Shanghai Fusion p1 Inks Lee Oaks crowds in perspective

Shanghai Fusion p1 Pencils and Inks Lee Oaks 
Based on Tiananmen Square Massacre.
This one was a challange for drawing perspective.  Here's a tip for drawing perspective:  When drawing crowd shots like these you have to remember to keep all the people in line in regards to the horizon line.  I need to find an easier technique for indicating crowds instead of drawing each person.

You might recognize Savannah, Georgia in the scenery.  I used photo reference but redid all the perspective.   My layouts were influenced by the European format I was using.  I did these right after my move to Brussels.

This is a good technique for drawing rocks.  This is how I draw them.  Not too different from Herge's technique.
