Here's a more architectural-centric piece. Partially inspired by the Colosseum. Pen and ink, took me about 48 hours straight with a couple short breaks, yay for deadlines! (lol)

I've yet to color this, but I will someday. If any of you want do want to tackle this challenge, feel free to do so! Just drop me a message. :)

Somewhat faux-perspective + one-point.

Great work!

Did you use a 3d underlay for this? The architecture in the foreground is great, but as it gets farther back, seems like you lost interest, or the style changes from gothic/medival to just random arches and windows. The line weight on this is also a very nice touch. You used it in such a way to push depth in a drawing without using value It's a simple concept, but most people really struggle with it.


sakerfalcon responds:

The whole piece was unplanned to begin with - I started from the foreground and then worked towards the back, to the random arches and windows (which were a bit random, I have to admit). No references were used. I stopped midway with the one-point perspective and decided to try another method to "end" the background, because I didn't want to repeat another submission with the same style/layout (I will upload that soon) as this piece.

Thanks for pointing out a flaw though, I appreciate it! Maybe I could change that with the coloring.

Great

I think the fact that its uncolored but with the brown pencil feel gives it a very powerful antique feel that's so harmonious (bad spelling... not sure if its even a word) with the architecture. Also, reminds me of that building from the civilization series... the one that gets progressively modern as you go up.

Wow

This is extremely detailed nice work! :D
You should make another version with shadowing.
