Hi good people! This is my entry for baobab pixeljoint weekly challenge, I run out of time, so I rushed out some things to make it at least presentable, if you find out some dirty pixel or bad texture, that's my fault :'D

I welcome any CnC, and maybe I will finish this out later, I'm back to my work lol, that's it thx for coming!

Well, I was convinced that cactus live in every desert, but no way xD

They come from America. Only one specie lives Africa but it's not the kind depicted here.

RolandMelvinZ (Level 4 Button Man) @ 6/18/2015 03:40

thanks! and here in Indonesia I though that cactus originated from africa.. my whole life is a lie..

RolandMelvinZ (Level 4 Button Man) @ 6/18/2015 03:39

thank you :'D

It was sure win ;p

Congratulations for your award, you deserve it :D
(By the way, Baobabs live in Africa and Cactus are from America, but it doesn't really matter here, isn't it?)

RolandMelvinZ (Level 4 Button Man) @ 6/10/2015 20:24

thank you very much :'D I just somehow want to add the cacti there, and good that I find there're people that love it :3

RolandMelvinZ (Level 4 Button Man) @ 6/10/2015 20:21

thank you for your vote! :D yeah, I want to improve it after the challenge's voting is done.

RolandMelvinZ (Level 4 Button Man) @ 6/10/2015 20:20

omg elk, I really love your works *_* thx for comment here, it's make my day feel brighter XD well, I never play R.O.S.E, I search it a bit and yeah, maybe it have similar feel :3

Speaking as someone who lives among saguaros I can say that Baobabs do not grow here, but in Africa. I love that you mixed them anyway, and the choice in colors and texture makes this piece a jewel.

Chroso (Level 1 Intern) @ 6/9/2015 14:09

The colour use and contrast is excellent in this piece. I like the details of the bark, cacti and rock. I don't feel the lines of the composition entirely. It could use a dark foreground layer and some AA on some edges, but overall the piece is impressive. It has my vote.

Elk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 6/9/2015 08:43

somehow reminds me of R.O.S.E online

RolandMelvinZ (Level 4 Button Man) @ 6/8/2015 14:37

u have my thanks :D

RolandMelvinZ (Level 4 Button Man) @ 6/8/2015 14:36

thank you :D whoa, I didn't even check about the cacti origin, I will pay attention to it next time *_*

Mr.Fahrenheit (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 6/8/2015 14:27

Great textures and colors!

sakhart (Level 4 Murderer) @ 6/8/2015 07:40

that's very good, great work, i really like the style and detail in this, does not seem hurried atall.. 

but besserwisser in me wants to make a minor comment about the cacti in the picture, those type of cacti are not indiginous plants of either Africa, Madagascar or Australia and even if they were baobabs normally grow near watersources

RolandMelvinZ (Level 4 Button Man) @ 6/8/2015 06:40

I think you're right, If I still can update it I want to improve it at least *_* but I will note it for my next piece, thanks a lot!

Friend (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 6/8/2015 06:32

Beautiful, but the cropped branches really hurt the composition

RolandMelvinZ (Level 4 Button Man) @ 6/8/2015 06:12

thanks :D

helcril (Level 7 Colonel) @ 6/8/2015 04:36

Great texture, colors and aerial perspective! 

Though I'm not sure about cropped branches are good or not...  

RolandMelvinZ (Level 4 Button Man) @ 6/8/2015 03:17

thank you m(_ _)m I'm happy, this is also still a study though :'D but please feel free to study it =w=b

RolandMelvinZ (Level 4 Button Man) @ 6/8/2015 03:15

LuckyCassette (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 6/8/2015 01:07

This is extremely impressive. I'm going to have to study this one closely.

clefairykid (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 6/8/2015 01:01

I am so going to find an excuse to put a starry night sky in an entry for something one day though :P

RolandMelvinZ (Level 4 Button Man) @ 6/8/2015 00:39

clefairykid (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 6/8/2015 00:22
