Scenery step-by-step drawing tutorial: step 1

1. Begin the cartoon scenery outline by drawing a pine tree. Use two curved lines for the pointed tip of the tree. Then, draw two curved lines extending outward, with scalloped, curved lines between them. Repeat these triangular scalloped sections, allowing them to grow bigger each time.
