St. Louis Arch by mallaard St. Louis Arch by mallaard
I was surprised when my work asked the employees for submissions for a sketch competition based on the St. Louis Arch. I suppose it has something to do with a branch office there or something, and I waited until the very last moment to decide to participate. I did this last night, obviously using a couple pieces of photo reference. I went with a sort of Al Williamson graphic B&W look because it was quicker, plus I thought the Arch lent itself to that treatment.

Very nice, my friend. You captured the beauty of St. Louis. Now I'm even more excited to move back to the city I was born in.

I love the simplicity of this one. It could be a pumpkin pattern.

Wow, you're right, it really could! I'd lose some of the cloud stuff if I were to do that, but otherwise it should work. Glad you like it!

I wanted something to carry a strong diagonal swoosh throughout the image so that's what I did with the clouds. I only wish I had made them a little more consistent in their angle, and I think it's a little too fussy near the middle.
