Pencil on paper, 5.5″ x 8.5″
I started this about a month ago but I forgot about it until I was turning through my sketchbook a few days ago and decided to finish. It’s kind of a frankendrawing because I changed pencils and styles a few times. I remember not being sure how I wanted to draw the clouds so they got erased once or twice…
Here’s a closeup of the tree so you can see the pine needles. I actually enjoyed drawing them. It kind of reminded me of making pixel art.

I really like this drawing; especially the mark making and sense of depth and space.
Thanks, I’ve been trying to work on improving the sense of space lately. ^_^
The gnarly tree’s shape turned out great!
Part way through trying to figure out where the branches should go and how they should split to look good I realized I could just draw the needles where they needed to be and then lead the branches into them. 🙂
