All the elements, including the background, have been colored in. I haven't begun on the final shading but thus far things are laying nicely together.
I encourage all of you to try drawing these buildings. You don't have to put the entire composition together but at least take a crack at some of the elements. They are each and every one a learning experience. Gotta tell ya, I'm having a blast.
A word about that apartment building to the right. I wanted to capture the rough texture of cement or stone siding so I brought that drawing into Photoshop and "pixilated" the walls. In Photoshop at least the siding became almost shiny to look at. It might be the color. Even a touch of guassian blur didn't tamp down the shininess.
Study it closely and see what you think. I'm not unhappy with it but it didn't turn out the way I expected. Things seldom do.
Stay tuned for the final shading.
