    I've bean using art rage for years, and I've never made a tree even close to as good as yours! You inspired me to try harder though! I also taught myself art rage without ever taking a class or anything, so as a peer, I say great job!

    You followed D Akey's great suggestions very well!

    Something I saw somewhere about portraying depth—ah, it's from Alphonso Dunn, who specializes in pen, ink, and watercolor, but has great tips. 6 Ways to Create Depth in Your Drawings

    Basically, there are six different visual cues (and more, but these are the six in the video and that I've seen discussed elsewhere): overlap, size (smaller is further away), position (lower reads as closer, higher reads as farther), reducing detail as objects recede, reducing contrast as objects recede, and (if the scene allows it) adding a horizon for visual context (which also helps with positioning to create depth).

    Very good! Keep going. You could even push the distinction between the trees through the concept of lighting. By having a shadow side and a light side. So if you wanted to add the additional element of lighting, you could emphasize form.

    If you think of a relief sculpture plaque or sign or a door or trophy or something like that, you could see by having all the light behind your head as you look at it, not casting any shadows, it flattens out. Then if you hold the light off at a 3/4 angle, you create shadows. And as you move that light around it makes for different relationships between the light and shadow. You have each tree separating from the other trees and that's great. But now it's about each tree having it's own story about volume. Keep going with what you're doing. It's good. But perhaps add a little shape to each tree within itself.

    You can perhaps think in those terms with your forested areas. You have plenty of detail or texture. But it's handled similarly, where there is nothing that stands out as more important. That's a very democratic approach, but a little bit of a hierarchy could serve the whole picture.

    The water looks nice. And you're really moving along with everything. Good jobs!
