Tonight I'm posting some collections of Indus environment roughs, most of which were drawn at the local landromat. This is actually the second batch to go up tonight, following a rather rough batch I just posted to scraps [link]
It's been awhile since I posted any of these type of rough environment layout thumbs as I actually do them often but tend to pick the ones I like most (and occasionally share rough ones like the previously posted scraps) to share here.
These 3 got the full color treatment with the bottom "pipes" locale getting a good deal more love, what can I say I had fun with that one. These were all small illos I riffed out while doing laundry. The tables there are pretty damn small so it's not always the best place to set up shop with books and a sketchpad but I make do and am usually happy with the results.
Indus is endless artificial environment; buildings, cement, rust, dirt, trash, sodium vapor haze, smoke, pipes, mystery. Indus is old, lived in, aging and decaying. The landscape often evolves, new buildings emerge under construction as old buildings are torn down or simply collapse. More often than not massive entire swaths of Indus real estate are either abandoned or closed off. The sun never sets on Indus, the sky never shines and the cities never sleep.
