    [WIP] Golden Hour Before Twilight

    Hello.

    Recently, I've been working on this drawing. (about 2 weeks so far, on-and-off because of my schedule)
    I wanted to do a bit more work before showing what it looks like as a work-in-progress (WIP), but I'm also working on a project -- the Pirate101 Powers Randomizer, which randomizes the Powers (and number of copies) you may use in battle. (It randomizes per fight)
    (I might make a post about the randomizer soon.)

    (This drawing probably won't be done for another two weeks, at least, considering my current rate of progress.)

    Here's the drawing as it currently is:

    It is finally done!

    Due to certain circumstances, my lighting setup has changed, so some shading may appear off as a result.
    (I actually kind of like the lighting effect this has at the moment, actually....)
    I didn't know what I wanted to do towards the end (in that case, I had buildings, the girl's hair, and a few other things left to do), so I just eventually thought of some (random) things and incorporated them into the sketch.

    Notes:
    I don't think I can illustrate sky/weather-related contents (clouds, rain, etc.) very well, so I think I'll be making some effort to improve on that in the future (before I work on another sketch project).
    ー The billboard contents are an inspiration from one of the artists I follow (their name will not be mentioned because of P101C policy).

    Amazing. Love how you have shaded each brick with so much care and attention to detail. Same goes for the trees. Its looking very good so far, can not wait to see your finished product!

    Only minor thing I would nitpick on is the fence rail the girl lays on perfectly blocks a layer of breaks on the building. In terms of vision of depth, the rail has slightly more height than bricks, so the first layer of bricks above the rail should have slightly less height since its base is blocked by the fence. This is such a minor detail but I have very slight OCD at times and want to be a perfectionist so you can ignore this since its a very small. Maybe add another rail too so she doesnt fall off haha.

    Nonetheless, keen to see the final version!

    Thanks for the feedback!
    Although it doesn't display as well here (if at all) as part of a forum post, there's a gap in the first layer of bricks above the railing and the railing itself, the same kind of gap that the bricks blocked by the railing would have with those bricks above the railing.
    This will be much more obvious when I do shade in the railing, but for now, it'll probably stay that way. Sorry about that.

    (FYI: I probably won't end up doing the railing until close to the end, since I plan to tackle the harder parts of the drawing first.)
