Random landscape time!
This is a much quicker piece than my last two. I've been getting frustrated with some of the line art on one of the pictures I'm working on, so I thought I'd make a quick sketch, and play around with brushes and unwind a little.
I liked how the sketch looked, so I put a some more time into it, to polish it up a little. :)

A few people have been asking me about the brushes I've been using. The brushes I used in this picture for the pine trees in the background, and the tree leaves are from this pack: [link]

It was quite a fun exercise. Comments and criticism are always welcome. :D

Hi, I was wondering if we might use this piece in a project we're working on. See, the idea we want to get across is someone going on a journey with an unknown destination, and this piece really conveys that. If you let us use this, we will of course give you full credit for the image. Please respond as soon as you can.

Sure!
I'm honored that you asked. :)

I apologize for the delay in this response, too. Hopefully, I made it in time for you.
Good luck on the project, too!

It's an honor to hear that you enjoyed this piece.

I have fun thinking of scenes like this, and I often enjoy them in the novels I read, but I'm not much of a writer myself.

Thank you. I'm glad you enjoy it. :)

I looked up a few reference pictures of forests to try and proportion the trees, and get the relative brightness of different objects correct. Using a few references was quite helpful, and I think they might be a good way that I can improve my landscapes and backgrounds in the future.
