Still need to work on speed, on cleanliness, and a lot on hierarchy, but I'm extremely happy on how much training this assignment has allowed me to practice on environments in general.

These have all been for a project I've been doing for fun called Project Rain.  The characters I'm doing for Chavez's class are part of this environment.
And here are some interior stuffs!

Found this scan.  It's a pretty good gist of the mood and direction I was going for, which is the feeling of an older brother going off to college or something, and the childhood that is left behind.

Hi for the building details I have decided to the Kredik Shaw it is from the book Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson
The description is:
The lord Ruler's palace loomed like some kind of massive, multi-spined insect. 
On the wiki I found: 
The Hill of a Thousand Spires. Many ominous towers with large spires of metal on the top.
Here are a few ideas I have been working with so far.  I am trying to emphasize the insect and ominous looks.  I still need to work on the perspective on a few of them.
