Next lesson was designing an old San Francisco. I quickly went to a "on the nose" idea of constructing the Golden Gate Bridge. For a number of reasons didn't fly.
I took some old San Francisco buildings and placed them within the city in a comp that showed off the buildings and scale of the town.
I was advised to focus on the center building and to in large the top of the buildings to help give depth to my city.
After redrawing it a lot of times.
