These are my first two thumbnails for the work on the Invisible Cities project. They are parts of Anastasia and represent the fire pit and part of the canal system ending into where I would imagine that the women of the city can be "seen bathing in the pool of a garden".
After my last attempt in Photoshop, I decided not to follow a realistic approach to it, especially in the thumbnails so early on and instead, allowing my own cartoonist style to flow freely. I felt that my style complimented Anastasia well, as it creates a alluring sense of desire to find out more about this hidden power within its walls.
What I haven't shown in the thumbnails here is the "concentric" canals; merely the end piece to the system. For these, I plan to research into the aqueducts of ancient Rome before adding my own flair and curving them around the city and its walls. These images will be included in my Influence Map for Anastasia. Once my thumbnails are complete I shall arrange them and number them clearly.
