Drawing of a five pound note

Phew! It’s done. I don’t know if I’ll ever (willingly) attempt to draw a bank-note again (unless it’s a not very detailed bank-note, or I want to punish myself) but since yesterday I’m glad to have this drawing finished.

It’s probably one of my drawings that’s taken the longest time to finish and as usual I can see a few areas that I’d do differently if I repeated it, or where I made mistakes (like the wonky metallic thread and the fact that the wiggly pattern on the left hand side isn’t supposed to continue right to the edge of the note) but overall I’m kind of pleased with it.

I certainly know a lot about the details on a five pound note now, and itt was definitely a challenge which is a good thing.
