Hey guys. It's Chris here, and today I'm going to show you how to draw the white birch tree. So what you're going to want to start off doing is you're going to want to start off with a line just going down like that and then on the other side maybe make it just a little bit jagged, not too much but just a little bit because trees are not exactly perfectly shaped. Anything in nature, is kind of, you want to give it a little bit of room to kind of do some swoops and things like that. So this is the trunk of the tree. I'm going to draw some roots at the bottom, just kind of going out like that and you'll want to continue this up, just do the branches. Now there's a branch coming around the side here and that's kind of going underneath in the back and there's another couple branches going up like this and others going up like that, just kind of get crazy and do your own thing with the branches because they're going everywhere. And most of the time I mean the top of the part is not going to be seen so you can kind of just have an outline to know where you're going to be putting the leaves. Okay, now obviously I'm working with a white marker but what you're going to want to do with your white is you're going to want to kind of go along the side just like this and kind of shade in one side but not all the way, just so that you can see kind of where your white is headed. And then if you have a black marker what you can do is you can just do just easy kind of jagged lines like I'm using a white marker which you can still see but I think it would be very helpful to be using a black crayon or a black marker. And basically you're just going to keep going down like this making a lot of little indentations and follow with the contours of the tree lines and they don't have to be perfect. You can just kind of put them wherever you like, wherever you think the separation is going in the bark and then I'm going to take my trusty green marker and I'm going to just do some little, just little kind of dots just to show where the leaves are because when you look at birch tree the leaves are a little bit thinner. They're not as full and branched out as a lot of other trees. So you're just going to kind of put this wherever you can and of course, fill it out at the top as much as you possibly can to kind of hang a little bit. Maybe you want to put some grass at the bottom and you can fill it out all over the branches that you just made just kind of following with the contours of that. There you go guys and that's how you draw a birch tree. Good luck.
