Ze update.

Do you think that the trees in the background need to contrast more from the trees in the foreground? I did the best my abilities allowed without adding more colors. Of course I could be better than that but at the current moment in time I can't really tell. heh. Man it's late...

Personally I think the "background" trees definitely need more separation from the foreground ones. A simple way to do this without adding colors is to just lose the highlight color from them.

I did a quick edit where I took out the highlight color on the background trees, and instead used the midground as the "highlight".



One other thing is that the V branch at the bottom sticks out like a sore thumb when tiled, since it's so noticeable.

thats making the trees tile much much better than before imo. i believe you should just eliminate the v branch at the bottom in that tile or replace it with something less unique, then use the tile with it for variety in the foreground.

Top half is tiling pretty well, but there's a obvious sort of sine wave pattern going at ground level.

Quick and dirty, but you get the idea.

Update- I tried to address the wave issue, I also detailed the background and fixed the tree contrast issue.

I plan on getting to the foreground objects eventuall, f'real I do.

This is tiling, much, much better. I think you're just about done with the backgound in terms of tiling(except there are some errors with the leaves tiling, but I'm sure you noticed that). I think now it's the foreground that needs work. Again, though pretty, stuff like that branch and all is way too unique to tile without showing.

Maybe make the extreme background a better colour than yellow, as, last time I checked, the sky wasn't yellow  :P. But it's all up to you... I really like this.

Hey guys, thanks for the comments!

Dusty:
I still have to 'detail' all of the leaves actually. What we have at the moment is just the blocking of color to get the lighting correct. I'm looking forward to being able to move onto the foreground though. XD

Ragnarok:
There's going to be another layer where the yellow "sky" is. So fear not, there won't be a bright yellow sky. :)

Well I meant you had accomplished getting it to tile nice, and could move on :)
