Halloween-ish Cityscapes

Witchy Boot Village
2.5″ x 3.5″ Copics, fine liners, white gel pen

It’s back to the cityscapes around here, with a bit of Halloween flare. The 100 Cityscapes Project is up to 25! My favorite bit is probably the candy corn mailbox.

2.5″ x 3.5″ Copics, fine liners, white gel pen

Also, hat houses. With tiny hat house numbers. Sort of Halloweenish.

Snowglobe City
2.5″ X 3.5″ Copics, fine liners, white gel pen

One more, not very Halloweenish. Done about the same time as the City in a Bottle. I should really look into doing proper light reflections on glass. At some point. If you know some good resources for learning about light reflections on glass, please share!

Thanks for dropping in!

    Oh my! These are insanely cute! Please tell me you will make some (and participate) in the Halloween art-a-thon so I have the chance to trade for one. AMAZING! I love all of the details and the theme rocks my Halloween world! They are so good.

    Hey Cindy,
    is it Halloween already? We don’t do it here … it’s spring … but I remember seeing fabulous Halloween decorations in the States when I was there in autumn (sorry, fall!) a couple of years ago. I love your boot town and snow globe, but given the choice, I’d want to live in number 2, Hattown. It’s so vibrant and I think snow would slide off the roof well. Thanks for visiting my rarely-updated blog, and happy Halloween!

    Love them! So much detail in whitchy boot village, I fancy the penthouse. Hattown is just fascinating me and feel I want to go and sit on the kerb. You’ve also aptured the glass in the snowglobe city so well. Another three great cards Cindy.

    These are fantastic! How can you be so prolific…..

    I love the Boot Village!! Details are amazing.

    Snow Globe City is wonderful…..I think you’ve done a nice job of capturing glass reflections on the globe. Would LOVE to see more variations of them……maybe a series of ancient castles in the globe!

    The candy corn mailbox rocks! I love them all, but the snow globe is totally fun. I just ordered more colors of copic pens. They are seriously expensive, and it will take time to build a good selection of colors. I’ve been experimenting with them. Getting the feel of them and learning what I can and can’t do with them, but haven’t achieved anything worthy of sharing on my blog yet. I so admire your work.

      You’re too kind! It definitely took me a long time to collect a nice bunch of markers. And I’m still at it! In fact, I recently colored a Copic chart and I was surprised how many empty spaces it has. And I’m still learning them, too. I recently used some watercolor paper, and also illustration board, and I remember why I don’t use them so much. They suck up so much precious ink! :)
