Sorry gang, I really cheated on this one. Pretty much just traced a photo, colored it and faded it into the background, so I feel bad. But I hope it helps:

That looks excellent! I like how the lamp and the steel holding the lamp is tilted rather than perfectly straight up and down, gives it a more haphazard, believable feel.

It doesn't matter how you did it, as long as we get some more good inspirational concept art. Besides, all you did was copy the architecture. The whole mood is your doing.

Interesting take on that, Dom. Thanks for always being artistically observant ~
Much appreciated (really)

A DeviantArt photo-manipulation copyright policy (where you have to get the photographer's approval before posting photo-manipulations on DeviantArt) led me to get the photographer's approval on my alley. (I admit that I probably didn't need his approval, but DeviantArt's policy is vague and got me slightly concerned, so I wanted to lean on the safe side.) Here is the approval I received a couple months back. Just posting this here for our project's records:

I saw your Kilkenny Alley photograph from Ireland online:

I had a feeling that I knew already that place, when I saw your drawing (and source photo) for the first time.... And your email only confirms my intuition... :) What a coincidence.

Here's another photo from Killkenny. (that's me, btw) This small town is really atmospheric and full of nice and inspirational architecture.
