I have the terrible problem of one of the drawings being my
favorite (by a long shot). I call this one, Entrance. I find myself thinking why can't they all be that good? Did I just get lucky?
1. This is a completely fictional image but it feels so specific and accurate to me. I believe I have been here before. The light is logical enough for me. The space and how things overlap are clear. It is not ambiguous. There is a sense of motion and energy but it is not overdone. There is a lot of shapes but they seem easy to group and follow so I don't mind. In fact, it could be said that there are only two shapes: The dark shape on the left, and the light shape on the right. If anything I would rework the lower left quad - the vertical highlight floats up and needs to be knocked down so it wraps to the shape below and transitions into the darkness.
Here is the original, just a small doodle in my sketchbook.
