how do trees???? :O
Well, first I started with a vague representation of the trees in the foreground (and the background but they’re pretty blurry in the end too.)
Just blobs, really. No actual form to them. (Sorry this is the earliest I started taking screenshots because I forgot.)
Then I started adding to the form bit by bit, adding little details and refining + defining the form.
Till finally I got the end result.
