[WIP] Amazonian Jungle Tree

on: August 23, 2008, 02:41:32 pm
Hey! My first post on pixelation. I've been doing pixel art for some time but I'm looking to get a lot more into it. I'm much better with characters so I'm not sure about this tree I'm working on. Looking for C&C please!



The tree should act as part of a background for a game. Here is one of the character (I'm not really looking for C&C for this one, it's just a ref):



Here is the main reference I used:



Thanks!

The tree could be less brownish and more greenish, like in the pic.

Also, If you really want it to stink of the amazon or similar rainforest,  give it large buttress roots, like in the photo.  In your pic it just sort of looks like the trunk widens at the base.  google buttress roots for lower angle ref pics.  If this is for a game I would keep the one you have and just make some more.  But more greenish gray and less brown would be better.

Thanks for the cues. Here is a new tree I made. The shape is much more convincing, but I think I'll have to work some more on the colors.
