Olde Worlde Street Scene

17 comments

I gave myself forty-five minutes to try and recreate an old fashioned photo, just using ink. No pencil sketching beforehand; just a case of start and then continue until the time is up. I ran out of time, needless to say, but I managed to get one side of the street in (although the rooftop gargoyles could have done with a little more work).

The people (yes, those funny looking blobs all over the place are people!) and the car (yes, that funny looking blob under the lamppost is a car!) were quickly added in the last ten seconds… and there were more people in the photo that I didn’t have time to include. The photo was taken in 1908, but I don’t think my sketch conveys that at all.

Still, forty-five minutes of doodling is a good way of creating than any other, I suppose! And a hundred and ten years in forty-five minutes is quite an achievement, I must say.

  1. LOL !!!! I was wondering what was under the street lamp! Thought it looked like a giant hat blowing down the street.The lines underneath it make it look like it was elevated. Well done TL!!! Not easy to do without the good old pencil and eraser! Really good job. A good way to challenge yourself…. VK πŸ™‚
