As well as Despina, Isidora was also a city that I enjoyed the description of. As I kept reading about it I was again reminded of a city in the Algarve, mainly the square of Vila Real de Santo António, my dad's hometown. Because of the square in Vila Real being so destintive I felt as though if I was to choose Isidora i could encorperate that design of the square into the final concept pieces.
One of the cities I did find hard to draw down was Zara, mainly because it seemed so boring to me, I couldnt imagine how to make the city feel vibrate and alive and while some of the aspects of the town, like the astronomer's glass towers the rest of the description was too un interesting to me to figure out how to make sense of how that city would work.
