I made a cute old little garden gnome. Hope you like it.
Made with pencils and some editing to make it look a bit better.

Yep, this guy looks like I feel... schlepping 30-40 gallons of water and running irrigation pipes :|
Very crisp work on a very nicely textured paper.
If you make a BG, have little old plants with big sized produce, just beating the odds in a bleak, dry landscape. It's funny to see a 1 1/2 foot bell pepper plant with a full sized pepper on it.... just sayin'.

An excellent job. I liked the details, especially details on his face and also in the hat, were very good. I also liked the colors. I just thought his arms were a little small, but it does not take the score.

I just thought it deserved a background for the image, but this does not affect the score. Good job, 5/5.

Dang thats awsome

You are always comming up with random stuff yet they are so awsome, i like how you think outside the box with all your work, i especially like what you got going on with this, there is just so much fine detail, fine shading and the amount of "DETAIL" is just amazing so props to you on such a great piece here, now my opinion on improvment the onlything or two i can really think of here is to add some color or something in the backround to give it more of a focus push, great stuff regardless.

~~THINGS TO IMPROVE ON~~
So some color addition to this would be nice if not that why not something in the backround like some shading or distant backdrop.


Johannek responds:

Thank you very much wayne! glad to hear from you.
Yes, i'm gonna make a colored version actually, but since some like it without color i thought i'd upload this too. i was thinking a pine-forest background. we'll see! :)
