Im just gonna keep commenting on things.. Whoah dude. The overall atmosphere to it is just so intense. Its lovely and peaceful. You can almost hear the wind in the leaves and maybe a bird or two chirping. Its so lifelike and just wonderful. The shading is beautiful and the way you drew the scenery...stunning.
I'm going to start with just saying how absolutely fabulous those trees are. So many people work trees into a frenzy of detail or just leave them as unstructured blobs, but you've drawn the perfect combination of simple and texture. The shading is fantastic, it makes me feel like I could reach out and touch them. The sweet, calm, and almost sad atmosphere that is created by the soft lighting is beautiful. It takes dedication and a trained eye to understand where shadows fall and where light reflects, and both are qualities you seem to have. The only thing I would point out is that the shadow that the boy casts onto the dog's fur could be a little darker. Your art has grown tremendously in the short time I've watched you. It's a pleasure to see such a great artist grow, and I hope you keep working for as long as it makes you happy.
aaa thank you! and thank you for the critique even if it was a little thing! I have been trying to get better with my shading and doing different things with it so I'm pretty glad about the direction it's going in!
Mrmph, I enjoy looking and finding little details, even though my own art is pretty basic. You're shading is looking fantastic, and I can't wait to see how it will improve even more. You're always welcome.
Also, as a small side note, I must thank you for your YouTube shading tutorial. It's helped open my eyes and lead me to try more interesting ways of shading.
