Tree and layered depth stuff.

I'm using my tree from last week for the depth assignment for this week. The scene doesn't have any lights at the moment because I couldn't figure out how to get a skylight to properly cast shadows with all the opacity maps all over the place. It also desperately needs fog, but that had trouble with the opacity maps too.

A few of the layers I painted for the scene:

Diffuse maps for the tree and rock:

Ideally it will look like this when finished, I hope:

Also probably needs more unicorns, heroic gentlemanly teapots with eternal flaming ice swords, and unfortunate plot twists.

Here's a couple of sites that I've found interesting or helpful:

All of them have some excellent tutorials, many in video form. Eat3d in particular has some great interviews with game development artists.
