Tree of the knowledge of good and evil

Hello,

I created this image to learn using the skin modifier a bit better (it’s preaty easy). It works great for trees and their roots. Criticism is welcome.


Thank you for taking your time to look at it :slight_smile:

Looks awesome! I’m really liking the colors here.
Nice work!

I wish there was a better separation of the tree. To make it the main focus.

Thank you for your criticism, the tree and background actually appear too flat, there’s too little contrast.

Did you use HDR?

Yes, I used an HDR-Image, but just very dim. Mainly the light comes from sun lamps. The HDRI is just there to give it a tad of blue, skyish color (if skyish is a word :). The sky you can see in the finished image is a photo. I put it in in postproduction (I set the world background to transparent).
