so ive had this pen and ink sketch in my sketchbook for a few months now... finally decided to take a photo of it (scanners a piece of crap) and then convert it to vector and paint it.



i have quite a fascination with trees and they seem to represent life and death through change of seasons... left side spring, right side winter... kinda.



enjoy.

a little like killing tree, but different enough.

I think the birds should look more like they're flying; they look kind of like floating ducks as they are now.

ah. to the comment about the similarity to killing tree... this has no similarity whatsoever other than theres a tree and life and death are involved... i meant it as the change of season, spring vs winter. not a little girl swinging and a guy being hung on the other side.

oh, and thanks for all the comments so far, i really appreciate it.

I love it! But shouldn't the grass on the dead side be dead?

The grass on the right should be brown. And the branches could probably look a little deader. Like grayish maybe.

I like it when we play and have nice times in trees.

Everything looks like something else these days. Don't worry, be happy! Chur

I absolutely love it.

Perhaps snow would signify winter better?

I love the ducks.
A bit more contrast on the tree maybe? More darks..
And a bit of dirt/weeds trailing from the bottom would be lovely- it looks like it is flying

good idea, but poor design.
