Time for some new work. This is a fairly recent drawing that I did. The foreground is actually based on a photo which I took in the beautiful town of Quedlinburg, where you have tons of old buildings like that. But from the mid-ground on I made it up to create a more interesting composition.
The piece was done with ink pens and markers, and then toned digitally.
Hope you guys enjoy, critiques are welcome as usual!

Wow, new work! It's been a while.

I have to tell you, I like your traditional medium artwork almost more than I like your digital art, and that's saying something because I really like everything you've done so far. You have a great talent for shading and textures, which make this image work. There's a chance that if you hadn't done the shadow from the house on the left well, it would have looked a little awkward, but the shading is done perfectly.

The gate in the background is very well done, especially the addition of the half-lowered metal grate. I also particularly like the way that the buildings at the edge aren't quite finished, which just adds to the aesthetic of the piece.

On the whole, there's nothing I can think of that I'd like to see changed here. This is just altogether a wonderful drawing. Well done!
What do you think?

Well, :D As I wrote in the description, the forground is based on a photo which I took in Quedlinburg, a beautiful medieval German town...from miground onwards it is made up, but obviously in a way that fits the style of architecture :D
