Brody's Ghost Cityscape by markcrilley Brody's Ghost Cityscape by markcrilley
Thanks, everyone, for your detailed comments in response to my questions about "How to Draw Manga" books. You provided incredibly helpful information, one and all!

Here's a side by side comparison of the establishing "cityscape" spread from Brody's Ghost, Book One. Note that all the signs in the rough are in Japanese; The story was originally to be set in futuristic Tokyo. It is now set in a futuristic city that is never named, a place where people from almost every country on earth live side by side.

A very big thank you to everyone who has already pre-ordered Brody's Ghost at Amazon: [link]

I am really blown away by your support!

Mark

the final looks a little too clean in my opinion. :| yes yes, its a very dirty city, but as artwork, it looks too clean ><
I don't know, maybe its preference. awesome work nonetheless!

How did you do the extra thin lines in the background? What did you use for that?

Have a question... Do you draw the rough sketch first, and then trace it on another paper, or ink the sketch and then delete the pencil?

...unless of course I am mistaken and that is not supposed to be a rail transport, but a little toy tram going around the building.

I love all the details. Awesome illustration! The only thing that seems odd is the size relationship between the apartment house and the sky rail, judging by overlap and perspective. In proper scale, The three-story house should be much smaller, or closer to us than the sky rail, meaning it should overlap the rail, not the other way around.
