Hey Manilla, 

 

This is looking pretty good so far and I'm glad your still working on stuff. The main thing you can improve on is giving the thatched roof more volume. I would start this by actually faking a little more shadow into the texture and then model and cut the geometry accordingly. This paintover should illustrate what I mean. Also model out a few more rocks at the base and have them break the silhouette more. The texture on this doesn't really need to tile becuase you can just take patches of the geo and copy it around. You can also FFD it if you need the shape to taper. Also check out the tree tutorial Danny did in the CeleryLand section. I think your tree would benefit from baking out custom leaf normals.

 

good luck.

 

Jason
