Reseda

Reseda is a neighborhood in the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles, California.
It's a culturally diverse city where Daniel LaRusso learned to be the Karate Kid, and where parts of Boogie Nights  and Terminator 2: Judgement Day were filmed. But most importantly, it's where I grew up. Endless palm trees, warm summer nights all year, and the best vegan Vietnamese food around. I wanted to create a simple image in honor of my 'hood.

Ink sketches. Trying to get the perfect flourishes!

Final stylized digital illustration. The texture is a mask of the surface of the moon, and I also added a pinkish tone to the layer.
