This is actually an idea that I attempted two years ago, but at the time I didn't have the skills to finish it satisfactorily. I spent something like 10 hours on the first version before giving up

and My Universe
for). It's a fantastic feeling to have finally finished this.
As part of the course, we were asked to try as many techniques as we could. I ended up using a bit of photography for the buildings, with heavy repainting.
