Hi, my name's Erik, I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw a large tree with branches. Okay, let's start by bringing up the trunk of the tree, let's add one branch here, bring the trunk up more and let's start this side of the trunk, let's bring a branch out here and let's have it divide into two branches there, this trunk up. Okay, lets have the top of the tree divide into two segments there as they do sometimes. Okay, outside this portion of where the leaves come up, this portion here and just start filling in where the leaves are, just an outline of that. Alright, and you can do the same over here and on this side and then you can make these look more like leaves by just adding curves and volume to it, fill that in, fill-in this down here and for the trunk you can add some lines to have the trunk flows too with the bark, that down. Just have these lines follow the tree, bring this down, this line here, bring this down, this down and up here fill-in that, fill-in these lines and then you can add the grass below the tree and to show what goes into the earth and have those lines connect down all the way to the base. Fill this in a little bit more and that is how you draw a tree with branches.
