A Tutorial by Linescapes on Drawing Trees

"The most important thing to understand is the level of detail we want to apply to a tree. The type of drawing we want to use for a tree depends on the scale. We abstract the trees that are more distant and apply more detail to the ones up front or the ones we want to emphasize.

We usually get the best results when combining those different levels of abstraction in one drawing. Now let’s look at three simple ways to draw trees with a pen.

The first to draw the habitus of the tree with the branches. We start with the trunk and the outline of the habitus and start spreading the branches. They split into smaller and smaller branches. It’s important to reach all the way up to the outline with the small branches. This gives the tree a realistic look. 
This way of drawing is especially good for showing tree species, since they each have a different shape of growth. 

The second way is to draw a volume instead of the branches. It’s useful when we want to emphasize the spatial quality of a tree. We draw the shape of the habitus. It’s almost never a single shape, but consist of several shapes. Often we can see some branches through the canopy. Drawing them makes the tree seem more realistic. In the end I give the tree an oblique hatch to give it a feeling of volume.
The finally type of drawing is applying texture to a tree. I do this when texture is important or I want to add a lot of detail to a tree that is very near. I start by drawing the trunk and some basic branches, then start adding the texture of the leaves. I draw more of them where I want the tree to appear darker.”

Marlo Meekins: Caricature as Character

Marlo Meekins is a legendary creature: the continuously and gainfully employed artist, illustrator, and cartoonist who’s worked on everything you love, but you still somehow haven’t heard of. Unless you’re into illustrators on Tumblr of course, in which case it’s hard to miss her distinctive line.

Hailing from the cluster of suburbs on the New Jersey side of Philadelphia, Meekins wanted to learn animation in college, but settled for illustration and design. That turned out not to be settling at all, as the discipline obviously informs her work and creative life. After school, she went right to regular illustration and character design for the studios, taught drawing and cartooning, and entered the world of competitive caricature. In 2009 she was named Caricaturist of the Year by the International Society of Caricature Artists.

Meekins spent a hot second working on The Simpsons but dropped the gig to join John Kricfalusi at Spumco, where she met her husband, director Nick Cross. Since then, she’s been contracted on all kinds of developing shows (including one for Disney), while still omnivorously teaching, drawing, and posting her work online.
