Background Concept


I'm tired of screwing around with this. I was just testing to see if I was capable of drawing an interesting background. I just ended ripping off Mattias Adolfsson and spending way too much time coloring.

I'm not sure why, but I was just reminded of M. C. Escher when looking at this. The thing is, it isn't that abstract of a drawing. It's just that it shows these buildings in strange curves. Escher was known for that. I just think the texture is absolutely flawless. It's strange, but still beautiful.

Only great artists like you could make something like this! My favorite is probably the tall building on the left. It really does have the best design. The colors are wonderful. There's still a sense of peace among all this absurdity. I loved that!

Wow, that's very flattering. Thanks for the review!


The thing that stands out the most for me is the two buildings leaning in together, it almost looks as if the clothesline between them is keeping them together (or something like that, I dunno.) It looks simple, but detailed, and with relaxing colors.


it looks like a simple town and i would love to go and eat at that noodle shop its such a nice drawing

you dont have to change anything about that style, its perfect. the time you spend coloring was worth it.
