I found in my larger drawings I had begun to separate the figures and I’d been arranging them which was against what I had in mind. So I went back to A3 but I really needed to get back to the rushed way I was drawing in my sketch book and when I was picking out key characteristics I’d noticed and focusing on them. The way I went around this was to watch videos of people giving tours around their city streets, this way I not only had seconds to draw the people passing but I could also capture how quickly they were travelling and, in scale, the distance they were from the camera/me. This solved my arrangement problem as I didn’t get much of a chance to look at the paper so I drew them where they were on the screen, even if that meant many areas of crossover.
