    trying to draw a tree

    This is a tree drawn using the method outlined in Brian's tutorial from his web site.
    Thanks Brian, appreciate the tutorial very much, I learned a lot from it.
    This was drawn with ArtRage 2.5 which I dearly love!
    There are a couple of errors in it I need to correct, some of the tree limbs are too thick!
    New corrected version as per Robert's advice.

    Very well done Joe. My suggestion here would be to make your skies of this type gradually lighter near the horizon.

    Thanks Robert, I appreciate your advice very much!
    I lightned up the sky near the horizon as suggested, might be a little hard to see.

    Another great effort, Joe Deer. Its amazing how great the tutorials here are, no?
    The only problem with humor is that no one takes it seriously.

    I think it works pretty well! Keep pluggin' away with painting. You have a knack.

    Pretty good!
    Personally I prefer to give the dark base with oil and also add low pressure, thinned oil for other parts' less dark base. I use glitter quite moderately and sometimes I ratehr prefer little strokes in appropriate directions or to blend glitter a litter along proper directions. I'm also think to substitute glitter some little metallic/ chalk for foliage far away.
    I hope that what I say, even if I'd point out I'm just an amateur, may be of some use in Your experimentations.
