I didn't quite get the textures of the trees, but the shapes... lol were so easy. I looked at yours and studied the bents of the trees for half an hour lol and then I managed to get the shapes almost exactly right
Thank you so much for this tutorial. Even though I live in a place graced by millions of trees, and I'm usually good at working from a reference, I've found trees (especially bark) to be challenging to reproduce without spending the rest of my life trying to illustrate it as part of a background. This really helped me with my background in this [link] particularly in getting the trees to look like actual, ya know, trees. XD So, again, thank you very much for this clear, direct tutorial. I really hope you do more of these!
Thanks so much for this great tutorial. I love trees, but I never get them right. you are helping a lot ( especially with the tree knees, I never were aware of them until you pointed it out ) So really a big thanks from me
