Commission done for the lovely Megan.
I've never actually done a full fledged tree in illustrated form 100% digitally, and this was my chance to do so!
I like it a lot.

This is a commission - the image is not for use by anyone other than the artist and the commissioneer.

What kind of tree would you say this is ?

I think it could be an african Boabad, but I don't know the story behind the picture.

=)

It's actually my sad attempt at a Weeping Willow. The tree was referenced from a photo or two of one growing in her backyard where she grew up. ^^
I don't have the paitence to emulate the leaves realistically, so it doesn't look perfect, but as an artsy-fartsy drawing it kind of works, hehehe. ^^

This is absolutely amazing, reminds me of my own "Tree of Memories"... though mine had a different swing. I love the tree, it has a lot of character. Even the little flowers have such cute detail!

Excellent. Very lovely. I like that the leaves in the tree are sort of abstract brush strokes and the light effects are a nice touch. It gives everything a more ethereal quality.

Thanks~ haha. I actually didn't draw a single leaf... I had been messing around with this brush that I felt would look nice as "artifical tree leaves"... and I think it worked!
The skeleton of the tree looks nice too. Just a dead... empty tree... ^^

I didn't define the leaves very well, meant to make it "artsy", but it's a Weeping Willow tree~

... I am a bit scared to ask why... but I must.
Why are you frightened of Weeping Willows?

In my time of Kindergarten there was this weeping willow we had on the playground,I kicked a ball near it and went to grab the ball, but then I looked at the tree and in it's trunk, were three holes that seemed to form the scariest face I've ever seen.... I never go near those trees :x even at the ripe age of 18..

the horror..
