Dream Cities

Tell me more…..

Comment: Also known as Splendid Cities, this is good drawing from Alice Chadwick. You are taken on a tour of imaginary and real cities, each image capturing the icons and culture of that city. This is a book that I'm colouring right through and hope to finish this year. 

Here is my video of the book completely coloured. Enjoy!

Paper quality - occasional flaws, and you can't use alcohol markers/pens or watercolour pencils without bleed through and paper warping. Water based pens and pencils are fine. Always test on a page at the back first.

Layout - all double page spreads on both sides of the page meaning that you lose some image into the spine and this can be annoying at times!

Pluses - interesting and contrasting range of images.
Minuses - paper quality and layout - getting into the spine.

Image 1 - Doorways
