About City Walk
City Walk is another digital sketch, this one depicting a futuristic city at sunset. I employed many of the same techniques in this image as I did in Butte. I particularly like the color contrast between the foreground buildings and the background landscape and sky; the grayer foreground colors suggest the lengthening shadows of sunset and create a sense of depth in an otherwise flat image.

City Walk was sketched directly into Photoshop using a pen tablet tool. This technique offers a lot of flexibility, but my computer systems outgrew the pen tool (serial port anybody?), and I no longer use it. Ultimately, I prefer sketching with physical media such as pen or pencil, rather than digitally.
