Great colors!

nAsh (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/2/2011 04:08

 Grats, very impressive ! 

Claredeth (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 10/1/2011 22:00

 I knew it was yours, the lighting on the tree is well executed and would have enjoyed seeing care such as that put into the grass.  I suppose we can't have it all though.

Kaiseto (Level 6 Made) @ 9/29/2011 12:23

Crazy colors? I love the palette. I always find my own to be so lacking in imagination. It's cool when people use colors I don't expect in just the right way (blue-gray on the tree, for example"

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 9/29/2011 04:44

Seems like a big improvement over your past work.

Squirrelsquid (Level 4 Rubbish) @ 9/28/2011 08:10


Text is a lil hard to read - but yea - nice it is ;3

I'm glad you were able to come to terms with an appealing palette. I agree that this version carries the best of the last two color schemes.

Ego (Level 6 Commander) @ 9/27/2011 17:06

Link in the comment section is broken. Unfortunate since the blue was my favorite.

This is still awesome though. I really like the beams of light thing. And these colors are definitely better than the previous version.

Kravvon Nar'roth (Level 4 Ensign) @ 9/27/2011 12:52

 The texturing is awesome. Nice work. =)

Qemist (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 9/26/2011 19:21

wow I like it alot!

Badassbill (Level 11 Big Foot) @ 9/26/2011 19:09

Much better than when I last saw it.

slym (Level 8 Ruby) @ 9/26/2011 18:49

Thanks for the comments and critique!

Adarias: I can't help but agree that the other version showed way more of a "Forest of Life" than this one. I'm changing it to somewhat of a happy medium now. It is with the general intention of the greener version, and now has the variety of lighting that the blue one offered. 

Mr. Zachary: Nice to hear! Yeah I agree with the balancing of the tree, I might fix that if I have time to.

Leroy: Taken off! Thank you for that! It looks much better now :D!

neuryel1314 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/26/2011 18:39

 assim é mais gostoso de ver .

Adarias (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 9/26/2011 17:40

 can you have both versions up?  this palette to me feels a lot cheaper than the original, which took a lot of interesting risks.  i've seen a million pieces with this same blue wash, it's just a shortcut to something we're conditioned to think is quiet or moody, but doesn't actually create that emotion.  the other was more rich and rewarding.

Delicious (Level 10 Capo) @ 9/26/2011 17:14

100x better! Very good, this got my vote btw. You should've pulled a root from the middle of the tree too to make it look a bit more balanced, but it looks great regardless. Really good palette.

Jabber (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 9/26/2011 16:53

 reminds me of the Great Deku Tree a lot. i like the moody colors.

Demon11777 (Level 5 Captain) @ 9/26/2011 15:07

 I miss the blue 

SacreDoom (Level 2 Dealer) @ 9/26/2011 12:55

 Uhh, the roots look wierd.


Like, on big mix.

peanutcookie (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 9/26/2011 11:31

 wow love this!

tuaarita (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 9/26/2011 09:08

 Yep take off the black outline. The grass doesn't have it, why should the tree?

asukicco (Level 9 Necrophiliac) @ 9/26/2011 04:34

 8/8, your texturing is superb!

Hapiel (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 9/26/2011 01:29

And yet another great slym scene! :D

Mathias (Level 7 Junk) @ 9/25/2011 23:42

Love the use of dark shading.

Detailing is nicely organic in nature. I can learn from this.

neuryel1314 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/25/2011 23:32

 preferia as cores do outro, queria saber usar esses  programas que vocês  usam o paint ta chato.

skamocore (Level 11 Dolphin) @ 9/25/2011 23:24

I agree with BAB, the other colours were much nicer D:

snowk (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 9/25/2011 23:19

I feel like the black outline ruins it in a ways. It is sooo beautiful and styling otherwise. I wish youd remove it.

Badassbill (Level 11 Big Foot) @ 9/25/2011 23:19

Where'd the other one go with the sexy colours?

Ken. (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/25/2011 22:43

Ths is astonishing work! Very good job! I'll defnitely be taking some notes from this!. :D
