Drawing a tree is simple, but drawing an amazing one isn't. However, Japanese artist @hanari0716 introduced a simple drawing method to help anyone master how to draw an incredibly realistic tree. In just 2 days, his 2-minute video lesson got over 40,000 retweets and 90,000 likes. Admittedly, he was pleasantly surprised that so many people wanted to learn to draw his tree...

@hanari0716 describes that since the light is coming from the upper left side of the tree, the right side should be drawn darker. He also advises using a fine-tipped pen to produce the best results. Now you can go surprise your friends by illustrating a beautiful tree in minutes!

Even people with little artistic background had no trouble whipping up a brilliant work of art:
