What you'll need
Generals Kneading Eraser
6B& 2HB Pencils
Blending Stick
Start drawing tree, wider at the bottom, thinner as it "grows".
1
Larger branches can be drawn in a normal direction, thin twings point with the wind.
2
Draw texture on bark with pencil point, shading with side of pencil.
3
Use a smudge stick to aid with blending.
4
Draw leaves, have some "flying"
Add fallen leaves and you can add a"kicked up" spot.
5
You can lay a paper towel down to prevent smudging.
6
Draw a loose circle to show a little wind swirl.
7
To separate the ground from the tree, use diff. pencil lines in those places.
8
Show distant leaves by only using the blending stick.
9
For finer lines, use a 2H pencil.
10
Draw more leaves with both the pencil and blending stick.
11
Last step, use a kneading eraser to lighten some areas.
