I'm working really hard to improve my art work, focusing a lot on putting my subjects in a space with some depth, and atmosphere. I spent about 40 minutes doing this sketch, and it's the first woods scene of my life that actually achieved that.
Drawing from life or photos of scenes has helped a lot. Especially when it comes to the texture of plants, though I know I've got a long way to go. For this one, I used the value almost exclusively. The limited light source really helps you push things into the background.
