Invisible Cities - A Few More Thumbnails

I did a few more pages of thumbnails today, exploring a few different cities. I also finished off page 3 from monday.

I like number 12 and 10 from thumbnail page 3, I tried using a mixture of tools to help sped up my painting. Still getting to grips with using the lasso and marquee tool.

I'm quite fond of the shapes in 9, 10 and 12. I found this city quite hard to imagine however it was also a very interesting concept. A city with no buildings, just a waste land of pipes.

Number 4 and 12 are my favourite from this page, I like the idea of spacing the city out around the canals.

I like 2, 5 and 16 from this page, I found this one a little more difficult however it is an fascinating concept to have a city underground.

I like the silhouette for 8 and 11, I found this particular city compelling. The idea that the city almost has 2 faces, seen differently by the people that visit it.

Any and all feedback is welcomed. Still trying to just throw shapes out there before I start refining these thumbnails.


  1. Thumbnails that stick out to me are- 1, 10 and 12 from page 3; 6, 12 and 13 from page 4; 6 and 13 from page 5; 7 and 12 from page 6; 6, 7 and 11 from page 7. I really love 6 from page 4, I can imagine a city behind all that steam.

  2. love 10 on the very first page - really get a sense of that ariel city - some nice mark making, Charlie.

  3. Hey Charlie, some really great stuff here. Love number 15 and 16 on that first page. Great to see such bold thumbnails, very graphical :)
