Wayne O Con­nor has been try­ing to brush up on his en­vi­ron­men­tal pieces, which is why the theme of Ru­ined City ap­pealed to him so much. “I was aim­ing for a kind of calm, serene set­ting,” he says, “so los­ing the sub­mersible, which was part of the ini­tial plan, was the only ma­jor change. It felt like a dis­trac­tion.”

In the end he de­cided to let the ru­ins, which he drew first, tell the story. The wa­ter and fish were worked in later. But Wayne, ever the per­fec­tion­ist, thinks the piece could still be bet­ter.

“The only part I’m not to­tally happy about is the fish shoal. The idea is good, but my ex­e­cu­tion a lit­tle lack­ing. I’ll prob­a­bly read­dress that in the fu­ture. It was a fun chal­lenge, and the feed­back I’ve re­ceived from fel­low fo­rum users was in­valu­able for the fi­nal touches.” MYFX ti­tle: Ru­ined City Win­ner: Wayne O Con­nor (Doc­torDark) Gallery:­tor-dark All En­tries:­ined­c­ity
