Hollywood Tower Sketch

Pencil sketch with digital color. How do you achieve texture in plants and trees?

Nice work man! Texture can be done in a number of ways. I like to make a "Splattery brush" which has some scatter and color variation on it, then mess it around. You want it to be small so you don't see all the brush and it doesn't look too PhotoShoppy. Then I take some more normal brush and clean it up, embellish the spatters that are helping, and hide the ones that just look awful. Then there is always photosourceing on a multiply or overlay layer to do some quick randomness to paint over.
