Let's talk about trees by ani-r
Let's talk about trees

Let’s talk about trees - a practical how-to for populating your natural environments and landscapes with trees and plantlife in drawings
I’ve seen a lot of people who really want to do nature/landscape drawings but struggle with filling the space. I’m by no means an authority on this matter, but I thought I’d share my observations and ideas about filling nature shots with cool stuff because I really like drawing them and spend a lot of time doing it.

Some observations:

  • It’s hard to figure out what’s in a natural landscape unless you take time and really make a mental inventory of everything you see. Go explore and memorize
  • Draw from life and references
  • It’s too easy to fall into the habit of making ‘convenient shapes’ with trees and branches. Look for alternatives, examine how abruptly branches grow into different directions and split.
  • Mix and match. I never draw a scientifically exact tree species, I mix the relevant qualities from the kinds of trees I know that fit the image. Combine stuff you’ve seen and your imagination.
  • I try to ‘layer’ the vegetation. A forest looks empty with just trees. Think about the medium and low-height vegetation and bushes and then what’s closest to the ground and ON the ground.
  • Take into account what you want to convey with the vegetation; seasons, is the environment lush or harsh, is it creepy or idyllic?

It can be hard to get your duty done when your owner only thought of you half-heartedly and you seem to be missing a part or two and are almost see-through at places.

Something between work. Somewhat dedicated to angrymikko, because he always said that trees and branches matter when we were making Outland, and I’m grateful for that.
