The detail in this is amazing!! You should be a professional. Did you use only a blue biro? How did you plan the White parts?

I love how you even did the minute textures on the surface of the thumbtacks =) I tried my hand in biro and I can really appreciate your fine control of the shadings because its just so easy to draw in too much and end up with a uniform surface. Brilliant drawing!=)

Wow thank you! I wouldn't really call it that tho haha. umm omg. Well I started it a very long time ago... maybe the beginning of this year but then i start university so I had to lay it off for a few months and I just came back to it maybe like 2 weeks ago and have been working on and off because it really tested my patience! soo to answer your question (sorry to go on a tangent) I would say 50 hours? and countless days!
