Hi! I started doing this tutorial and noticed that step 7 is missing... Any way this could be fixed or something? Thank you ^^

Hi Drakashi,

It was probably miscounted. It's all in there :)

Good luck on the tutorial!!

Oh... I just thought because it is miscounted but you suddenly start talking about a mask which wasn't mentioned before? I don't know. I'm doing pretty good anyways, following the images so I guess it's ok. ^^

Thank you for this tutorial, been looking for something like this for a while =)

I loved this, and it helped me so much. However, sometimes it's a little unclear on some points, leaving me just confused as to what you were talking about doing. Not everyone are very advanced in photoshop :P

Ooh, you've just made my day! I hate painting trees because I can never get them right, so I always tend to... "hide" them. This will definitely help me in the future. In fact, I think I might just have to go out of my way to create a painting with a tree now and try this out. :XD: Thank you so much~!

Thanks a lot for making this tutorial!
I suck at drawing overall, but I'm especially bad at drawing backgrounds, specially nature.
This tutorial helped me a lot on how to work, and in what order. I also really like the style of this tree.
I don't suppose you have a tutorial on how to draw leaves on trees by chance...?
