Size: 5x15 cm (2x6 inch).
Drawn with a 0.5 mm black fineliner on white paper.
I hope you like it.
Rows and rows of books…this looks like my idea of heaven! You achieved such a great effect using just a black pen.
Every nook and cranny filled. Love it!
So much detail! Very, very cool!
So much detail!!! It looks like my bookshelves- packed with goodies!
Your drawing has captured the mystery of an unfamiliar, packed book shelf! I’ve recently been reading a Edward Gorey biography and this reminds me of his work.
I can totally see the Gorey-ness in this piece! I think it’s the cross-hatching. It’s really wonderful.
Wow, this is wonderful! Perfect for a bookmark.
I agree! And the sheer density of the lines.
Thanks for the compliments, everyone!
At first I wasn’t so happy with my drawing, since the fineliner I used was a bit too thick for this size of drawing. I couldn’t draw neat details.
But obviously this style works too. No need to always be a perfectionist…
I had to Google Edward Gorey, and feel honored to have my drawing compared to his work!
This is gorgeous, you could copy it onto thick paper and put them into the books in your little free library
That’s just what I planned to do. Great minds…
Unfortunately our printer refuses to do thick paper any longer. Might be time for a new one.
Yes, I think the thicker lines work perfectly for this drawing. On one hand it’s very detailed but it’s not too detailed - if your lines were thinner, you would have added even more details and it may have been too much. It looks like a “simple” enough drawing, almost the type of thing you’d draw while in a meeting, but at the same time it’s all very well thought out so it’s clearly not a doodle. It just looks effortless, but I know it takes a lot of skill to make something look easy!
Thank you, @Immaculata !
This is fantastic and so realistic.
This project is hot, hot, hot! And one of this week’s featured projects! Congrats!
I love it. It is so perfect.
And thank you for the feature!
The detail is phenomenal! What an adorable little bookmark!
What a fabulous variety of books- it makes me want to reach into the drawing and pluck one off of the shelves! Such detail in such a small space, yet not overwhelming- nicely done!
