Draw a Cartoon Christmas Tree
Here is a Christmas Tree drawn on a computer. If you want to drawn your
own tree just like it, follow the instructions below.
Well, this looks very cool, but it is actually very easy to create.
The christmas tree itself is just made up of four blobby shapes which have
been filled in with a 'gradient'. A gradient is a smooth change from one colour
to another. My tree blobs start out green on the left and end up white on
the right. The snow on the trees go from blue in the bottom left of each blob
to very light blue top right.
Paint Shop Pro is the software I used.
Most computer art programs (except 'microsoft paint' that comes free with
Windows) have a gradient fill option.
an example of a box with a gradient fill. As you can see there is a smooth
transition between Blue in one corner and yellow in the opposite corner.
The shape of the blobs is not particularly important, so long as they get
smaller as you go up the tree. Start from the bottom, because otherwise the
overlapping of layers looks odd. Then to finish it all off, the stars and
baubles were added using the Paint Shop Pro's inbuilt 'stamp' tool.
