Colossus - Living Garden2 copy.blp

Submitted by Dragonson
This bundle is marked as substandard. It may contain bugs, not perform optimally or otherwise be in violation of the submission rules.
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. -.-)

    I love the idea, but IMO you should add some shading on the bricks.

    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.

    Oh, there is. Compare your skin to this pic:

    See the difference?

    I do indeed.
    One thing that i myself have thought about is that theese bricks are round, and not flat.
    Also, i'm not making my bricks multicolored. :p

    Well, what I tried to point out is that there are gaps into the wall between the bricks, while your skin is flat. There's no problem in the round bricks, I've seen that idea before, but you need to make the brick look like bricks, not paint.

    I see your point.
    Though, i personally though of the black lines as theese gaps.
    They have to be white? :p

    No, they don't have to be white, but it would probably be easier.
    I think you need to make them a little broader, so that you can fit in shadows between them(as seen in the picture).

    Do this and I'm certain that this will look great.
