NYC Illustration Process

 photo nyc_process_zpscdd978e4.jpg Here's a little peek into the process and progression of my NYC illustration. I had anticipated the colouring would take me a week to complete, but I was way off the mark. 15 days, countless hours of screen staring, and thousands of Manhattan windows later, I was finally finished. Egads. Exhausting. I often have to work quite quickly on pieces due to my short attention span. If I take too long to get something finished, I end up bored and rushing to get it done and onto the next thing! I'm trying to treat these pieces as tests for myself to see things through properly - but perhaps for the next one I'll cheat a little bit and not include quite as many teeny tiny windows.
