April 16th, 2003;; My second sketch done with the DSG, or Daily Sketch Group. I was the only person who actually liked this topic; my sketch was so large I had to splice it together. After I sketched in the mermaid leading you into the city, I started adding the towers. Stairs and the like would have been redundant, so that's why I choose to do pinnacles instead of castles. I like how they look worn by the sea. I'm pretty sure there isn't actually kelp that far below the surface, though.
I'm not so sure I like the idea of having another mermaid off to the side...it kind of ruins the feeling of desolation.
