A random thing I did. I used to do city skylines like this a lot, it's pretty fun.
It's 1920x1080 for wallpaper stuff, if you'd like it in another size feel free to ask.
Also, critiques welcome.

love it, Great design on buildings. Reminds me of that feel you get when being there to see the big city yourself.

I was definitely reminiscing of living in the city when I did this~

I love the look and feel of it, but her hand is quirked in such a way that she either looks like she's composing something, or should be holding a cigarette. She looks like she's puckering her lips, besides, which is what gives me the 'cigarette' idea.
As for the background: it's missing something without the one-point perspective. You could make an interesting motif out of this in the 'cardboard cut-out' sense if that's what you're going for, but it seems like you're trying to do an actual city-scape. Play around with single point perspective (which appears to be well below the station point of your image, but that's fine), and make the buildings look a little more three dimensional. It's not nearly as hard as it sounds!
Only mentioning it because you asked for critique. Otherwise, I really like the mood of the image, and I'd actually encourage you to do something unique with the cardboard cut-out look this has going for it.

Ah! Thank you very much!That's an incredibly refreshing, serious critique, excellent, thank you sooo much.
I believe I had originally planned to have her smoking and the smoke whisping out across the piece, but it slipped my mind as the night wore on.I understand what you mean about the perspective, I will have to try this again with more depth added, but I will most certainly continue to experiment with the cut-out style.
Thank you again~
