I need a little advice on enviroment drawing. Say you were drawing a scene where a charcter was standing in the middle of a city. How would you go about it?

STEP ONE: Draw the city.
STEP TWO: Draw your character somewhere inside of it.

It's that easy!

PS: No, seriously, you might want to be more specific. Do you want just a static shot of your character standing in the middle of some intersection? Do you want a fully-concieved city that your character can move around in and interact with over the course of several storylines? Do you just want a big map with a little “You Are Here” dot showing where your character is? Know exactly what it is you want to do before you start figuring out how to do it. It makes things a lot easier.

That makes since I guess I should plan these places out a little more.

For a city scene, I would draw it as this poorly (and quickly) drawn outline looks like.

…Alas, with a bunch more background detail and less character detail

Makes since to do it that way. I think I'll try that. Thank you.

Refrence photos (or real life scenes) are the greatest thing in the world.

I KNOW FOR A FACT!!!! that when drawing landscapes, the farther something is the lighter it gets. draw real dark-colorful buildings in the front, and as they go back, add a white hue to them. also, the sky, it gets lighter closer to the horison too.
