Spent at least 2 weeks working on this. I know I should've done something wrong here, so criticism is definitely appreciated.

Based off of a location in Danganronpa V3. I definitely had to cut corners though.
Also the color palette (how do I upload the image straight here anyway?)


5/21/2018: I wonder if the title has something to do with why I messed up. I mean if so, it's just the title of a track that plays in the same product, I'm not actually praising my own work, guys. ;-;
6/4/2018: Yeah, renamed it from 'Beautiful Lie' to 'V3 Academy'. Welp, it's too late, but hey.

@cpatten Ah, thanks, I'm glad you liked it!

@Pix.Ed. Ah, I see. Thank you for letting me know, I should probably do a tree study sometime.

You can defintiely tell the time and effort that you out into this. It really paid off! Lovely work!

That specific trunk is the most natural one, but you could probably still add a little volume somewhere so it doesnt read so straight.

Thank you, Lucas!

Hey Pix.Ed., thank you for the criticism! I agree with the lack of contrast in the color palette--when I was in the middle of drawing this, it was a bit difficult to make things readable with the palette I've been using. As for the tree trunks, I felt the same way. I should probably study those a little?
Oh, and just to be safe, is this specific trunk included in your critique?
Again, thank you for the criticism, I appreciate it greatly!

beautiful work :)

Hey, nice work, very detailed. The color palette is a bit muted, more saturation and contrast between the colors would help readability and you probably wouldnt have to use the darker colors to outline shapes so much, which could help give a better sense of volume.

I like the trees' foliage a lot but not so crazy about the trunks. The leaning trunks dont have a natural angle and the straight ones are too angular.

But really good job, ther are far more things to like than to criticize, for sure.
