Invisible Cities: Initial Thumbnails 111-190

Here are some more quick thumbnails for the cities, I took in the advice I was given and kept my thumbnails monochromatic.

This is my page for Diomira, again I was still struggling to get on with the city, I felt like I wasn't producing any strong ideas. I did however like number 114.

When drawing thumbnails for Ersilia I felt like I'd finally gotten back into producing some decent thumbnails. I really like 128, 130 and 142.

I wasn't really sure what to do for Fedora so I focused on laying down brushstrokes and went from there. I like 148 and 153.

I really enjoyed working on thumbnails for Isaura I imaged a city either full of water pouring underneath or built ontop of the water thats used as a resource. I think this page is pretty strong, I like 161, 162, 163, 165, 168 and 174.

Again I stuggled a little with Leonia so I tried to lay down shapes and go from there. I like 187 and 189.

12 cities down and only 7 more to go! I'm hoping after these initial thumbnails I'll develop some more thumbnails for a chosen city.



  1. I really like 114 and 171 it is very abstract and I am sure it will turn out to be really good when you put more detail to it later on.

  2. Some lovely stuff here, Kayliegh :) Like 142, 171, 183...

  3. 114, 152 and 155 stand out to me. A nice blend of constructivist work and German expressionism.

    Try checking out more German Expressionism. I know you've all seen The Cabinet of Dr Caligari, but there is plenty more to see.

    Also, try looking at Constructivism. It may work well for darker, leaner cities.



    A game called Grim Fandango used the influence brilliantly.



    As always, keep the drawings coming.
