This was my first attempt at a landscape. Its full of mistakes, but im still quite proud of it.

Drawn on A4 paper with a mechanical pencil.

This picture is so good! Your shading is awwsome. Definatly better than anything I could ever hope to draw.

Jeeevuuu... trails of in astonishment........ Your first attempt at a land scape you say?...... Well this is anyting but crude, simple yes, but simplicity is a good thing! This looks like the whole of Mossflower Country between Redwall and Salamanderstron compressed into one image. Truly amazing, keep up the good work. (Sorry about the spelling)

*Drools on Self* Wow, this is really good! I sure wish I could do drawings like this! I love the details, especially in the grass (I never take the time for such little things, but maybe I should!)

Now i see this, I can see where you were coming from in the coloured version (which i saw first). I have to say, i much much prefer this one, the overhang of the ground on the left hand side is brilliant and i adore the little stream wending its way down on the right. The amount of work alone in this makes it breathtaking, that it's beautiful, peaceful, idyllic and perfectly balanced make it exquisite. Love it!

I love the little sybols yo uput on the rocks in some of your pictures!

drawing all the leaves must have been torturing. o.O' Im in awe of your patience.
This looks a bit like a raw version, because the trees, for example, have a lot of detailed stuff.. but when you look at the mountain, its very smooth and simple compared to those.
I think its a really awesome pic. But If I had the patience, I would add more detailed stuff on the mountain and the sky.. and make the grass have more ''uncut'' look.

full of mistakes? Are you kidding?
