Complex Lights by Omar-Dogan Complex Lights by Omar-Dogan
This was done in winter 2000, I was working at Nelvana at the time. I lived in Hamilton and worked in Toronto, and the commute was about 90km each way!

Traffic is terrible in Toronto, and yes i have been many times to NYC and visited Tokyo and Cairo, and Toronto traffic is terrible.

So i would leave to head home at 7 and then it wouldnt be too bad. As a result i had time, so i would draw a bit afterwards to kill time, I coloured this one, but many other 'afterwork sketches' are BW.

Cool perspective mr dogan,it's still hard for me to learn about vanishing points,and still confuse if i draw a background with many lines,like city environment or building

can you give some tips??,hehe just want to learn mr.dogan,thanks before

I've always admired your environment designs. The sheer details of this is overwhelming, it gives you a nice feeling lik eyour present in the picture. Ya must have done a lot of sight seeing to capture the realism of a city district.

Do ya use a drawing board when ya do work like this?

this was drawn on a desk in a sketchbook with a cup of coffee and a ruler.

I sketched it out roughly in pencil and then used a tech pen, other than that, no special utensils at all.

:wow: Not any of the perspectives are flawed or off point and you accomplished that with just a ruler!
