Drawing the Reno skyline was both a lot of fun and one of my least favorite things ever.

Nice first page! Very great job on the Reno establishing shot with the light beams shooting up into the air and the busy streets.

Also, Maks scoot scootin’ along there.

Did you use references of Reno to help you with this at all? I’d imagine that was part of the process.

Thank you!! And for reference: yeah I use reference a lot, doing a silhouette skyline is one thing but doing a filled out one takes a lot more time hahaha. There's a few buildings I tried to use to have Reno be recognizable as itself.

Have scooter will travel, especially if you've been threatened and are hungry and tired.

That lighting does indeed look like it was a massive pain, but it looks great! Nice job with that establishing shot.

The lighting was the easy part! It's just erasing the tone. Thank you! I'm happy how it turned out.

Honestly the worst part was all the trees

Love the cityscape! I love drawing buildings but damn do they take along time! Using a reference is sooo nice.

Maks definitely looks like he got a little too friendly with some asphalt that's for sure

This might be a weird detail to notice but I love the telephone wires. They turn this from a simple overhead shot to a lived-in cityscape. Gorgeous details all around! :D

Establishing shot sustains massive glass shattering damages!

Drawing landscapes is such a pain in the ass that can make you regret the very moment you decided to put a pencil on paper and draw comics, but it's also SO DAMN SATISFYING once you start to figure the whole thing out and eventually finish the piece, so I can relate, lol. Awesome job with the sceneries here *O* them reflections on glass, omg *_*
