Illustration Friday: Adapt
I finally got a new sketchbook. I really like it. My goal is to do at least one drawing per day in it. What are the chances that the drawing I was doing this morning just happened to fit the topic posted this morning?
Baobab trees adapt to harsh, dry climates by growing huge, thick trunks to store water. This is one from Australia, but different species of them also grow in Africa and Madagascar. I think they're pretty cool.
As far as the drawing goes, I didn't know if I had the patience to do it, and I found that I did, but just barely. It's nowhere near as cool as Ces's trees, but alas, I'm not Ces. I've always loved trees, and have drawn a lot of them, but only the trunks and branches, never the leafy parts, because how in the world does one do that? Perhaps that's something I ought to work on....
