Thekla Digital Thumbnails 62-71

Thekla is the city constantly under construction and as with some of the other cities of this nature, I couldn't help getting some inspiration of some kind from the Tower of Babel myth, as a tower being built constantly and wanting to reach the stars at the cost of back-breaking work. To have city being build every day but never finished would be such a daring project that it takes into account Human arrogance for creating impressive feats of manpower. Something that worked with this idea is to make the construction look like fingers pointing up. I put more emphasis in the background surrounding area of the city than others, as something from the text stood out to me as the night sky being a part of the city.

  1. I'm drawn to your Thekla thumbnails, Zoe: I think you need to think a little more about composition, the build-up of components and how they're ordered for the eye. Give some thought to the relationship between foreground, mid ground and background - scenes built up in layers.
