Spring is Coming

Daffodils and crocuses are commonly found in early spring. Their vibrant colours are difficult to ignore and make perfect photos.  In this drawing, I used the gradient and Gaussian Blur tools to give a 3D effect.

A Young Oak in Autumn

There are two layers in this drawing. The first layer is the tree trunk and brunches drawn as a single curve with a series of points. The second layer consists of clumps of leaves positioned on the branches and at the bottom of the tree.

This is one of the clumps of leaves I used in the second layer.  Each leaf is drawn separately and then grouped together with a small twig, shrunk and placed on the branches.

This is the clump of leaves I used at the bottom of the tree.
