a drawing 21 x 30 cm, old tree in a half-dead forest. That forest was burnt long ago. I made a sketch of this tree and returned home, where worked one day per several months. So I finished it after two years only.
Wicked. I think that a harsher contrast would have brought out the "half-dead" aspect better, but it's still remarkably detailed. The tan orange background is interesting as well since it makes me think of how orange sunlight looks when there have been large fires.
Your work really paid off. The detail in this piece is amazing, especially the high level of detail! There's so much depth in it, with how precisely you defined the bark. And the shading is just right, too.
