Darkover bit of a sketch

This is a bit of a doodle practice sketch, set on Darkover, world of the red sun. DarkoverCon is coming and I'm not sure I will have anything specifically Darkovan to show there. This is just something for me to experiment with textures and colors, trying to get an alien vegetation effect without being weird or scary. The figure is a wanderer, probably a hunter, though you can't tell what he will catch his prey with. The ban on long-distance weapons for Darkovans means that you can't shoot down animals or birds with a bow and arrow. Probably, he is checking traps or snares. I don't claim any illustrative excellence for this. It's why this Blog is called "Art By-Products."
