Materials:
F,HB, B, 2B, 3B, 4B, 5B, 6B, 7B, 8B Mars Lumograph Pencils
Conte White Drawing Pencil
Derwent Charcoal, Medium
Kneadable Eraser
White Drawing Paper (24 in x 18 in)

time to finish: 120+ hours

**********************************************
Edit: Lower contrast for maximum viewing of details and added few details on rocks and clothes
full view size now 1600 pixels wide.

Darker shading of the sky and smudged the rocks viewed from afar as suggested by a friend to create better depth of field.

**********************************************

Additional details for other group submission requirements
Inspired by a song of Blink182 "Miss You"

Technique used to achieve rock details is using charcoal as background for rock tones (grounded, charcoal dust) followed by extensive detailing by graphite pencils, primarily 6B to 8B shading, sky shading was achieved by use of H to 2B pencil.

I love the field of depth you created there!! It is always my intention to create this as well :) Very, very nice details on each little spot of your picture. I can barely imagine how much effort you made! This is a masterpiece!

Thank you. It's wonderful to share such beauty, so i decided to make one like this. anyway, i haven't been able to upload new deviations because i haven't taken time to get them photographed, I've been busy in college and engineering is difficult. new deviations would come this month. BTW your gallery is wonderful. I liked the alien. =D

Great respect for you!You put the details exactly like in photo!I love how these plants and the boys lock of hair slightly furred.tThe smoking clouds with the beautifull ray of light, which caress these mountains is truly realistic and stunning!And its also amazing how the sunlight and shadows seems so equal!Overall the outlines + shadings + the emotions, atmosphere of the picture = you did it really from the heart.:iconclappingplz::iconclappingplz::iconclappingplz:

thank you so much. I could not come up with a better words to share this one but to share it's beauty to all who would look at this, so i didn't put any obvious signature or ruin it with a watermark, and oh, it's free and available for download. I will upload a better and "bigger" resolution once i can get hold again of the DSLR.

Im sure gonna download it!:heart:If my family/friends came to my laptop, Ill show them my desktop first and ask them if this a photo or a drawing!(Seriously, because your work needs a new category that would be named like "too much detailed drawings" or somehow like that :D)
