I like how the simplicity of how light is represented by the pen but is also complex when it comes to shading. I love how there is a variety of different hatching and line weights to perfectly mimic a shadow that is cast by a particular structure.
illuhippo: “Don’t Walk Your Lady Skid Row” by Matthew Sharack. The houses and streets he creates are great. I really like the victorian/ burtonesque shapes and style. On his blog there are plenty more towns like these. And his characters fit perfectly in the settings, too.
