STEP 1. In this instructional step, I talk about the type of pattern that wood may have. Not one tree has the same type of pattern within it's trunk. It's almost like how each zebra has different stripes. Read through this helpful tip, and you will understand the pattern of wood a little better.   STEP 2. This is just a sketch of a few different types of wood that you can find anywhere you look. It includes a sketch of a wood plank, a tree trunk, fire wood, a stick or a branch, and a piece of breaking wood.   STEP 3. This is a realistic sketch of the two different types of tree bark. Wood is a lot more complex than you may have thought, which is why I wanted to do this lesson.   STEP 4. Here is a cool drawing tip that tells you how to color in or add texture and shading to your tree when you are ready to add the detailing and definition. Read through it, so you can get a sense of what I am talking about.   STEP 5. Okay, this is a very descriptive step that talks about how to make your wood look realistic by shading it, and adding some detailing. I think you will enjoy this step, my friend said it was interesting, and she isn't even interested in drawing or wood for that matter.   STEP 6. Okay, this is the last tip that I will give you before we get to the actual tutorial. It talks about how wood should look when it breaks and snaps.   STEP 7. We are drawing four different types of wood variations and this is a very simple step. Start by drawing the shape of a board, and then draw two vertical lines.   STEP 8. Now you can begin sketching out the plank of wood, and then start sketching out the inner wood pattern that is seen on all trees. Next, begin drawing the tree bark on two trunks.   STEP 9. Continue to sketch out the definition and detailing on the plank, and remember what I told you in the extra tip before we began this lesson. Next, move over to the pattern and sketch more peaks using the technique I explained to you, and then begin sketching out the bark on the tree, as well as the smoother version of bark on the tree all the way to the right.   STEP 10. For your last drawing step you will finish off the plank, inner tree pattern, and both barks as you see here. Can you guess which bark is from a soft wood tree, and which is from a hard wood tree?   STEP 11. Here is your finished drawing when you are done. Use the new technique on you just learned on a tree or a house. Great work everyone, and be sure to join me once again.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5. Step 6. Step 7. Step 8. Step 9.
