I would totally go through that gate.

This makes me feel ashamed for even attempting to draw a gate in dark and eerie environment.

The depth, lighting, atmosphere, symmetry, and shading are so stunning I wish I could walk around inside this painting.

And then I look back at my work and see a couple of lines and blotches of color.

You wouldn't happen to have any simple advice for achieving depth in a drawing, would you?

Thank you!

I think the key to achieving the effect of depth in a drawing is the use of a linear (geometric) and aerial (tonal, contrast) perspective. Here is a good explanations of what the aerial perspective is:

"The dark is generous, and it is patient, and it always wins.
It always wins because it is everywhere.
It is in the wood that burns in your hearth, and in the kettle on the fire;
it is under your chair and under your table and under the sheets of your bed.
Walk in the midday sun, and the dark is with you, attached to the soles of your feet.
The brightest light casts the darkest shadow."---Matthew Stover

I love that the foreground composition is almost symmetrical, while the background veers into a very interesting curve.
