"Chilling at the bus stop"

My latest Throwback picture from back in the day. I originally completed this picture in 2005. I had this cool idea in my head of showing some local kids hanging out in the city waiting at the bus stop. This was originally an exercise in coloring backgrounds. However, it turned out a lot better than I thought it would. I started off drawing everything in pencil, then inked the drawing in black & white. Next I scanned the image in Photoshop & added the colors last. I also used a photo of a some inner city for reference because I wanted the colors to have that kind of grungy, urban-type feel to it.
