Comments for Urban Settings

Urban SettingsUrban Settings: 08/29/06

I grew up in the suburbs of San Diego but the city spread northward as I grew. There is little division between the suburbs and city proper now, especially with the skyscrapers of the "Golden Triangle" area of north University City.

For most of my adult life I've lived in more urban areas or at least closer to urban areas than I did in San Diego. I've also worked in the heart of Los Angeles and in the middle of San Francisco. All these experiences have provided a steady stream of inspiration which manifests myself in my artwork on a regular basis.

I have put together a new themed page which I'm calling Urban Settings. These pictures are divided evenly as Photoshop drawings and Bryce renders, though in the last couple of years I have been doing more of them in Photoshop than in Bryce. The regular lines of the skyscraper lends itself to many of the Photoshop tools allowing for crisp lines and share delineations of color.
