A double page layout, I'm thinking I went too much with the tones. It's suppose to be a train accident due to massive land slide off a cliff.

I'm inclined to agree that the tones are a bit overdone...

...says the guy who overdoes his own tones.

I really try my best not to over do it with tones, although when I didn't tone the water, it looks weirdish, and when I didn't tone the ground it looked funny as well. But I do like the tone on top, makes it look eerie. Here is it untoned.

Thinking it's just the 'over' tones that need to be... ...toned down.

I might need to shoot myself for that.

I could be wrong, of course.

I tried removing the tone over the dirt. It looks weird without the overtone, but with it, it doesnt look so bad.

The key to drawing a lot of trees or people packed together is a big blur of greyish with the last row representing shapes of heads/treetops
Only detail you will have to draw is the front row, those have to actually look like people/trees, and a few lost ones in the crowd so they stick out.
The rest are nothing more then silhouettes.

I suppose thats one way. I do know that when I look out over the vast number of trees in the area from the hill, I can see the detail about the same. I can understand super close up having more detail. Oh well.

I can't draw shit myself, but that's what my book on "learning how to draw a comic" says :)
