shrub Old West and tutorial
« on: March 26, 2018, 05:46:06 PM »
shrubs in finishing yard





for the trunk I used an assembly of two branches of thyme but you can use what you want or even carve your own trunk I leave this to your creativity



for the sequel you will need this machine infernal I want to specify that I am absolutely not the inventor who simply serves to twist the wire and string to get the branches it works for just about all trees. it's the same principle as commercial trees except they look more natural





you have to put your tree in shape by stretching the wire and paint the branches





all that remains is to cover the branches with glue and plunge them into the flocking and repeat the operation as many times as necessary





there is nothing difficult you can take for god by creating the garden of miniature eden.
in terms of creating the man refer to the textbook lol lol

I like those.

It's good to see a bit of greenery on a Wild West setting  :)

They look good, and accurate enough.  What you're representing is more or less mesquite trees - short, supremely hard (i.e. wreck your truck on a 'small' tree), with prickly light foliage.  Most Old West tables I see don't have nearly enough green on them.  Nice tutorial.
