St. Basil's Cathedral etch a sketch by pikajane St. Basil's Cathedral etch a sketch by pikajane
I was given permission by :iconagiantsquid: to etch their wonderful photograph:

St Basil's by aGiantSquid

This piece was well over a year in the making and I am thrilled with how it turned out! Countless hours were poured into this. The hardest part was those swirly spires!

Like many other Americans, I was introduced to this architectural masterpiece by playing Tetris.

Wow, it must have been incredibly frustrating to make. I can't even draw a stickman on those.
Wonderful work, so many details... I can't believe it!

how do you not accidentally shake it and erase it all!  That what was difficult for me with echasketchs because you'd make a pic you'd like and one little bump and it could disappear!!!  Cudos for mastering such an awesome art syle!!!

Thank you! I have been very careful with this piece, only working on it while it was sitting on a desk. I drained it of its powder afterwards. Now I usually drain my etch a sketches before I start a piece so I won't have to worry about it erasing before I finish it :)
