the trunk looks amazingly well done and i love the twisted shape to it, it gives it a sense of oldness....overall very well done, keep it up

The bush looks flat, but the trunk is awesome. O:

love it.. especially the apples on the ground and the tree's trunk (does not look very wooden, but who cares if the shape rocks =)

only crit is that there are a bit too much equal copy-and-paste leafs - that pops out i think

I guess I need to get something straight here. The basis for this piece was not Michaels apple tree. Yes, it inspired me, but the piece started out as an assignment to do illustration for an article and at the time I started doing the tree I wasn't really thinking about Michaels piece.

As I stated before a lot of artists use curled up tree trunks, so do I, it looks cool. So inspiration for that has become before making this, and from many places, not just Michael. I guess people just tend to pick up ideas along the way and use those ideas in their own work, and I don't see much wrong with that.

I guess the thing that bothers most of you is the leaf part (?). At first I wasn't even going to bother making leaves and the tree looked like this. But I had to ditch that version because  the article is about "autumny" food - so the tree would need apples and I couldn't figure out a stylish way to place the apples into that bundle of green. So I went on and made leaves and it all looks much nicer.

So I guess my point is that it wasn't my intention to copy or steal from anyone, and I senserely hope no one thinks I did. Inspiration doesn't come from one place, and look into fantasy illustration, the artists works have similarities, but each one does things in their own style.

Aand I guess I should shut up about now.. :) oh yeah and fix that blinking thing..

Yea, aside from the instant Final Redemption I also noticed, I do like the base of the trunk. But you must fix that one annoying frame. And give more body to the leaves. Also it is standard to in some art practices to atleast mention the artist of whose art your piece was directly inspired but oh well atleast you didn't just edit his picture.

Toby (Level 3 Stalker) @ 10/17/2005 00:51
Yeah shure, inspired. But my goal wasn't to remake the tree in anyway :)

Besides, there are lots of artists using curled up tree trunks, and Michael (or Kon) isn't the only one. :)

A little too heavily inspired, I'd say.

Toby (Level 3 Stalker) @ 10/16/2005 01:23
Well, not really. I had a few different bunches of leaves that I juggled around with and then added extra leaves on top.

Citizen_Insane (Level 1 White Belt) @ 10/15/2005 12:41
Looks good  did you break the leaves up into separate tiles?

wet (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/15/2005 07:44
wow.. amazing ... the leafs are very nice

Di0xygen (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 10/15/2005 07:01
the trunk is wonderful, the details in the leafs is good.

but the main problem is the lack of volume, in the leafs. Its too wide and not tall enough, fells like squashed :P

good job none the less

m4rsellino (Level 5 Trash) @ 10/15/2005 06:34

Angel (Level 5 Soldier) @ 10/15/2005 06:19
