The theme for this month:

THE TREE


Inspiration image by ZUPZUP

An image where a tree is the focal point. I had in mind something majestic or epic, but feel free to explore the theme.

2D and 3D accepted, digital and not, finished or sketched. Feel free to cross-post images into other relevant threads, and to post older images that fit the theme. The more the better.

beautiful works, both guys!

must it be only 1 tree? hehe I did like 100 trees in single image hehe

quintus, I like idea about scribble thread.. because it is not fun if one has to hide because he feels he spams too much. I want do some scribbles to generate ideas without worrying about quality.. speedpainting thread kinda got "high" status..

I want get relaxed and scribble for 30min. I even created scribble folder for images as trees below.

Very Happy Im planning to create "Analog" thread to encourage for more traditional work Wink


now comes 100 trees images lol

Funnily enough, a lone tree being the focal point in an enviourment that doesn't suit its needs is probably one of my favourite themes, got like 3 sketchbooks full of images like that... especially dead trees in lush enviourments.... I feel like I'm gonna spam this thread to death once I get home next week... Surprised

Great to see everyones view on "the tree" Smile

Here's a few older ones..

Tomasis, It was quite interesting actually, I removed paint in a seperate layer on that one. I am still looking for that glazing tecnique digitally, lots to be done with that .. I think.
Thank you. Smile I like the stuff you're working on btw, those knights and the oil paintings.

Nide, wow beautiful

Sup_Ben, I really like your brush strokes. Good balance in the latest one.

That was a great month, and probably equal to the original Squares as best theme so far. Great stuff.
