The even-ness of these forests is niggling me, trees of even spacing and simular shape and height. A little more chaos, I think.

Forests are pretty complex. I've had difficulty trying to wrap my head around creating a sense of depth for rows upon rows of trees. These were super helpful tips!

Oh!! this is wonderful!! I enjoy looking at your stuff in general, but the next large-scale project I'm planning almost entirely takes place in a forest setting so this one is particularly helpful for me personally!

 Oh in that case STAY TUNED, you're hopefully going to find parts 2 - 4 REALLY useful! :)

Cheers!

Nice.
I've been working on forests for a coloring book about mountain biking I'm working on. Still haven't figured out leaf litter that doesn't take hours to draw...

Your tutorial pages are not only helpful, but incredibly inspiring. They make me excited to get out my tools and try every different method and technique you describe! Thank you so much for sharing. I have a few friends who have been asking me to teach them how to draw, and I always end up referring them to your gallery.

you ever think about doing like an art reference wiki page for your tutorials? I would pay to have access to a digital library like that!

I'm pretty sure they are called "Fallen trees" and not "felled trees" but I might be wrong.
TheCreatureOfHabit's avatar

Both are correct! "Felled" simply implies something caused the tree to fall -- like a lumberjack or a lightning bolt -- while "fallen" is a more basic descriptor.

Oh! I didn't know. Thank you for the info. That'll increase my english knowledge.
