STEP 1. This is just a tip step that visually shows you how the roots of a tree may protrude through the ground. This happens with humongous trees like oaks, and maples. You can also draw a straight stemmed tree without the uprooting like you see here.   STEP 2. When making tree branches you should always have some of the branches exposed through the leaves. This makes for a more realistic feel because no tree is fully covered by leaves. There is always exposed branches and sticks that show through.   STEP 3. Here I explain the difference between tree bark patterns and sticks. The sticks of a tree are the skinny or small arms that grow off the random branches on a tree. It is the stick like branches that the leaves grow on.   STEP 4. Begin by making a large circle for the tree top, and then a straight line for the trunk. It should look like a lollipop.   STEP 5. You will now begin drawing out the tree trunk starting at the top. Make the small branches and gradually make the branches larger the more you move down the trunk. When you get to the bottom you can either have a uprooted trunk, or leave the roots below the ground, your choice.   STEP 6. Now for the last drawing step, take your time as you draw in the foliage. This is easily done just by making bumps until it looks like a full head of curly hair. Erase the lines and shapes that you drew in step one.   STEP 7. Here is what your easy tree looks like when you are all done with your drawing. Now you can color it in to really complete your tree.
