My apologies if I sound mean here, but I would want to bring some constructive criticism. I may not be in the architecture line, but I could see flaws that need rectifying in your drawing.

Your farm shack is the major bugbear here. One side of the roof is longer than the other, which I doubt is supposed to be the case considering your doghouse. Angle of the attic (small part on top of the main roof) also looks wrong, especially when seen together with the main roof; it looks slanted, unless you really intended for it to look this way. The ramp also lacks three-dimensionality. It is supposed to look like a cuboid, but here it looks flat. The ramp also should stop at the farm shack's door, not all the way into the farmhouse. The window panes, like the ramp, also looks flat, being drawn as rectangles rather than cuboids. 

For the apartment building, you may want to be careful about how the rows of windows are arranged, as some of them seem to be misaligned. Can't say much about the doghouse, but it should ideally be drawn in full profile.

All in all, keep practising. But in doing so, studying from actual buildings or have reference pictures of buildings with you when you are working on your drawings. (best if the reference pictures were taken by you). Alternatively, if you have 3D software like Maya or Blender, you can create 3D models of buildings and refer to these models. This way, you can do a check on where you did wrong in your drawings of buildings.

Ty for the advice and dont worry lol... :D Tho the ref photo i used for the house did have a asymmetrical roof but I'm making the mistake of blindly following the ref too blindly HA

Also, I really need to focus better whilst drawing... Tbh that time I was a bit sick and frigging distracted by me blasting music XD But yeah, still need to draw buildings until I stop hating to draw buildings ahahaha

By the way...

how's work?

A hard lesson learnt here. Sometimes, you can't slavishly copy the reference photo wholesale. :sweatdrop: revamp v2 You have to change certain things left and right in such situations. On music, it can be a double-edged sword. It can help you concentrate better or detract you away from your work. When you're sick, you may have to slow down your pace, but at that time, maybe you blasted the wrong genre of music that you got way too distracted?

As for work since the end of my contract in late March, it can be pretty hectic, especially when high traffic is expected at the restaurant I am working at. Sometimes at the end of the shift or day, I get too exhausted to draw and would rather sleep instead. Better be mindful of my frequency of working there as I have gotten burnout before!
