    Wip dried-up lake city - B&W 3d drawing WIP

    hi!
    this is the second map I'm drawing for a book commission (first one is here).
    this one is a city situated on a small island in the middle of a lake, with canals for streets, and a huge tower complex for the royal castle.
    currently, the lake is completely dry, parts of the city are deserted, & slums are built on the dry lake bed.

    the biggest tower should have a dragon-shaped-top.

    here's the initial concept (we tried to make the entire city dragon shaped):

    then we changed for something a bit more reasonable:

    So ... what's the method we're seeing here? Photoshoppe? It's looking nice, btw.

    it's mostly PS.
    the perspective lines were done in MSPAINT, it's actually easier - i make a huge canvas, play around with the perspective until i can "frame" the city somewhere in the middle, then magnify it & add as a layer in photoshop.

    Beautiful, just beautiful. I love a good perspective drawing and this one looks like it's going to be awesome, plain and simple.

    Your style is so cool. I have more than a few from your gallery in my 'inspiration' folder. This one should be great. Can't wait to see it done!
