City Tutorial by Pharaoh-Ink City Tutorial by Pharaoh-Ink
:iconpsionikubi: wanted me to make a skyscraper tutorial, and I was super flattered. >w< I'm not very knowledgeable, but I hope that this tutorial helps anyone who is struggling, and if you have any questions, I'll do my best to answer. :)

For this, I am using Photoshop CS4.

If I can possibly a suggestion for this tutorial, a good rule of thumb is that to make your city look like its receding in space, you make the windows of the buildings behind the first row of buildings have smaller windows, and so on, creating the layering effect you get when you look at a cityscape. It's also good to occasionally have a darkened window here and there in your rows of windows to give off the illusion that not all of the offices have an occupant inside and that some of the rooms in the building are not in operation during the day. =D

Just thought I'd add. =) This is an incredibly useful tutorial though. I especially love the part about how to apply the glow; a lot of people seem to forget about the Layer styles tool and try to paint on the glow themselves, which usually has...mixed results depending on how skilled you are with photoshop.

That's such a wonderful suggestion, if I ever make another city tutorial someday, or even just a city background, I'd love to implement your advice, that would be a lot of fun. I think it'd also be a more realistic city as well. Maybe I might try to do a daytime one as well! It's definitely good practice to get into. I just finished playing Deus Ex: Human Revolution, and in the game you're constantly surrounded by cities and architecture, so that's been pretty inspiring.

You're very kind though, thank you, I hope people will find some use out of it.

;asjfd Nevermind about the text size, I remembered about the download link for the FULL full view >XD The font itself is a little bit hard for me still but at least I can make it all out now~ <D

Don't worry Kito, I just got done resizing all the text, I'm uploading the new version now. :) Hopefully it helps.

Very nice tutorial here girl~ The star part was actually especially helpful because I've sometimes forgotten the steps for putting that together- even if I've done it in past pictures xP

Probably my only hang up is that even with full view the text seems a little small, and with the type of font it is the words look a little bit close together. In recent months I've developed a new sort of tic that tends to make my eyes go out of focus so it's just a little bit hard to look at for me :iconlazepoolplz: Everybody in my family except for me has needed glasses so I wouldn't be surprised if I'd have to get some soon myself >XDD

My apologies, Kito! I allowed downloads on it, and that seems to make the file larger and easier to see. I can always stretch out the words though, no problem. I'm glad that you told me, I wouldn't want you or anyone else to be uncomfortable while reading. :)

Not a few seconds after leaving that message did I notice it, at at that size it is easier to see the text overall. :D
But yeah- either spacing the text out or choosing a less bold(?) font would help a lot. I think the font you picked here would work really well for titles and headings of 1-5 words or so, since I do like the style of it. :>
