"A vast sheet of water, the commencement of a lake or am ocean, spread far away beyond the range of the eye..." "The deeply indented shore was lined with a breadth of fine shining sand, softly lapped by the waves, and strewn with the small shells which had inhabited by the first of created beings." - Chapter XXX
In the next part of my second extract the location changes to a forest of over sized mushrooms. I've never actually draw mushrooms properly before, so I thought it would be useful to do a quick study on various ones. This took less than 5 minutes to do, so it was very beneficial without being time consuming.
I therefore attempted to put these into practice in my thumbnails:
I enjoyed trying different views for each thumbnail and my personal favorite from this set would be no.50.
In other sketches I have included the over sized fern tree and over foliage as described in the extract.
