Oranienstra├če


My studio is in a nice and quiet backyard in Kreuzberg. But as soon as we leave the gate we are right in the actionpacked middle of this vibrant neighbourhood.

First I made a few thumbnails to get the angle right. I needed to figure out the best way to show the many different characters that roam the street. 

 
 Slowly getting there. In the process the charcters are taking shape as well.

Here the people in the background are still too small. I want to show them bigger, even though that means bending the rules of perspective a bit...

Now that everybody is more or less in place I startet filling in the charcters, thinking of all the details like fashion, style, expression etc.

 
The final drawing in pencil

 
 Inked with pen and brush...

...and the final illustration in Watercolor!
