Drawing Mine Craft

Today is the second time of the month when I'm honoured to be a Guest Designer at the Crazy Challenge - their theme for the next two weeks is LEAFY GREEN.

We had to use green leaves in our projects.  Now I could have gone down the normal route of doing something girly and flowery BUT my brother's birthday is coming up (tomorrow in fact).

I decided I'd draw something appropriate for him.  He's a BIG gamer and one of the most poplar games is Mine Craft.  If you've never seen the game (a lot of you will) you build environments / people / animals etc. using what look like lego blocks.

I took me forever to draw the tree using a grid to help me create the blocks.  Once drawn I coloured it in a combination of ProMarkers, Copics and black polychromos pencil.
The two sentiments are wood chip elements from Scrapiniec that I've coloured with black marker.  I've doodled a border around the edge of the image then mounted it onto some Kraft and black card for a frame.

Can't wait to see what he thinks of it :D
