It’s actually other trees, there is barely any sky visible through the leaves, the parts where is a little bit visible is behind the cat and at the top left part. But I should have definitely separated it better. The overall values turned out bleh. The pencil is not my kind of medium for rendering so I’m trying to put in more effort now ;0.
With the tree and cat I’ll be honest I wasn’t sure which one I wanted to be the main subject. The idea is from left to right you go with darker wood to the cat which has natural lighter background surrounding her towards behind her head and the head itself is staring to the right which i was hoping would shift the focus towards the tree and that’s why I gave it much more rendering. Bu I think when I put the dark foreground branches over it that it killed the focus there and made the whole right side too dark.
I’m pretty new to making environments especially with pencil unless it’s city scenes so I was literally learning on the go.
Out of everything the background was the strangest for me as I’m not really sure how to make the picture rich on leafs without overcrowding it, I tried to go one by one but that quickly turned into a big mess so I tried to just suggest them with lighter dips here and there and grouping them and the just some shade behind it but yeah that’s definitely very weak part right now.
Thanks a lot to you too!
