How to Make Amazing Trees and Shadows
Want to draw beautiful trees and shadows in seconds? With this Trace quick tip, you’ll be able to create stunning trees, with shadows, to make your plans really pop. Here’s how…
Step 1 : Tree Stencil
Trace has a fresh selection of tree stencils–select your favorite one.
Step 2: The Canopy
Using the Water Color Brush with the Landscape Color Palette, shade the base of the canopy with the lightest green. Then add medium and dark greens for further definition of the tree canopy.
Step 3: Shadow
Create a new layer and set the Layer Opacity to Multiply. Slide the Stencil 45 degrees to the right and use gray to create a drop shadow.
Step 4: Repeat
Turn both Layers on and check it out! A gorgeous tree is jumping off of your drawing. Add more trees to really see your plan come alive.
