Just like in a cruel love story, the tree and the moon are destined to pass by each other every day with no hope of ever meeting. Like the girl you fall hopelessly in love with as you catch a fleeting glance of her hair. She walks away, never to return. The memory remains, but with a deeper sense of mystery; and dreams of what could have been, if only a chance was given.
Sorry about that, just had to get it out... and moving on.
OK, so here it is... There is nothing more I want to do with it. And I'm happy about it. Materials used & time spent:
Done with 3mm hb and b mechanical pencil, 4b graphite pencil, a small amount of charcoal and tortillons for blending.
All together it took me roughly 10 hours. Progress images: Reference (my own photo):

Edit (10-28-11): I have added some contrast and detail to the mountains and foreground, and left the natural color for a more neutral tone. Nothing major, but I guess it puts my completion time closer to 13 hours.Follow me on:
