The not-entirely-original tree stump

Note; This was referenced off a painting by Apofiss found here:

I did this a while ago for fun/modeling practice, but I figured I might as well post it here.

Original render

A newer higher poly and fixed version…
The normals were off in the first render, but it gave it a very interesting and pretty artistic contrast. I can’t decide which one I like better, and I’m too lazy to go changing the shading types for the new model just in case it would look good.

I wanted to make the roots blend into the ground more smoothly, but I didn’t know how to do that. :spin:

Very nice ! I like the lighting and the colors chosen.

I like it too. I love the texture on the tree, it feels soft! and love the color! there is something reassuring about this image… maybe it reminds me of toy I had when I was a kid!

good Job!


I like it, good work!

Can you tell me how you archieved this colors? I mean… this colored shadows and so on =D
They look great! BI or cycles?
I really love this!

Dude, lovely colors. You definitely hit Apofiss’s vein.

Aw this is cool, how exactly did you get the bump of that texture? Can you show the setup? This is cycles right?
