Stubborn by PaperandDust Stubborn by PaperandDust
...An art competition is coming up, And my mum begged me to do a piece on one of the native trees around town... This is one of the gum trees that the wind has slowly pushed down, and so it grows over the ground now.

Bout 4 hours with watercolour and pen.
Hopefully it even gets into the competition!

(Also, scanner was terrible, so if you see any lines, ignore them! :p)

I love drawing trees, always can be as chaotic as you want and just looks better and better. Tree's are VERY awesome to draw.

Agreed! Trees are certainly one of the better things to draw... They're not confined so much to anatomical rules :heart:

Wow, can I have your tree skill plz?
The scenery you draw is AMAZING too ;u; The texture you gave the ground is so life-like yet stylized at the same time.. I love the twists in the tree and the detail in just everything. Good luck in the art competition! You're super talented so I think you'll do amazing :icondamnseriousnodplz:

Haha, absolutely no theme, which is so damn fantastic - and also depressing... Each artist can do whatever they want, however its gotta be good enough to even get into the competition =/

This looks great. It's got a lot of movement for being a static illustration.
