A big ol’ tip on drawing cities from street-level. The drawings are pretty crude, (I did them very fast,) but I think they get the point across :) I’m sure some streets like in the first example actually exist in the world, but why would you choose to draw something so boringly bland?
Remember! Observe these things in real life as you walk around! This tip is just to make you aware. By observing in real life, is how you can really make it feel real!
Hope it helps you out!
