How do you draw a tree? How do you draw a tree in winter? No, not in winter. How do you draw a dead tree? Not just a dead tree. How do you a bunch of dead trees that look like they have gone through a forest fire?
Because I like to play with different styles of art, I find myself having rediscover how to draw basic things. The way I've drawn trees previously doesn't really work with the fantasy comic that I'm currently working on, so I've had to spend some time in my sketchbook figuring out trees.
