The King of Omashu by selk-e The King of Omashu by selk-e
This may have been the most difficult test of patience and endurance I've given myself to date. I've never done a cityscape before and have barely scratched the surface of correct perspective and effective composition, but this beast took a while and I'm really proud of it. I feel like I've been working up to this one with everything I've been doing over the last year or two, and I'm really happy with it.

This is the fifth image in my series of drawings that are inspired by the landscape and environment of Avatar: The Last Airbender. I hope you like it because I refuse to add any more detail deargodthetinyboxes.


Edit: Thank you SO MUCH to Erithe! You're a sweetheart! The Daily Deviation was such an amazing surprise.

Gosh, I loved that part in Avatar where Aang goes back to visit Omashu. I think you captured the vastness of the city incredibly well. (: Such an excellent eye for detail! It makes me want to go back and rewatch Avatar, haha!
