This is for a project for school where we had to draw a western Canadian environment with the foreground in shadow and a light background. I'm pretty sure we're supposed to include a narrative aspect as well (ie: people doing something in the environment). The narrative I had running here is some farmer dude was out tractoring but his tire popped, and during a smoke break while repairing it, he sees a ufo and is getting his cell phone camera ready. It took me about 3 hours, and I had a lot of fun doing it. It's rushed and sketchy, but I've spent a lot of time looking at the art of Sam Neilson*. His rendering and colors blow me away, and I'm working on putting more and more effort into my rendering. He's doing what I want to do, art wise.
I think I'm going to go in and add to it later and make the lighting correct
