Greenville, AL Line Drawing

Here's the line art for Greenville, Alabama:
This is going to be a fun one. The buildings have cute proportions, and there are goofy characters in the balloons and roaming the area. And I'm going to color it with an oily look, sort of like in this Thank-You Card I painted.

Hopefully I'll have the color and signage done on this map in a week or two.

Gardendale, AL Line Drawing

I just finished the line art on Gardendale, Alabama. This also includes some stuff in Warrior, Morris, Mount Olive, and Fultondale.

I inked it in a skritchy, croquil sort of style, and I plan to paint it with a watercolory look. I'm hoping that'll make it seem like a cool, old, pirate map or something . . . except for the fact that it'll be covered with ads and logos.

Here it is so far:
