Natural objects like leaves are one of the laborious drawing that requires lots of work.
The fallen leaves brush material can draw leaves by using strokes only.
This page shows how to make a falling leaves atmosphere scenery,
and give a perspective to the drawing.

The Making of Falling Leaves Scenery
First Draw the foundation of fallen leaves.
Use fallen leaves brush (piled).
The fallen leaf brush is initially set to draw distance with pen pressure.
If you stroke from the back to the front (like red arrow)
you can draw perspective fallen leaves easily.
Create a new layer below,
then stroke with fallen leaves brush (simple) as above to show more realistic.
Drawing layers of fallenl leaves are completed.
Make a new layer below and draw some grass below (using simple grass brush)
Make a new layer at the top and draw grass (using white grass brush).
Finally it is the time to use dancing fallen leaves brush.
Again, create a new layer at the top and
stamp or stroke from behind toward front part by increasing pen pressure.
You can do it over and over until you get your satisfy pattern.
Even though we can finish it for now,
but here add one more stage to have a advance look of perspective.
Make a new layer under the dancing fallen leaves layer,
and apply a white surrounding to the fallen leaves
with a scraping brush (white borders are acceptable).
By doing this, the outline will stand out and the fallen leaves of the leading role are emphasized.
Furthermore, create a new layer or a new white tone underneath and add a little white at the back.
So dancing fallen leaves and the back scenery will firmly separate,
and the perspective feeling with the fallen leaves of the leading role will emphasized.
Apply light shade gradation tone under the dancing fallen leaves for the finishing.
It is completed by follow the basics of perspective
“the front is dark (details) and the back is thin (simple).”
Here is the final layer composition.
If you divide the layer into multiple layers (as far as you can figure out)
it will be easier to edit later.
You can merge the layers after editing.
In this way, using the brush material makes it easy to draw falling leaves.
Please give it a try.
