I'm confused. So I have to make a color in between the color of the highlights and use it on the left side?

So, you just thought the way the tree looked was deformed o.o?

well ErekT have already translated what my thoughts were:
Quote
The right side (our right) has some sharp highlights while the colours on the left side are more even. This makes for inconsistency within the foilage part of the tree. You can solve this two ways; first one is to just add highlights to the left side but that would appear to bring it forward into the light alongside the right, resulting in a flatter looking tree. Not a great solution in other words.

It seems I choosed the not too great solution in my edit ;)

IM confused on this part:

The other way would be to even out the stark highlights on the right side with in-between colours and/or using colours further apart from each other  on the left side to create a similar sense of contrast there.

Well I admit this sentence also confuses me (and my translator tool) as english is not my mother tongue...

@ErekT: could you rephrase this for us: "The other way would be to even out the stark highlights on the right side with in-between colours and/or using colours further apart from each other  on the left side to create a similar sense of contrast there".

Maybe he meant even out the Dark higlighs instead of stark?

Oops, that sentence sounded lots better in my head actually  :P Sorry about the confusion. I'll try again. What I wanted to say, and I'm certainly no authority on any of this, was that he could try to use an even darker green for the shades on that left side, our left that is, to make it contrast more with the green he's using for the light tones on that same side. That way he'd get the same kind of contrast between the colours used on the left side as he now has on the right. Hope that's clears it up a bit.
