Finally, some Firenze inspired drawings!

I finally sat down and drew.  I think it was because I just visited where Leonardo da Vinci grew up this weekend.  It was very cold up there, but the countryside was so breathtakingly beautiful.  Anyways, I'm really inspired by the architecture here in Florence-- I think its just gorgeous, and when the light hits the buildings it's even more beautiful.  I'm currently working on another storyboard/ animatic so I really want to take advantage of this wonderful city with its fascinating buildings.  [Yay for observational drawings!]  
In the drawing below there was a really old building right across from an old building; it was really interesting and an idea that I want to explore in my story-- the old next to the new/ old v. the new.  I'm also taking a creative writing class here and we read Mark Twain's "Innocents Abroad" and at least for me, it was really great.  There were a lot of inspiring lines in there. 

 This building is the back of the Uffizi as well as a roof tile study.  The tiles here are so fun looking!

The view outside of one of my classrooms:

A potential character in my story.  I'm not sure what I'll be using him for, but he was fun to draw since I usually draw female characters.
