Tree house


When I was a kid I used to dream of building an amazing tree house. I would sit and sketch and sketch all day long, just ideas about my tree house. Every now and then I would try to actually build one in some empty tree in a vacant field in my neighborhood. But eventually some adult would come along and ruin it all. When I sat down to work on a new digital painting, I thought back on all those sketches I used to do. I had so much fun thinking about all the little details that would be part of the tree house. There were a lot more little things that didn't end up making it into the drawing, which I kind of regret and I'm thinking of maybe recreating it in a different way. After refining the sketch and laying in values I added color. After adding the color I kind of missed the old black and white version. So I saved a version of the black and white, just to hold on to.
