I started this drawing simply to improve some aspects of my style, specifically the way I shade trees, rocks, and grass. Overall, I think I accomplished that. 

One criticism that I've recieved several times is that the leaves and grass in my drawings look to similar and are hard to differentiate from each other. In this drawing, I tried to make the leaf clusters more rounded while making the grass clusters more pointed. The textures still look a bit too similar in my opinion, but I think that I at least made some decent progress on differentiating them in this drawing.

Thanks! I thought that the rockets would add a bit of interest

Looks good to me. I spy a rocket.

I definitely agree; in an attempt to better some parts of my style I guess I didn't pay much attentiont to the image as a whole which I think led to the clouds being less detailed than they should be. Thank you for pointing it out to me

the problem is that the focus point of the image is where there are the less details. with a little more time spent on the clouds you could have got something really good.

Nice scene.

Thank you, and I'm glad to hear that you think the textures are good the way they are. Also, I agree that slightly larger leaves would probably look better. Looking at the image now the leaves, at least on the closer tree, do seem just a bit smaller than they should probably be at that distance.

love the colors and the contrast and harmony between all the materials, really pleasing to the eye. those little purple flowers bring me joy<3 i personally like the roundedness on both grass and trees, the pointy round grass looks nice. I get the critique though, i'd maybe go with just teeny tiny bit bigger leaves or/and tiny bit smaller grass to differeniate them a bit more?
