As promised

All these should show as just a tiny bit smaller than actual size which is A5.
First up is the view from the kitchen window, well, not really the view from the window, more a view of the window.... anyway, this is the first sketch I did in the book and in many ways I think it's the best so far.

but that doesn't mean the others totally suck. Next up is an unflattering picture of my wife. I'm not particularly good at likenesses, especially if I have to do them quickly with no planning. That's why it doesn't look like Bec, or much like a woman for that matter. Other than the face I'm quite pleased with it though.

Finally we have our TV, there was something showing on it at the time but I can't draw fast enough to capture that. I think the atempts at shading spoil it (and the other pictures where I shade) but I still sometimes do it. Silly really.

That's it for now, there are more in my book but that's for later.

nice. i'm no expert on this stuff, but the way you capture the little details (dare i say clutter?) is particularly pleasing. especially the wires under the tv.

Cheers. Not sure I captured the clutter (lets call it what it is!) though, can you tell that it's stacks of video's under the TV next to the wires? Early days yet though, and it's not like I'm taking picture perfect photos here, that's your job.

I like the last one. Yep.

And you're right - Bec is much prettier!

I know she is, I'm sorry! I did do an even worse one than that, but last night I tried again and it was a bit better. Need more practice.
