Adding something to make this sketch "interesting"
Hi guys, I'm 17 and currently trying to assemble some sort of portfolio (not looking to pursue an art career, I'm more of a hobbyist). Currently my biggest problem when drawing is having some sort of focus in the image: something that makes it stand out or interesting to look at. This sketch I'm posting is a rough one done pretty quickly but I feel like it's missing something. Do you guys feel that too? (obviously it's a sketch, so it's missing color but besides that). Any other tips/critique with perspective or anything else are welcome. Thanks everyone!

there are a couple of things you can do.
1 don't divide the image in half which is what you did. make it more land or more sky but not both.
2 all of your hills or rocks are the same size roughly let one be much bigger
3 don't space things equally you have them all placed at about the same distance apart from each other
4 decide on a direction for your lightsource and shade accordingly
