Hey, guys! It's Chris here. Today, I'm going to show you how to draw a treetop. So, basically we're just going to start of the idea of a trunk here kind of coming up. Couple branches, just making the lines a little bit squiggly. You can kind of do the branches however you want, really. I mean, there's not really a set rule to the way that trees look. So, kind of even make an extra branch going off the side, Maybe if you want to do, like, a hole in the tree, could do it like that. Then, we're going to take our green. And actually, I only have one color green here, but if you have access to other different colors, you can basically use darker greens and start that off, because you're going to want to start with the shadows first when you're drawing a treetop. But, basically, what I'm just going to do is, I'm just going to do, like, some kind of squiggly lines just, like, all over the place, nothing really too defined, just to kind of show that it's just the outline of a tree. There we go. Now, we got our basic tree. Like I said, if you guys have darker colors, you want to start with that first. And, you're going to want to start kind of, like, underneath the tree here, so that when you get to your lighter colors, you can start using those towards the top like the sun's coming onto the top of the tree. And then, if you want, you can just flesh it out. If you do have one color, like I do today, you just kind of flesh it out like this. Just kind of do a bunch of little squiggly lines, just kind of show that there's a bunch of leaves. There's all kinds of leaves all over the place. Maybe if you want to draw a vine or something, there's a vine maybe coming down, a couple of them. Maybe if you want to draw some birds, too, you can do that. Pretty simple bird. Basically, you're just going to go up, down, up, almost like a smile. And, there you go guys. That's how draw a treetop. Thanks a lot! I look forward to seeing yours.
