Then start to draw the leaves of trees.
First of all, draw the trunks and branches as the foundation.
Using “Trunk, branch, root (vertical line_white)” brushes

Since the majority of branches are hidden by leaves,
just draw the branches which peeking out from the leaves.

You don’t need to draw unnecessary thing.
In manga drawing, it is important to improve the efficiency.





Add more detailed branches.
Here Use a “branch brush (white)”,but most of them will be hidden by leaves.

Make another new layer and painted the blue circle with white.
※It is also possible to use a “layer mask”.
Shaded areas are added to the red circle.





Hold “Ctrl” key + click the layer and take the selection area of the leaves of trees
and paste any tone on the leaves.

To make a difference with the front, changing the color of the tone
and differentiating it somewhat is completed.


If you keep the layer separate for each part, it will be much convenient for the finishing.

You can merge the layers after editing.
