Just use three colours for the grass, and make them be darker and lighter, more extreme.  Not sure how to word that, but I'm sure you got what I meant.

At first glance I thought the grass was some kind of text font :P
It was pain to try reading it...

Go with Dragens advice. 3 hues and a little more contrast.

I wasn't sure if contrast was the right word, I associate contrast more with different colours rather than darker and lighter shades.  I realize you're completely right though.  I was going to use contrast too, damn.  I remember seeing this piece of art the last time I was here, and that was a long time ago.

Hey Jack, you can still make it smaller.

The man could be made more anatomically correct.

You can use perspective on the bridge if u want.

I dont know how to draw grass either but http://www.mobygames.com/game/simon-the-sorcerer/screenshots might give u some ideas. Probably best not to copy my grass, its just an experiment.

Wow, thanks alot for making me feel small Sharprm!  LOL.  I didn't realize my guy was that off.  I will try to do as you all recommend.  One thing, why do you think smaller?  Thanks again!

Actually sharprm's hips are twisted in an unachievable manner (as well as the feet out of that). The torso is seen from the front, but the legs and feet from the side. What would be more logical is twist the torso towards the empty hand (as if he's pointing at some direction. Then you can make him hold the gun a bit more in front of him, and let it look like he walked towards the bridge but on his way was asked for some road or something.

PS: I liked your tank, keep it in pretty please.

Hope that fixes hip problem. My intention wasnt to make u feel small. What I meant about the size is that the bigger the picture, the more time it takes to finish. Your seemed too big, or maybe im just lazy.

Last post before I go to sleep.  I want to do an action shot, nothing too fancy.  Im tempted to restart the officer.  I think that I will twist his torso more to the direction the head is.  Dont know if this is right.  Thanks for helping me alot guys.

I think it mostly is, but he points at something, so whyu isnt he looking at where he's pointing; he's also not holding his gun in an active combat pose, so what lies ahead of him at this moment is most likely not important or dangerous at all.
