A small tree sprite for a Dwarf Fortress visualiser. I hope to create a whole set in this style. Only a few pieces will be animated so I'll probably be posting the more work intensive ones separately, while bunding the static ones and simple animations together.

Thanks to the Pixelation crew for critique on this one!

 There seems to be a mini-fad of sorts going on with tiny trees in the gallery, but this one's easily the most appealing out of them all. The animation doesn't look very windy though- I feel this is because the entire tree is rustling all at once, whereas an object moving in the wind undulates, with a flowing movement that travels across the object in a wavelike motion. Visualize how a flag would move!

Toast- you mean the one that is part of the longer sequence?

Maybe that's what's annoying louise.

 That's really nice, not overdone at all. I'm not liking the quick 2-frame shaking too much though, seems too fast and unnatural.

Something about the animation is really annoying me, but I still like it.  I'm jealous of anyone that can do pixel trees properly

 There's a very good chance I'll be studying this.

Nice wind effect.
