Cabin Fever

Here's another commission I did. Here's the real life pic....

I thought this would be the easiest thing in the world for me to draw right? A rustic cabin that already has charm and character? It turned out fine but I had problems with all of the horizontal lines. A lot of info in such a small space you know. This is 2½" x 3½" on illustration board.

One thing I'm working on now is trying to get all of the window panes represented in the drawing. It's hard to do in such a small space but I'm toying with the idea of using the impressed line technique. I've tried to scratch the grid of the windows into the board and when I go over it with graphite the scratched part remains white. I think it will work ... just need the right scratching tool.

Thanks for looking!!

OOoooo here is the cabin! cool! Yeah, the impressed lines should work well for you here. Try a small stylus Tim?
