Sitting in the upstairs of the foodcourt down the road from work, it was moody grey skies outside, and perfect for a rough sketch for this month's winter-based theme. Picture is useless, since it's taken from my cellphone camera, contrast adjusted in Paintshop, but you get the idea.
This isn't the rough sketch, this is the A4 iteration that I managed to work up last night while watching Two Towers EE. I now need to rough up and transfer the shop frontages that should be beyond the railings, and then add some rain to complete the mood ;)
Then I'll probably do another A4 iteration before hopefully scaling up again, though to be honest there's not really enough detail to warrant an A3 interpretation. We'll see.

I'm in awe of the chair and rail post. :D They're both amazing!

:D I'm glad - those chairs took quite a lot of concentration to get them looking right!
Ironically, the rail was extremely simple, but it's come out all the better for it.

I'm definitely going to scan the final version of this, and hope that it picks up the shading a lot better than my camera has :P

Thanks for the :+fav:s too! :glomp:

My camera usually picks things up, but I have to try out different iso setting before the stupid thing behaves, though. Fire's better with the photos than I am, too.

You're welcome for the fav! :boogie:
