Oh dear me, definately the best tree painting tutorial out there. I am so bad with backgrounds, hence I never bother with them. Then again with your tutorial I might want to try again, so thank you!

Wonderful tutorial. My thanks! For some reason, I've always been horrible at rendering trees, and I think that this will help tremendously. It's never the shape that bothered me, it was finding a decent method of getting the sticks and leaves to interact correctly.

Nice method and the method I have used. Now I can just point people here instead of explain. It also works for vines and creepers too.

Great technique but I think this is for people who use tablets. Do you use a tablet? I use a mouse. :(
Reply
:iconplaguedog:
Plaguedog Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2012   Digital Artist
Yes, this is definitely done with a tablet, I added that to the artist comment since I think it was easy to miss in the instructions.

However, It's definitely doable with a mouse! It's just going to take more time and effort.
