Well this is the full form, I have it custom framed and it's in my parents home in Oregon. I am very passionate in art, and details are my specialty. I work with love and I am proud of my hard effort. The details are so tiny, It's better in person.

Siena Cathedral by *chibigundam is, in a word, impressive. Although it brings other words to mind: overwhelming, rich, detailed, precise, elaborate and ornate. ( Featured by oedalis )

Thank you! It's been challenging at this moment to create large pieces like this because of my full time job as a women's shoes merchandiser. I'm completely drained and unmotivated when I get home but I do my best to make time to draw a little. Been doing small work here and there but I am determined to draw like this again.

Well I think you should congratulate yourself as hard work, though boring and tedious at times, does pay off. Your work reminds me of that of the person on here who drew the photo realistic clockface of Big Ben (St Stephen's Tower really). It all pays off with learned technique and patience :)

Without reading your text, I was thinking: is this a photo, is this a drawing,....wait a min...is this a model or full scale??? Then I read the text, GREAT JOB!!!! If your goal is realism I would suggest rethinking the angle though. If you were to size at this Cathedral, is it likely you would be 25 feet in the air? Also, the backdrop, I wouldn't change it, unless it was more realistic, works great the way you took the picture.

I plan on drawing the look alike Siena "Orvieto Cathedral" using the same medium and paper I used last time on Siena. But life is so much different now when I'm working full time. :p
