Right, I told you I thought it needed a background. And someone pointed out a very good criticism that the little boy's arm was too fat, so I tried to smooth that down. So, now you have one of the very few finished drawings I've ever produced (well, as finished as it's likely to get, anyway, unless I feel like adding the trashcan next to the bench or filling in some trees in the background like I would if I weren't a lazy bum).

That's my Verbena mage, for those of you who play WoD. If you don't, then he's just a mage, helping a little boy with his basketball bruises.

Still want to do a colored version.

What I learned: Best tree I ever did. I'm starting to get the hang of wood. And...look, what's that? Could it be...*perspective?* If only in a rough sense of the word. Er. But now the shadows make no sense. *sigh* I just can't win. Ah, well, you live, you learn.

Oh, you´re right...that´s a good tree, it looks organic, like it has grown this way, - it´s hard to draw trees. Mine still look like drawn by a 12-year old *g. I like the expression on your Verbena´s face.
But won´t that result in Paradox? ;-)

Mebbe. But drawing coincidental magic isn't nearly as much fun. :D

Thanks for the compliment on the tree! I've spent hours wandering around the campus here and sketching various trees, and most of the time I still can't get 'em to look right.

Nice shadows... :p

Yes, aren't they amazing? It's as if they have a life of their own...

Personally, I blame the Lasombra...

You know, you're probably right...
