I could not draw tree roots well enough. They would always end up in a poor state, no matter what I did. Eventually, I took a more planned approach to drawing them, and came up with a much easier solution. This is something beginner level artists can benefit from if they are having trouble with tree root drawings as well.
I draw the roots wave and keep the spread out. Avoid drawing them dead straight. The ends are mostly pointy, but you can keep them blunt too if you want.
Draw some wavy roots.
Keep going with the roots.
The roots branch off into more roots.
Draw an uneven line a bit above the roots.
Draw a half circle around the roots.
Sketch some uneven circles and ovals.
Draw a few more rocks.
The soil under the tree is quite rocky as it seems.
You are almost done.
Sketch the small details now.
Use a dark pencil to do the final outlines.
The drawing is ready. Now you just have to color it.
