Step by step tutorial on how to draw a tree
I like using trees in my art but I struggle over them. That is until I found a way to draw fractal trees. I have a post on them on this blog which uses a downloadable tool to make them (see below for a link to this post).
But what if you want a hand drawn tree? Then this is all you need. The tree is a simple process, start with a single line for a trunk and then add the first branches – it’s a good idea if these are around 2/3 the length of the trunk. Then continue adding the exact same shape at the end of each branch – just a little smaller each time. In no time you have a fully fledged tree. Simple and smart.
If you want one created automatically for you, check out this blog post: Way too cool – create your own fractal trees.
