Welcome to my video on how to draw pine trees. I do not care if you do not know how to draw, I guarantee if you watch this video or some of my other videos and with a little bit of practice, you could draw just as well as me if not better!

I start my drawings out simple and work into the detail to bring it into a more life like look.

The first step is to get a center line that will be the entire tree. The center line helps a lot when drawing any tree. After this, it helps to create a general shape where the tree will be.

After this is done, make the center line higher. This will become the very top of the tree. I put in some scribbling detail on this. Work very quickly with this, It does not have to be perfect. Leave some spaces between branches and use the underhand grip to scribble in some small details.

Keep the pencil constantly moving, add in small scribbles, the more little detail you add in, the more realistic the tree will look.

Keep in mind that the tree is a free living thing, try and replicate the free look by swapping between detail and very loose hand strokes.

The whole general shape of the tree was done with an HB pencil. The next part of the tree is the shading part. This is all done with a 2B pencil

I use the 2B pencil and go under the branches and make them darker than the rest of the tree. Shading the tree helps to create a more lifelike and realistic look. Pay close attention to how I hold the pencil. It will help you when you draw this picture or any other tree.

I later add a trunk to the tree or a stump. This helps to add character and also plants the tree into the ground. After you add that, shade it in and the picture is pretty much done!

Good LUCK!!!
