I started by going through other students' projects as inspiration. I had no clue what I would tackle with this project, so I wanted to see what everyone else was working on. The student that did the city really inspired me, but I knew I didn't have the time to commit to that big of a project. Instead, I went a little smaller.
I got a new Wacom pad a few days before and I've been working on small projects to get used to the new screen. I sketched these up in Photoshop. You can tell that there were a few things that I couldn't decide on.
Here's the line work for the final image that was created in Illustrator. I changed the roof of the far away building, added a fire escape, changed the look of the door, and a few other minor things. I also completely forgot about the Awesome Actions, so I did all of this by hand. It took way longer than I anticipated (a few hours at most).
Here's the final piece. I decided to go with simple colors and I love the clean look. There's a few things I would tweak and I know the alignment would be so much better if I had remembered to use the action items. But overall, I'm fairly happy with how it turned out especially with this being my first time doing this.
