    On the sketch itself I cannot immediately see any flaws. It's a good sketch.
    Once you started rendering though, you lost something. Of course, the actual value of rendering this perfectly adequate sketch in favour of a more complete image is debatable, but if you must I would try and use as few brushstrokes as possible as an exercise in capturing light and texture.

    Nice study you have going, good textures. You'll want to add a stronger cast shadow though.

    thanks for the comments guys. These are not supposed to be cast shadows, but branches from the tree further away.

    Here is an update. what do you think ? Obviously i should work more and the roots, but apart from that ?

    Thanks

    I think you've got too much contrast there. Everything goes from pure white to black. I'd suggest using more midtones.
    The textures look now pretty nice. Maybe it could be more visible in lighter areas.

    About the midtones, I think you should try a little bit more... try to put black the darkest areas and go shading for lighter areas..... I think you could do it using an adjustment layer in Photoshop (if you use it), because the rendering for textures is cool...

    best regards
