Environments: Cradle of Life in progress

Here's as far as I got today. I'm calling this one Cradle of Life, depicting a tree / oasis in the middle of an arid desert. I'm going to try working in some birds and little critters flying / crawling around the place.

I sort of feel like it's not totally an environment piece but a design for this tree, but it's got me working on stuff that's not character / creature related for now. Gotta start somewhere!

After doing this image which is turning out to be very optimistic like I'm probably going to want to do the skull and spine castle...

Is that Bambi over there behind that root?!

This is looking pretty sweet...but please don't cheapen it by using the default "maple leaf" photoshop brush. Make your own leaf brushes! :D

but I made that maple leaf brush! haha, I was dropping them down to build up some connotative shapes (along with the round little triangles). They'll get painted over a bunch, so no worries :] Thanks Bill!
