I started drawing this picture over a year ago. It remained unfinished until last night when I randomly came across it during some cleaning. Deciding to finally finish it, I completed sketching all those stupid little rocks, then scanned and colored it.
Although, while I was coloring it in photoshop, my computer decided to stop working for a moment and I lost nearly 5 hours of work. *Cries* I managed to save a .jpg version of what I had done but the PSD file was gone. >.> So what you see here is a re sized version of that .jpg file. I retouched a few spots but even so, there are a few things that bug me... so please no critique again. I cried over this enough last night.
Drawn completely in regular pencil (on 8.5x11 computer paper) then scanned and darkened. I then added in some color with photoshop under the pencil. Some effects were also added above the pencil.

I also have a step by step tutorial showing how to color under pencil like this. --> [link]No Critique desired.
