Mountain range sketch by Daandric Mountain range sketch by Daandric
Technically...this isn't a sketch. It took me about 3 hours to draw this. But by idea, it is a sketch since I had no proper plan for this and also that is the reason why some areas remain blank.

A5; 2B mech pen; about 3 hours.

I lik it. You  can always claim that the blank spaces are snow. I am quite jealous as well. My mountains never look like mountains but yours looks amazing.

Good. Also take notice in formation of the rocks themselves. Not every mountain is the same so be careful at that.

the depth in this piece is amazing, as well as the detail. Full view was a temptation I couldn't resist. I quite love how loose and free this sketch feels, but it still looks and is conveyed as a place of beauty. :heart:

I like the top left part most. It shows most depth.

Looks breathtakingly good! Towards the middle left the mountain range almost looks like an evil face.

how do you draw a scenery from a higher level....like the scenery on top of a skyscraper for example..?

First you must know what a (following the example) skyscraper look like on the top; see what objects are on the roof. Then you apply perspective knowledge>

You just draw harder on the stuff that is on front so the back end looks faded XD

Thanks. I'm still trying to figure it out. This is a sketch/trial version of something I'm trying to force out of my head and on paper.
