The Great Deku Tree

Submitted by Zerox
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
This is the Great Deku Tree of Kokiri Forest. He's the one who gives Link the Kokiri Emerald. I've been told its not that bad of a model. But meh I personally think its an epic failure texture wise. The untextured mesh looked so much nicer in milkshape. T.T Anyway here you go. If anyone has any advice for improving it I would appreciate it.

This model only uses In-Game Textures. I think thats part of its failure in the stretched texture looking aspect. XD

So for those who don't know who/what it is here's what he's supposed to look like:

Update: Now has Morph and Morph Alternate animations for his mouth to open and close properly with movement.

Update 2: Okay so I randomly decided I wanted to fix this today. So I redid the tree top and in my opinion it's much nicer looking. I also tried adding the fairies around it but it's a quite complex effect. So instead I just removed everything but the fairies from the Fountain of Health and I'm uploading it as this model's portrait model. It's not really the portrait though. Just take the fairy effect and make it a doodad with no pathing. Then you can can place it over the center of the Deku Tree and the effects will work just fine.

    lol it must be weird hearing the tree telling you to go inside him D:
    Anyways, it may be a simple mesh, but it's well wrapped for using ingame textures. :p

    Edit: Dang. D: I thought she removed that D: (world tree texture)

    I agree but you used best texture just change UV Mapping and it will be fine,and add it a nose and it should be excellent.O and add eyebrows and mustache,your model dont have those so that is why you think it is bad

    If you like weed and other medical drugs plus you are into mapping, I suggest this model.

    Zerox, the model in overal is good, the filesize is also good, you used ingame textures. What I don't like is it's kinda weird looking. I suggest you improve it a little bit since you still got plenty of space.

    You know, the texture actualy looks very similar to the one the Deku Tree actually had in the game, so it matches it very well. 9/10 in reality, but since i only have 5 itll have to be 4/5

    Cool, the deku tree.

    But it would be really nice too, if there was this shiny rain and some fairies around the tree as in the game, and also there should be some more leafs and details, because i tested it ingame with the actual size of the deku tree (around 40 meters maybe=?^^)
    Its not detailed enough for this big object in my opinion. An animation with falling leafs, as when he dies would be great too.

    Please take this as constructive criticism, because im not good at modeling, but i know something about zelda.

    Explain more. Anyone desiring to have particles is free to edit it and add them as I'm not sure how I would do it for him.
