    hedgehog to hug.

    a story of the hedgehog who dreamed one day that he is being hugged- now he wants it for real. For the moment i have one drawing ready and the second one not finished yet. Do you think that the perspective in the second one is good? do you have any suggestions how to draw branches on the trees and the bushes?
    many greetings to all of you

    The glitter tool does a fine job of making leaves on trees, bushes and flowers. Keep the pressure, and size down in the lower ranges, and play around with using metal in the color to get the look you want.

    The tube can give you some really great looking limbs (and tree trunks), but it's sometimes time consuming, requiring a lot of attention with the knife. It's made much easier by using the tube to draw the limb on a separate layer, export that layer to the desktop, make the original layer invisible, then import the layer from the desktop back into the painting. It will then have normal consistency and be easier to manipulate.

    Make a few main branches, paint in the leaves for the whole tree, then go back and fill in spot areas of branches with whatever tool you prefer.
    Use slightly lighter colors for the leaves where the sun would be hitting them, a little darker color for the areas that would be in the shade.

    Unfortunately I'll have to wait for my grandsons to have an excuse to buy the book with so nice illustrations. Fantastic pieces!

    Olga the hedgehog is sad cause it wants to be hugged and everyone is afraid of the spikes.


    here is a hedgehog trying get the solution what to do with the prickly spikes. he had some moments of doubt, but at the end he came to the brilliant idea
