Awesome job with this illustration as well as the step by step process.
‘Our great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is privately controlled. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world. No government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of small groups of men.’ - Woodrow Wilson
The annoying symmetry killed this piece. Especially the uber lazy copy flip-horizontal buildings. And on that 'note' the overall composition is wasted to the dynamic figure. I thought DJ's impact their surroundings? Not in this piece.
The graphic is more about a central focal point illustrated - than it is about an overall composition. It seems almost as bland as a technical exercise.
Are the buildings really that annoying? The point of the symmetry was to mirror the nature of the turntables - notice how all of the elements from outward in lead the eye to the main focus which is the character? It wasn't done as an attempt to take any shortcuts or anything if that's what you're implying. Anyway, I'm sorry you disliked the piece.
