Not going to lie, I tried to mimic this palette as much as I could by eye retinaleclipse.com/treepalettes3.png I didn't really accomplish what I set out to do in the beginning, but I'm happy with the result. Will definitely be doing more trees later on. 

Here's a palette comparison if anyone is interested (the 15 colour palette being the one I made) 

I think my palette is more stiff, in the sense that I used more of a flat ramp whereas the other one was much more flexible with it's saturation and hue, it also shifts a lot more towards blue. 

It was nice taking a break from side-view art though :P

Haha, yeah, tbh I'm still a bit unsure about how my next tree will turn out :P 

Thanks a lot dude c:

Funny how unsure you were of your ability to make trees in chatterbox. You nailed it.. Great work!

user
Mr.Fahrenheit (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 8/17/2014 05:42

This is really great drawing man!


user
skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 8/17/2014 05:28

Thanks :>

(I just replyed to you on DA about the cyan stuff :P)


user
Daruda (Level 4 Button Man) @ 8/16/2014 13:03

The same thing that I said on DA. It's really original C:
I just wonder about that cyan. 
 


user
skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 8/16/2014 08:56

Yeah, I almost regret making it too clumpy. I was originally intending hte leaves to look more spaced out, but I guess it just turned out this way :P 

Thanks mon! 


user

Well, at first I was surprised, but after seeing arachne trees, I see that the style of the leaves is very much inspired by the trees of it, and in comparison, it's like Arachne gives more breathing space to leaves

anyway it's a great job!

Thanks a boatload Hapiel!


user
skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 8/14/2014 02:32

Thankee dude! Wouldn't be possible to get the colours looking alright without that link in the description.


user
Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 8/13/2014 15:28

Its always tricky to find a style where you can add the right amount of detail to a tree... Here it worked very well!


user
Ciclopiz (Level 2 Dealer) @ 8/13/2014 14:40

Amazing! i love the colours and everything...


user
skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 8/13/2014 05:04

user
Motrox (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/11/2014 15:24

Nice work!


user
Baianinho (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/11/2014 14:55

 Apologize, i do not understand, I trying to translate some things are alone and confused. but I'm not kidding, this really is a great job


user
skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 8/11/2014 14:50

Oh, that's my bad :P, thanks a lot then! But, what if you're joking now, then I will never be able to tell if you're joking or not 


user
skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 8/11/2014 14:50

Thanks so much dude, I dunno though, there's still a long way to go if to make this look like cure's stuff ;D 

Thanks a lot! 


user
Baianinho (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/11/2014 14:31

I thought it is a job of cure kk 

Good work 

user
caca (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 8/11/2014 14:08

You think I'm joking? Alright, but I'm serious. I practically never saw a pixel tree like that.


user
skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 8/11/2014 12:12

Thanks a ton crafty ;D 


user
skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 8/11/2014 12:11

Thanks for pointing that out, you're totally right. I didn't notice that before since I was zoomed in a lot, that affect doesn't seem to occur when it's scaled up more. I'll have to put bigger differences between colours I think to get rid of that.

Thanks a lot though! 


user
skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 8/11/2014 12:09

Maybe lowering the saturation will fix that, or maybe getting rid of the lightest cyan all together. I'll edit it right now : ) 


user
CraftyPixeI (Level 1 Intern) @ 8/11/2014 11:04

- Really good! -


user
Mandrill (Level 8 Partner) @ 8/11/2014 11:04

Very nice, chap! That's an excellent tree with a superb wood texture, great grass and a ton of charme! Would fit a fantasy scene really well!

Some of the colours seem to be a bit too close together to create contrasty leaves. This makes the crown look  blurry in my opinion.

Awesome stuff nonetheless. :)


user
|||| (Level 8 Marshal) @ 8/11/2014 10:42

That cyan blue seems a little out of place.. like some leaves are just blue.

But still a good and unique tree.


user
skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 8/11/2014 08:24

Oh seriously? I had no idea, that's totally un-intentional -and slightly creepy :P (I'm still looking for where they could be)


user
skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 8/11/2014 08:23

 thankyou! 


user
skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 8/11/2014 08:23

Yes, sooooo original  Thanks a lot!


user
skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 8/11/2014 08:22

Thanks kamiwasa! The idea for the blueish leaves aren't mine  Super glad you like it though :D 


user
Manupix (Level 11 Godfather) @ 8/11/2014 08:16

Death tree? I see skulls in there ;)

Great job!


user
caca (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 8/11/2014 07:29

I love it. It's original.

Treetastic!


user
KamiWasa (Level 3 Stalker) @ 8/11/2014 07:27

Duuude this is amazing. I love the different colors of the leaves and the few highlighted blueish leaves and also how realistic it looks compared to conventional trees from games.


user
skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 8/11/2014 07:20

AHHHHHHH thank you so much! 


user
