Invisible Cities: Thekla and Zenobia 82 - 89

Thekla: 82 - 86
Zenobia: 87 - 89

Back to traditional thumbnails, it's quite obvious I enjoyed drawing the city of Thekla. The city that is continuously under construction - it's possible the little nick-nacks and details are what I enjoyed drawing. However, I am well aware I got carried away with the detailing for just thumbnail drawings, yet in a way, my confidence is growing with drawing cityscapes and larger area drawings. Once starting to draw Zenobia I picked up the pace and similar results of quality can be seen. My most favourites on this page would be #84, #85 and for Zenobia, #89. I have been encouraged by Phil to open and expand the "view" of the cityscapes ; to almost, zoom out, and see what is in the surrounding area. This proved to be quite thought provoking on how I would achieve this, but slowly I believe I'm getting there.


  1. I am with you on 84, 85 and 86. Your idea of how the city would be permanently under construction definitely comes across. Maybe you could do a crane drivers point of view? I also really like the shard like structure of 83.

    1. Thanks for the feedback, Emily, the crane idea is a really good idea! I was stuggling to think of different perspectives :)
