Edited this to be a single-thread. Critique and feedback for any of the pieces would be most welcome.

I added a tree - in particular trying to develop a fast style that allows similar trees to be made very fast, e.g. trying to avoid having to paint features onto every single leaf.. this current style is quite fast as just needing to detail a few branches that break up the clusters.

I struggled with detailing the bark, so any suggestions here would be most appreciated, of if any suggestions/feedback about quick leaf patterns.

v1.0
v1.1
v1.2.2

Hi, i think the shading on the character looks a bit messy, i would focus on using bigger clusters of pixels instead of short small lines.

made a quick edit of how would roughly shape it:


the colours are nice and the anatomy seems ok to me ( i could be wrong though hehe)

Thanks so much Mathcong - that does look much cleaner. I'll try and practice this. Much appreciated!

Also, I can't seem to remove the attachment in the main post even after unchecking it and modifying. Is that a bug with this forum?

The character appears way to stiff. The torso is defined by two straight vertical lines - I think you should make them curve a bit more to make the pose more natural.
I also lowered his head a bit, curved the deltoid a bit more and added muscles around the neck. The neck is also almost a straight line but someone muscular would have a clearly visible trapezius.

Thanks so much for your input! That's very useful. I'll work on animating him now.
