Everything loses its colors in the Garden of Gray.

First piece mostly drawn with a tablet. Don't know how to draw with a mouse anymore ): Various jungle references used.

Inspiration song

Wonderfull picture, although i just can't tell if flowers are growing on a rock or a dead tree.

Also your avatar is fantastic and funny!

I like it a lot - but in some spots the shading seems to be abit smudgy - most noticable at the edges of the stones, where they connect with the grey of the garden. I think some more harsh contrasts there (only the real edge of them= would give it more clarity.

but that is a minor nitpick - it's beautiful as is :3

 been looking at the public queu for the past five minutes, saw this on the main page and was looking rather desperately for the "yes" button :V

Very nice piece!  I am reminded of Titan's Goblet: http://www.paintinghere.com/UploadPic/Thomas%20Cole/big/The%20Titans%20Goblet.jpg, which is one of my favorites.

Totally understand how you can't draw with the mouse anymore.  Lovely piece, love the greens and the smoothness of it.

Lovely. The bark texture looks more like a stone, but it's forgivable :)

 I was wondering if there was a connection to the song when I saw the title. In any case, an absolutely fantastic piece. I love the fade into the horizon, and the way the gray contrasts with the foliage around it.  i remember being inspired by the title quite a while back to try and do something like this, but I never got around to it. I'm glad you did.

 Thank you, guys! 

@jalonso - actually, that IS a 5th vine (: I hope it reads better now. Thanks


user
jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 6/25/2011 07:12

A wonderful piece. You rock.

My only nitpick is the four vines on the tree trunk. Items in even numbers in nature always read unnatural to me. I see the 5th in the rear of the tree but it looks more like an error in pixelling than a vine. Perhaps adding the 5th vine lower on the trunk's front in the shade?

@skamocore - thanks for your point. I made some minor tweaks with a furthermost hills

Oh my freakin god, I love you.

I think if you're going to use dithering in the background, then you should consider using more of it; right now it feels a bit ineffectual and messy.

Also, I would try more contrast between 3d3d3d and 1d3e29.

Overall though, this is <3
