Well here it is. Not quite what I initially visualized in my head but this has it's own appeal I suppose. I treated the W.I.P picture more as a concept of what I was going for and reworked things a bit for more darker palette.
Here's the early stage of lineart and blocking in light and shadow. This is where grid line comes in real handy for keeping things in perspective
From here I would use the color balance layer to get the general color scheme I'm looking for. The whole thing came together relatively quick because I kept things loose without trying to render every little detail which would've taken forever.
Then comes the fun part of scouring the internet for neon signs and other random bits, tweaking the colors, re-tweaking, and adding textures.
And there you have it. Go Canada Go!
