishing lines? Not for this one, but I might for other stuff. I just draw this!

Plus, I get asked to do these. I just have to stop myself in the middle of drawing these and scan them. I have never taught professionally.

Actually, you should join queeky.com and do one of these... its one of those sites that lets you "play back" your drawings so you can watch the entire process in detail.

its not the only site like that, but queeky is my favorite, their in-browser paint is really easy to use (not at all like DA Muro... ahem)

just thought i should mention.

ooh a WIP! so this is what happens huh? i still honestly don't get how the render is so neat and sharp ;A; i usually end up erasing a hole in the paper or something i'm trying to get a sketch to neaten up!
Reply
:iconbuilt4ever:
Built4ever Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2012
When the paper is getting wrecked, get some tracing paper and redraw over it. I can't go too far either before I have to scrap a drawing because of erasing and re-drawing. Also, draw with light pencils first, 2H or 4H...

ah thanks for the advice ^^~ hm yeah...tracing paper- my friends tell me to use normal file paper instead of catridge since it erases neater because it doesn't have a grain smoother surface i suppose.... but cartrige paper...feels...more...arty.....[shot]

C'est excellent ! Le niveau de détail me fait rêver tellement il est poussé à l'extrême, et le style est vraiment classe, j'aime particulièrement le côté dessiné entièrement à la main, on dirait un peu une sorte de plan, de conceptart ou quelque dessin fait dans ce but, représenter simplement un paysage fantastique, avec un outil qu'on maîtrise à la perfection, et en plus on peut voir l'évolution, ça doit prendre un temps fou et il faut probablement être très minutieux... Bref, that's very good !

We need to combine wizard and engineer, like a wizaneer.

That would make a FANTASTIC futuristic story where magic and science have come together in a bond of brotherhood.

Somewhat like Warhammer 40K, only in that Science has turned into a religion! *ZOINKS!*

Built4ever Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2012
Science IS a religion sometimes, when it gets distorted. I believe there exists lost scientific knowledge, some of which explains the ancient monuments on the planet, like the Teotihuacan site, Giza, South American stuff...

Absolutely no doubts there. We're like babies re-learning much of what was already known but is forgotten.

Yes, the REALLY old religions and texts may hint at such knowledge...
