I believe trees can grow on trees, and I can prove it.

Stayed at a lovely little villa in Lucca recently. Drew a little chunk of it, trying to be as realistic as possible with my sketch. Most of the brickwork is accurate. I love these large glass-filled arches. They let so much light in and make the place feel really special.

Something rather unexpected happened to me when I was doing an internet speed test on 28 June...

A Hussein Horack original, haha. Does anyone else here enjoy fantasy cartography?
Another little bit of cartography. But this time it took me around 50mins to complete! An unusually long time for me especially... I'm not usually this patient! I spent longer on this than I thought because I decided to include the roof tiles, some shading and other details...

What do you think? Should I change or add anything?

Another little castle village map drawn with my fountain pen :) I only just noticed how inconsistent the shading is... I really should have put a marker in so I don't get confused! Ha, well... we learn from mistakes!

Critiques welcome!! :)

Inspired by SirInkman on DeviantArt. I haven't used my pencils in a while, so I could certainly use some feedback :) Thoughts?
Oh, there's a drawing I forgot to share here on Google+! I really like this one. It turned out very well imo. I shared it on my DeviantArt profile first: http://bit.ly/2ukb3er

I really like SirInkman's work, so I tried my hand at his style. I didn't aim to make an exact replica but rather intended to learn from his style and do what I want with it. You might recognise a certain one of his works in here, and yes, that is the work I used as a reference.

Working with a pencil was a welcome change for me. I used an HB pencil and combined it with a B pencil to strengthen the lines and shadows, etc.

Here's a link to SirInkman's work (specifically the piece I used as a reference): http://sirinkman.deviantart.com/art/Gihn-Mofeht-s-house-pencil-511331101

First pencil drawing in a while! Been using my fountain pen for ages :D

What do you think about it?
