tree [WIP]

on: September 30, 2019, 07:35:12 pm


Hi,

looking to improve the tree above,

i still want it to be without outline, and sortof muted like the grass (pretty happy how that turned out).

any feedback is appreciated ;)

The shading looks flat in the tree. There is no clear light source but overall I really like the style of your work.

Thanks for the advice, added an extra shade and more of a clear lightsource.

tried some dithering as well for texture, but not too sure yet :

Dithering only really works if you can cover a large enough area with it. What you've done reads more like a few additional lines rather than dithering. That said, I think it is a step in the right direction, as it breaks up the artificial-looking horizontal lines, turning them into diagonals.
I think you're focusing a bit much on the sections of bark, I'd weaken them by breaking up the lines, and I'd instead create texture with rougher cluster edges.

(I also added some thin branches, as the tree looks unnaturally tidy to me without them.)
