great job Barry :clap: :clap: :clap:
just add a few loose leaves to break the edges of the leaf clumps, you want them to look more random O0

I, too, had fun with this class, Barry.  Agree with Nolan about the addition of a few more random leaves.

Good work.

Great work.  :clap: :clap:

Just as a tip, never put a big focal right in die center, always move it a bit more to the side, on the third.

Glad you found the proper topic to place your drawing, Diane.

You did a nice job on it and I love the eerie glow in the background.  My friend is into Lord of the Rings and loved this drawing.

Oh! That's interesting  :thankyou: mea I need some more leaf practice n I am not quite happy with the dark tree. Didn't want to add branches & leaves to it but now looking at it should have done something with it  ;D
I have another question for you , I just realised I should have done the spoon shading lesson :o do I add that lesson to my drawings I already have up?

Nice work Sketch!  O0 When first starting to draw leaves it is a bit difficult to prevent putting them in 'ball' like clumps. I still catch myself now and again  :crazy2: . Practice is the key.  ;)

For me, the only thing I would have liked to see is just a bit more variance in the values of the tree trunks. Otherwise.... great job.  :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val

 :thankyou: val! Yes I agree with you, I used a toned paper , not sure if it's that or me  ;D it's much different than other paper and found harder to work with
