In Upsy Down Town, the sky is in the sea.
The rabbit’s in the nest where the birds should be.
The rain is falling up, instead of down. Down, In Upsy Down Town.
There’s a chocolate cake as white as snow, The more you eat, the bigger it grows!
You walk upon your nose instead of on your toes
Down, In Upsy Down Town.

Author here: The title of the book in question is "Crystal: Guardian of Upsidedonia" and I'm currently working to get it out. I'll be posting here when it's ready for primetime.

Rah-bop has done fantastic work on not only the cover, but amazing inked drawings of 12 of the characters for the book's interior. Her ability to picture what I describe is almost telepathic! Thanks rah-bop -- you rock!

great work on the distance perspective and the mountains and people =D
you should have made the stream flowing up the mountain that would have been cool ;)

The stream is supposed to be flowing up the mountain, actually. Is there something I could have done to make that more apparent? I realize it's impossible to tell by looking in my picture. ^^;

hmm
well it looked like the little waterfall is, you know, falling, because of the mist. but I think if you got rid of that and made some details like white water trailing behind the rocks (like this) that would make it more clear.
otherwise its great =D

Do you have a tutorial on how you paint BG's and sceneries like that? Or can suggest one?
Because this is utterly impressive, my dear. I wish I could paint like that.

Sorry, I don't have any tutorials. ^^; My only tips are to look at lots of gorgeous landscape photography because nature is so inspiring all by itself, and check your library or local bookstore to see if they have any landscape-drawing books. I don't know what else to say.
