Ok so here's a contest for all you computer artists out there. The reward is strictly bragging rights :) We've been discussing this tree in another thread and people have commented about the deadwood. If you feel the deadwood needs a different look/design, create a virtual to share your design vision. There are no bad ideas (except perhaps mine) - let's try to use this as an open discussion to compare and contrast.

No disrespect Mojosan, but are you on some kind of medication.

Here's my take. I went in the other direction - literally. I think the jin sticking out the top is distracting and unbalances the tree, so I balanced it to the left.
[EDIT] Now that I look at the other designs, I think I am in agreement with Kong.

Thanks, but I forgot, it does me no good, BT is one of those forums that only allows members to see pictures, and I am a proudly banned ex-member (four years now), so no pictures are visible.

Still an option, never-the-less.

Well I guess I just proved how stupid I really am. Go look at post #2 on this thread, getting old is a bitch.

"No disrespect Mojosan, but are you on some kind of medication. "


:confused: But I even left the little green helmut !

Just out of curiousity, who created this thing anyway? And why would anyone want such a huge hunk of wood clinging to the upper part of the trunk?

Oh well, based on responses to some of my verts......

Mojosan, don't feel bad, I put so much work and time in this tree that I swear I saw it in my refrigerator last night.

Some Italian hack. I posted on another board that we ran out of time last year (actually I ran out of money) more carving to come.

Tell me about it.

OH, yeah, post #2, well almost the same, I left more of a knob where the left jin was and I left the upper jin as well, but other than those two major things, you're right, the same. ;)

Eyes going too, huh?
