Tree #4 (F2U with link back) by MomentaryUnicorn Tree #4 (F2U with link back) by MomentaryUnicorn
Commission Information

I'm having a hard time convincing myself to put detail into the leaves.  D:
I used a reference image, though its not entirely the same but I wanted something to look at to get an idea of what I should be doing.

I really enjoy this pixel and I can really relate to the artist's struggles of drawing trees and such, because I can understand how difficult they are. After looking at the reference the artist used, I had to give a high score with vision because what they were going for was a good idea and had purpose.

However, because that purpose was practicing pixeling a tree, there wasn't much originality, concept, composition, etc. This is why I had to give a lower score on originality. Overall, I think the execution was very nice and after looking at the reference, the artist did really well. Even though the colors were changed, that was a minor detail that didn't really harm the product. In fact, I think it helped give it a better look than ending up with just a bright, vibrant green that is seen everywhere in tree illustrations. The more cool, bluish green made it a bit more unique.

The two biggest improvements that could have been made were including highlights on the tops of the tree to give it just a bit more value, and also to show off the branches through the leaves a bit more. I think how the artist added more foliage than what was on the reference kind of took away a little. But this is something that can be debated and could be considered a matter of opinion. In the end, I really like this small little pixel endeavor and I think it turned out nicely. The artist should be proud and I'm sure this was good practice. :)
