Re: Downtown Des Moines

Oh Gosh, that is amazing. . . just beautiful pen work. And so large, too. That must have taken you a TON of hours to complete? Bravo. . . well done!

Re: Downtown Des Moines

Thank you for your very kind comments! Rainy, I'm not sure how long it took. I don't really keep track. It did take around 30 some drops of ink! Maybe a little less.

Re: Downtown Des Moines

Exceptional work. Looks just like I remembered Downtown DM. I was wondering if anyone ever posts a "detail" shot of their works? I would love to see a section of this up close?
I'm new here........perhaps it's not possible?

WOW! It really does look like a black and white picture, complete with the old looking car at the foreground! Love the detail! Incredable! I love your style!

Re: Downtown Des Moines

What a great job you have done. I would certainly say it looks finished but you are the artist.
