Illustration Friday: SKYLINE

variations on a theme...

so I've been reviewing the current submissions and I noticed that most are city skylines - is it that trees and nature are considered more landscape than skyline? I guess that's why I went for silhouetted skylines. the image above is a digitally edited photo I took in Hong Kong - I loved how you could look through the jungle to the city... it was a bizarre juxtaposition that I think works particularly well for this theme.


can anyone recognize the figure in this one? this was created using several photographs from japan and colored pencil sky from another piece I did.


people in the sky... don't know what I was going for here - but it came out so here you go.

ugh - I wish I had more time, enough to actually DRAW something! :(

All three of your pictures have different stories to tell...
I missed HK and Victoria's Peak looking at your 1st pic, while the 2nd one reminded me of the Iron Giant. I love your people in the sky most of all, for I always believed that there are eyes watching over us all the time... :D
Great job!!!

There's a fascinating progression from the top image to the bottom...as if your imagination was breaking through and allowing images to appear! The top one is simply beautiful. The trees are like intricate black lace curtains. The middle one is still and solitary with the huge moon, and then there's that figure...what is it? It looks like a big robot! This reminds me of the movie A.I. when all the robots are scrounging around for spare parts and the big moon balloon comes and catches them. The bottom one...well...faces in the sky...I like it. All three are great.

I really enjoy that dark silhouette against those colorful images. Very nice! I think the theme works wonderfully ... the natural jungle overlapping the concrete one.
