Hi. My name is Alex Cecilio. I'm a graphic artist. And I'm going to show you how to draw trees from an aerial perspective in Photoshop. So the first thing that you're going to want to do is make sure that your paintbrush tool is selected which is right there. And you're going to want to then go up to the top, to this top left corner and click this arrow, and then this is going to bring up your size of your brushes. So then at the right there's this little triangle, click that. And then go to wet media brushes. And then say OK. And grab, there's a couple of different kinds, I'd say grab that particular brush and then select maybe a greenish color. And actually before you even get started, it might be wise to fill in your entire background with a dark color, perhaps black. And then add a layer, the layer that's right next to the trash can, that's the new layer panel. And then you can kind of start messing around with that with the different brushes. Some of them are more tree like than others, but you can actually like mix different ones if you want to get that tree kind of look. And you can just put a bunch of different colors. If you want to you can always then go down to the bottom left of your layers panel and select either outer glow or stroke. It doesn't matter which one. It's all based on your preference. I'm going to select outer glow. I'm actually going to try both. My name is Alex Cecilio. This is how you paint trees from an aerial perspective in Photoshop. Thank you.
