Colossus - Living Garden2 copy.blp

This bundle is marked as useful / simple. Simplicity is bliss, low effort and/or may contain minor bugs.
A crazy idea of mine.
I found myself thinking "Hey! What if i took the Tree of Life and replace the wood textures with bricks?"
This is the result, and i'm personally very satisfied with it.
This MIGHT also be the first in a possible-to-start-with-this-skin series, which (if i actually make it) will be called Project Colossus-

Any feedback is nice,
even though it is preferable if you also tell how to make any improvements you'd like done.
(For Example: If yout think it lacks shading, tell me where, not just that it lacks shading. -.-)

the trouble is that when it wraps around the body, the appearance of bricks is completely lost due to the warping of the wrap. the skin itself could do with some more garden-themed objects and details to help provide a bricked feel; garden gnomes and flowers. stuff like that.

NO Gnomes. :p But more plants is a surething.
I'l also look into adding more shading to the bricks.

Thanks for the rating power :)

Also Tee, in my opinion the bricks look allright, even when wrapped. I guess there aint much to do about it...
Adding more flora now.

Too lazy to right a response. just listen to these guys.

so.. how about redoing all of those default leaves into palm leaves or flowers or whatever.. just that it ain't default leaves

I haven't edited it yet. It's still the first upload. :/
I were on the road to various places to get tests yesterday, and when i finally came home i went to sleep ASAP.
I'l inform you when i've updated it, though you can possibly see it on the first post. :p

Edit: Allright... i'm currently doing some more "Jungle Style" leaves.
I'm making them alot darker, and in some cases alot bigger.
Opinions on that? (screenshot of prototype leaves will be posted later.)

Leaves need to sprout naturally from the cracks in the brick and give it that forgotten feel as well as give some vine flowers
I know the effect your going for is maby something like this

But I think gives it a better effect though I under stand it would be harder maybe use a vine as a brush pallete? and decrease size/rotation/skew/lighting with each one? just a sujjestion good luck!
