First, I would like to apologize for being inactive for such a long time. I'm trying to solve the issues that keep me from doing more stuff.
Now, regarding the image: I tried a bit of a different style, mostly inspired by some great images I found long ago (not here on dA, tho. Scattered around the net on some random forums and such. I started this image months ago). The trees were rendered in C4D by the way, to cut some time, cause I was giving up already. So, hope you guys like it!
(and yeah, there's no hat. That's another one of those common objects that I tried to draw and couldn't really make it look good on the image. And I liked the way it turned out)
