Nicely done!


I like the way this drawing has been arranged: closely packed houses toward the foreground with the top-left to bottom-right axis, in contrast to the open fields toward the background.  The section of the thick wall running parallel to the axis of the residential area further help to provide direction and gives the impression that the one who is viewing this scene is having a panoramic view. :+fav: :)


The small rectangles used for the roofs and the walls of the houses help to provide the textures.  The stippling for the wall on the foreground helps out as well.

I hate to be a copycat but my first thought was Whoa!! How in the world did you get all the different shades with ink??

 I use a couple of methods like stipling,hatching and cross hatching,that gives you different textures,also I use a few different sizes of pens :)

It reminds me of Blackburn, with Darwen Tower in the background!

Don't know that one but yeah there are lots of these towers all over the north of England.This drawing I did was sort of loosely based on Hebden Bridge with Stoodley Pike in the distance.Thanks for commenting,have a nice day.:):)

You must have put quite a lot of effort into this one. oO
And I really like how you set the perspective. It looks 3D and flat at the same time which is a very cool thing.
Love it. :>

Omg that's very awesome, great line work, and the stippling through the fields is amazing! Must have been some major hand cramping there xD
