Prelim sketches. I know im super late, so if anybody has time to critique these I'd really appreciate it! Gonna jump into Illustrator tomorrow, so I'd love to get some feedback beforehand!

Not sure if I should go Green/Brown (Leaves/Trunk), or make the whole thing B/W. 

Can't really pick whether I should go thin/straight for the trunk, or slanted/wide. And which shapes to go with for the leaves. 

Anyways, all feedback is appreciated. Thanks!
