Forest setting

5 months 7 hours ago - 5 months 7 hours ago #60061 by Jon
Hi All,

I currently have a forest setting ( 7 trees ) in a single group design and wish to redesign it and replant it into a seperate group setting.

My question is.... do I have both groups as uneven numbers for example 3 and 5 or
do I have the total number of trees as uneven 3 and 6

Thanks in advance
Jon

Hi Jon

For me, I would still have them as uneven numbers and have the dominant tree in the foreground and the smaller ones to the back for the depth of field.

Are you going for something like this?

Thank you JC,
Yes, something very similar. So you mean total trees being uneven? For example 3 and 6?

Hi

Yes as far as I can remember it is uneven up to a total of 9 trees in one group and then they can be even, I did it once for a stir and all the experts stood around and counted eight.

I told them I was going to get them all a windmill on a stick. :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

I think that it has something to do with artistic flair of making it realistic, rather than a rule.

It would be good for all if you could post up progress shots if possible.

Hi Jon

This is a good link to have a look at and the forest sketch is nice as well to give you an idea.

Thank you JC, you’re a good man who’s always quick to help..... it’s really appreciated!

This is the setting that I’m redoing!
And I’m in the process of making a new pot for it.... I’ll do progress shots on that when it’s complete.



This is the swamp setting that I’ll be redesigning...



And replacing it with this..... WIP

Jon
