Edit: Oct. 21st, 2012 - I added some more contrast to the orange parts of the picture and fixed a few minor things.
Woo! Finally finished. I've been working on this one for a while.
Anyway, this is the second contest prize for =Inku-inku
. I kind of went overboard on this one (it was originally going to be a simple badge) but it was worth it. I learned a bunch about painting forests AND I got to test out a new coloring technique. Basically, instead of going in and detailing everything, I used more flat colors and implied a lot of the details. I still have to work on that painting technique a bit more, but it's a good start!
I'm extra happy that I was able to finish this one today! Happy first day of Autumn to everyone in the Northern Hemisphere.
Hope you like it!

Extra special super thanks to ~DimeSpin
for helping me out several times on this picture. I would still be fiddling with the trees and the leaves if it weren't for her. >.> Thanks to everyone else who critiqued this picture as well.
