Palm Tree Tutorial

A short tutorial showing how palm trees can be built. This is by no means my design, or anything new for that matter. But I had to make a tutorial for it for a tree building workshop I held recently, so I figured I might as well post it 🙂 The design is rather commonplace…

Element Experimentation: Cherry Blossom

I came up with this design while building a nature build for a competition, and have since had quite a few requests for a tutorial on this technique. So…
