Apocalyptic Cityscape by markcrilley Apocalyptic Cityscape by markcrilley
I created this illustration some years ago as part of a pitch for a book series that never quite got off the ground. I really hope I'll be able to return to it someday.

Anyway, I thought you'd all enjoy seeing it. Sorry for the long gaps between my deviant uploads. I hope to be better about things in the months ahead!

All my best,

Mark

p.s. Big, big thanks to anyone who supports me by purchasing my books. All 3 "Brody's Ghost" books at Amazon: [link]
"Mastering Manga" book at Amazon: [link]

It would be nice and terrifying at the same time to see a city like that in real life. Townalicious :)

Hey-lo, MAAAARRK~! This reminds me, the comic I'm working on has a lot of action and buildings and scenery getting demolished at times; whether it be by characters crashing through them, collapsing because of age or damage, could you do a tutorial on building/asphalt/ground/tree destruction~?

Always been a big fan of Apocalyptic settings, I like the building that is nearly falling but it's being supported by another one. Great drawing.

Man, I wish I could draw like you, I mean, you make the things look sooo easy to do... I know I'm not bad at drawing, but I'm still very far to be good...
How can you make so many details!? If I try to do a drawing like this, I'll never finish it!
