Thanks for trying the tutorial, hope it was of use. I'm putting it up at the top, good work!

@InTheSystem

Looks fine, if you worked with some smaller brushes you could enhance detail and allow the branches to taper off a little more towards the outer edges.

@kotsergy

Nice take with the snow! Makes a new twist to it and works well with the blue.

@Spitfire

Always fun to see different colour schemes to the blue of the tutorial. Try with some smaller brushes to make the branches taper off to smaller ones.

Mmk, finally got around to doing your tuts Griatch! I'm pretty far into your landscape one, but way back I was disappointed in my trees, so I did this (and it really helped), so I figured I would finally post it. Expect the landscape one soon ; )

Sorry for any strong critiques, but I like to be critiqued as hard I possible, it's what makes me better, so I try to return the favor, lol.

@TheBraino

I like that one, good structure to the tree and also interesting that you use a slightly higher angle (we see the roots a little from above it seems). The light effects work well too. Glad the tutorial was of use to you!

Nice tree, and the bottom design is very interesting.

Fun tree with an interesting take on the root system. You might want to consider extending the branches some more with smaller ones, but that's for a future image. :) Putting this up in the hall of fame!

Yeah...I honestly rarely use the airbrush, but I did find the hotkeys very useful and fun to play with. ^^

But here's my attempt at drawing the dead tree with a mouse. There's parts I like, and parts I don't like, although two things to keep in mind:

1. I'm left handed, but cannot use a mouse left handed. So this was done with my right.

2. The mouse is a cheap little 20 dollar GE mouse that likes to be jittery.

Those two things are why I've been mostly using the paths tool until I can afford a good tablet.

@Kilron

It's tough work working with an off-hand, you did a good attempt at it though! Branches look okay, also you got a proper tapering off of the branches there, good one. Possibly you could try to use the whites to hilight only one side of tree to indicate a light direction. Putting it up in the hall of fame up top. :)

Yeah, I'm not the best with shading and lightsources. <.<; For my avvy (not that you can see it real well anyways), I just took the path I used for the hair, and scooted it over a bit, lol.

I've been meaning to pick up a few books on shading and some other things like that pretty soon, but heck, there's a lot of things I've been meaning to get. XD;

@Zaniac

No, it does not suck, certainly not for a first ever try! You have gotten all the gist of the tutorial down here, and I like that you put some bright lines of structure into the trunk too. Possibly you could make the branches expand even more gradually from thick to thin, but it looks quite ok already as-is. :)

Thanks for trying out tutorial. If you supply a thumbnail I'll put it up in the hall of fame. :)

@Erximir

Hi and welcome to GimpTalk! Sorry for not replying sooner, I missed your post until now. ^_^;

Nice tree! Cool that you added some landscape and snow effects around it too. I have no real critique to give there, it looks fine. Possibly you could continue building the snow on the ground a bit more, no need for the pink to shine through after all - but this is intended to be a sketch so it's fine.

Thanks for trying the tutorial! Putting it up in the hall of fame. :)

@MrGimpDE

Thanks for trying the tutorial! It's a fine result, I hope you got some ideas out of doing it. To develop this further you could try to add some white highlights as well, to indicate a little more from which direction the light is coming.

Good job, If you send me a thumbnail version I'd be glad to put it up in the hall of fame. :)

Thanks for the heads-up, seems the old image host went down. I uploaded larger pictures now (so they are not clickable anymore, but are instead bigger from the onset). Enjoy!

I know mine's not good, but I'm pretty proud of my result anyway. Just needs more definition. Thanks for the awesome tut!

You can tell that I started on the right side and finished on the left, where I got a bit less sloppy lol.
