Rock Tree


I like the way this tree turned out because it kind of reminds me of an album cover by Roger Dean or Rodney Matthews for some progressive rock band in the 70's.

Awesome! I love the hanging rings of bark! And the candy-cane striping and the shapes too. And the fading in/out of detail. There is a whole lot going right in this image and it adds up to that appeal word again.

I like the green going up into the trunk. This looks like a place I would go for some shade if I didn't mind falling to my death. Very nice.

I love your style. It's so unique. I love the fully rendered verson of this. Your use of curved and srtaight lines together is alway amazing.

Your sketch wasn't good enough... no... you had to go and add color and blow my mind. I won't be able to think again for another 2 days. Thanks a lot Kevin. Awesome! I love the mystical qualities of this piece. Makes me wish there was such a place so I could visit.

I believe the 70's rock band you are referring to is YES, from their Roundabout Album (and yes, I'm THAT old). Love your work Kevin. Currently watching your lesson on using Photoshop at SVSLearn.com
