    The portrait almost looks like it's made out of string

    Make a sketchbook happy, feed it a tip to improve!

    Lovely progress on the Caravaggio study.

    And fun self-portrait. Why the colors and the sketchy lines? They give it almost a cloth-like texture.

    orochigenocide - I like scribbling, it sort of suits me.

    ashess - I have no idea. I'm a full time working mum and fit in art when I can.

    Resurrecting another one of my old projects that needs to be finished by the end of this month. I'm simplifying the animation a lot, but in the meantime a vector background.

    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    The only issue I have is the upper part of the windows
    The brick angled up is throwing me off.

    Besides that looks nice

    That's just the fancy Victorian brickwork for you. It's decorative as opposed to being functional.

    Thats lovely. Ive always like those black bricks, and the elegant georgian (?) proportions of Downing Street.
    Downing himself was an interesting fellow too, as is the story of the 60s renovation (and presumably installation of a nuclear bunker)

    Yeah, it's probably Georgian. They sort of blend with early Victorian - my British history is sort of vague here and there as I lived abroad most of my childhood.

    That master study on the previous page really got refined since the last time i saw it. The last one i saw almost looked like it couldn't be pushed anymore by my standards, but i guess i was wrong, you were able to push it further

    Yeah, the only reason it was throwing me off was it seemed to have added depth to it for me at first. Doesn't bother much now though looking back at it.

    Vector background, that's something new in this SB (or my memory isn't great which is totally true). Looks cool. I don't know, maybe the windows could use some shadows at least, they are oh so totally white but it's just a feeling.

    I like the vector a lot. I used to try them a couple of years ago, never got into the technical side of it.
    Some of the white lines on the door don't match up, thus it looks a bit tilted to the right.

    You resurrected that last project in a true
    magnificent light of victory. We never expected
    anything less. Your grappling abilities just hit
    the second level. Cheers for this Mrs. Spot.

    Lovely portrait! I've never done anything in vector before, but looks interesting. Did you finish your Caravaggio study? Would love to see it.

    Hey
    I'd like to thank you for visiting my sketchbook and giving me feedback about my work. Waiting for an update on your works! (I don't know what useful thing to say about the gate an the brick building other than it being very fancy indeed)
    Cheerio!

    yochanan - I'm still working on it, but I have other priorities. I work in spurts and go back and finish old things at times.

    Another vector picture, but unfinished as yet. Hope to complete it tomorrow.

    Usually vectors (for me) give the vibe of working a lot faster due to working with simpler shapes. Yours are looking great, and detailed, and like they take a lot of patience.

    They look so interesting and cool.

    Some take longer than others. I would have finished today except the program crashed twice (lost a fair bit the first time) and my kids tidied up their rooms and left me a ton of laundry. There are some shadows I have to correct, which is the beauty of vector drawing - so easy for corrections.

    Basically finished. Might do a few tweaks later, but I'm fairly happy with it.

    you should be proud with what you've done in the last post because the vector drawing
    require more time and calculations to get the right method.

    I like it .

    keep it up my friend.

    Your illustration skills are just so good,
    I could wish I had an ice cream cake with fresh melon
    pieces on top on my last birthday, but my parents disappointed me there.
    You are becoming stronger each time I visit here, and
    I can say that I think a lot about your art lately.
    Even when I am heavily tired.
