Council Rock with detail

By rschuch
5 x 7 two layer cut paper. Just thought I'd ask for some opinions - which do you like better; with or without the white charcoal pencil? Any comments greatly appreciated.

I featured this in my journal, I hope you like it! [link]

I think I like this one a little better because there are some details in this one that you can't see in the other one, like the fox on the foreground and the plants. And I really like the way you do backgrounds, it's looks so much better than just a plain white one :D

Thank you, and yeah, I see what you mean, especially the wolf up front. All you see is the tip of his ear in the plain version! It's like he's hiding in the shadows ... it could have been anyone ... Shere Khan could've been back there!

I like the charcoal, actually :D
Isn't Council Rock from the Jungle Book?

Yes. I wrote a brief explanation on the other one I did without the charcoal (:thumb196701074:) and didn't want to repeat myself.

Glad to find another Kipling fan! Now I just need to do the Just So Stories, Kim and Puck!

Oh yeah, I didn't see that other one, (that one wasn't in my inbox.) And yes, I am a fan of Kipling's :) Did you know he was not only a writer, but a songwriter too?

I had no idea. "Smoke on the Water"?

Yeah, they were like lyrics to hymns and stuff though. I don't think his songs are nearly as famous as his writing
