Hi, my name is Jessica and I'm an artist, and today we're going to draw a kapok tree. So a kapok tree has this long narrow trunk, and then at the top of the long narrow trunk are these branches that come out, and they're very graceful and long kind of branches here, and then there are a lot of little leaves that cover these branches, so I would draw a lot of little circles or you could also just use one shape to kind of accentuate all these little leaves all across this tree. And together these leaves and the branches stretch up to make a very round and long looking kind of shape. So the more of these little circles, AKA leaves that you put onto the tree, the more of that filling that you're going to get, and the more that kapok look is going to emerge. And, so, you get the idea. And that is how you draw a kapok tree.
