lol XD well i can't help you with the patience part, but the next thing i plan on doing is doing ether drawing different types of grounds, or more elabrate trees meaning actully whole trees instead of just the trunks.
yey tutorialness!...I HAVE A TREE THATS PERFETCLY STRAIGHT! * holds up a twig* NOW WHAT!? this is helpful! seeing as i always mess up toning the tree highlights and all tat jazz! thank youuuuuuuu!!!!!!!
X] it doesn't have any nobs or is slightly bent to one side? I would like to see that twig of yours lol i'm glade you will find use of this =] i didn't really esplain much on how to shade the tree but what i find is helpfull is to actully draw the rays of light then draw the shadows acording to that. If that makes any sence X]
