Travis Tree Tutorial

A tutorial showing how to make a tree made mostly out of travis bricks and 1×1 plates in your colour of choice (I went with dark green). It’s quite simple but still has a rather organic shape to it. There is a bit of a pattern in it, but this can be fixed by alternating…

Green Travis Tree
