Unsure about title but want it to be something that goes with that feeling of being watched and judged. This is part of a local church top.

Artist inks and dip pen
6 hours total work time
8x12 for now unless I expand the drawing some
Alot of detail work to go with all the bricks and the birds.

How is it so far while I can make adjustments?
What feelings is it conveying?
Feel free to say anything I can take it!

Erica, you need to adjust the perspective a little

I'm in the US, too, and I think the lines are totally (sadly) appropriate. Justice here? There is no justice, only law...
But yes, perhaps, the perspective does need adjusted. And I do like the title. Nice concept.

I agree perspective is off and the photo is tiny bit crooked and it's a phone photo so it's not as off as it is in the picture.

My reference photo was a weird angle though is part of the issue. I was driving down the road on a rainy day and looked up and saw them on the church so I opened the sunroof to get a quick shot as the light turned green.

My hope is by making the bricks detailed and crumbly I can pull the eye into not noticing? I hate to scrap it because it's turning out really nice except for the perspective issues. I will try to get a real photo tomorrow that's at a proper angle so you can help advise what lines to move or crumble.

Thanks bunches!

The vignetting on the tower may be because of the distortion on the lens of the camera.
The idea is good , i think some crumbling stones and some ivy or moss could hide /build up the surfaces abit.
How about "waiting for a target " :)

Ah it is a Church, the name takes on quite a different perspective, the unelected passing judgement.....based on mythology.
