  1. Very nice tutorial ๐Ÿ˜€ I struggled a LOT, with the tree crown part and beyond thou ๐Ÿ™
    A bit more explaining, on how to draw wavy lines etc. wouldยดve been nice ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Just keep practicing ๐Ÿ™‚ and you will eventually get it. It just needs a bit of dedication and belief in yourself.

  2. When I saw this it look hard turns out it is easy I was able to draw a house with it it did a really good background

  3. It was good and really finished off my log cabin drawing but leaves were a bit tricky so I just finished off the branches and decided my scene was in winter.

    It was great though.

  4. what helped me with the irregular lines of the leaves was like, imagine a circle, but it has bubbles on it. draw the outline of the “bubbles” and itll give you the line shape ๐Ÿ™‚
