sorry you lost your stuff :(

anyway for the tree i would have the roots extend out alittle and makesure to highlight and shade the tree to give it a less 2d feel :P
In my opinion ;D

I thought that this link might help you when doing the foliage. Good luck!

You're making a tree, complete with foliage? But you've only got the branches so far and you plan to add foliage next? Why don't you go ahead and do that then.

I grabbed what you got so far and did an edit for you.

First, "fixing" your tree to look more natural, yet keeping your thick chunky style. Just tried to refine the forms a bit. Then shaded 'er. Altered your dark mauve base color.



This shading style is very uninventive and just plain pragmatic. Easy to do. But a good starting place.

the general shape of the tree and its foliage is very nice but you need to put the little details that make a tree a tree. for the foliage dont just throw a big foliage chunk on top of the trunk, intertwine the trunk with the foliage, make them seem like the same thing not just one part slapped on another. Put parts of the branches sticking out of the foliage and design the trunk and branches to reflect there surrounding(shade branches in the foliage etc).
Hope this helps at all just keep following the guides and im sure you will have an amazing looking tree :D
In my opinion ;D

Kaito, don't just take Mathias' trunk and slap your foliage on it. That is not what edits are for. They are there to show you ways how to do things better or differently and that you learn from them. Just taking his wont do much for you learning to get better.
There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.
