Above is a sketch of the New York City skyline that I did over the course of two days earlier this month. I drew this from the Jersey City side of the Hudson River – which has great views of the Manhattan skyline. I’ve been living in Jersey City for the past month and a half – with my fiance Carrie. We sometimes play volleyball in the park where I sat to draw the above image.
The buildings aren’t quite all to scale… which results from working directly in pen, not doing any pencil in advance… but overall it reads the way the Manhattan skyline looks overall.
Here’s a photo of the sketch in process:
