Such a disappointment.



It looked so much better in my head. Needs tweaking. Or tossing, but I don't really have time for that...

UPDATE: Okay, so much for the birch forest. I tried and I wound up with that... thing. Time to try making oaks.

Oh, it looks fine Miriel. Just tweak it. I think the foliag e and branch structure look great.

I actually love it, Miriel. I think you're being too hard on yourself.
Best thing to do is set it aside for a bit, work on something else, then come back to it, and see if you still think it needs tweaking.
By then, maybe you won't be so sick of looking at it that you want toss it out. ;D

Looks like a nice tree to me.

Looks great to me...might be a lil tall, but aside from that, nothing outright (aka visibly) wrong with it...

Hi, Miriel! Have you seen the announcement from the Stanford Virtual Worlds group about their new software Dryad? It lets you make trees for virtual worlds.

I'm not a designer/builder so I don't know if it's easy or hard or good - but it reminded me of you and your tree struggles :)

Cheers.. Kate

Thanks for the link, Kate! I hadn't known about that. It looks like Dryad exports into .obj, which is exactly what the tree generator I'm doing now does. So I think I'll stick with what I've got for now. :)
