Gotta muster up some courage to tackle this one, Nolan.  My, lots of details.

Bet there are a lot of skills to be learned in this one.


Hmmm...better start sharpening my pencils.

 :heeha: You did a fantastic job on this one Patricia, tackling the small details like  the signs dotted here and there and even some in the windows must have needed patience.  Well done  :yippee:

 :thankyou: :thankyou:  Win for your lovely comments and yes, this was a tough assignment but as I said, very enjoyable. It took me a couple of nights to finish it as it had me so engrossed. I found it very hard to put down and was working until 10.30 in the night which is way past my normal bedtime but I lose track of time when I am doing something I enjoy. Would love to see others do this one too. Your pencil work is outstanding so give this one a go Win.

This is excellent Patricia!  :heeha:   When I first looked at this I thought it was really good, then realized my brightness control was turned down too far. Once I brightened it up.... WOW!!! The contrasts and light literally jumped off the page! Brilliant job.  O0     :congrats:
