City Bird by Articuno City Bird by Articuno
This is me today, a proper city bird. This is the view taken from my balcony at night, Leeds railway station is to the left and countryside is to the right.. it's a wonderful view, too bad I could only get this portion in :>
Down on the bottom right is the Leeds-Liverpool canal and although you can't see it, just to the left of where the image cuts out is the River Aire. The bridge in the middle is the old railway bridge.
This took about 3.5 hours, just a quick thing I wanted to make. The Arti was drawn completely with tablet pen, no pencil and paper for once, that's what took the longest though!

By the way, because of stupid people like DRF, I'm gonna say it again, I TOOK this photo from my balcony. Duh.

Reminds me of the way New York City looks at night back here in the U.S.
Great shot, btw. Although i could see how it would be hard to operate a camera when you have wings...

Articuno shines no matter where it goes! That goes for you too! Your talent shines no matter what you draw! (Or in this case photo manipulate;))
2nd fav Pokemon of all time! Forever and always! ^_^

If I saw that flying through the air in my hometown in the South-East, I would have only 1 thing on my mind: "Master Ball GO!"

That aside, great image.

And to the person who was saying about not revealing where you live etc - just do one of those Home Alone things where you trap the whole house. Sorted.

Isn't giving out so much info about where you live over the internet dangerous, though? I'd sure be scared if i did that. D:

Why is it any different from leaving your own house? Either way someone's gonna know where you are coming from.

True, but there are evil people that go on the internet for the sole purpose of finding others who give out alot of info. Or that could just be over-exaggeration. :3

People do that in real life too, they go to random places where other people are, follow them home etc. You are NEVER safe no matter where you are. It makes no difference, so yeh slight exaggeration there XD
