Been sketching lots of trees lately. Trees are beautiful in winter.
It turned out more realistic than I tought, too much maybe.
Update: larger canvas, cleaned up a bit, new preview.
This is realy neat
Interesting piece. Love how you've done the small branches, very stylised.
Very nice form of capillary action. Very simple though (which was probably your intention).
I could see a sky and if no sky then snow. Maybe even a broken limb.
Nice. Trees in winter are really beautiful; I miss them. I used to live somewhere cold and now I don't anymore. I think this would be cool in a game sort of like Knytt, if you've ever played that.
That bird totally owns its 8 pixels! Love the tree too, of course :)
Thanks for comments and fav's!
@ ska: thanks a lot for the advice! Seems obvious now, but I wouldn't have thought of it. Negative space, whatever it is, is on top of my learning list from now.
amazing & original!
I see that Skamocore beat me to what I was going to say.
Canvas size aside, this is stellar--really, really pretty.
Nice detail 5/5
The tree seems a bit crammed into the canvas. I think this would work a lot better with a composition overhaul, if you're not restricted by a canvas size. Have a look at this piece in terms of negative space; it might be a bit extreme, but it's something to think about.
Anyway, love the colours (especially the spash of red of the bird) and the scan-line dithering.
Digging the tree. I'm not really reading the pixels on the end there as branches, but it looks cool nevertheless. Great job!
