    Way to go GP, congrats man.

    Wip Two trees from the same trunk and branches

    I must be getting lazy, or else I really like the way this trunk turned out, well both I think!

    I created what I call the mulberry tree first with green leafy vegetation. Then being lazy, I decided I needed to make a "Sakura" cherry blossom tree. Totally on experiment and hand-drew about ten flowers, gave them white petals and some yellow interior color. Then I copied and pasted them all over to get the following result.

    I'm sure I've seen pink flowered cherry blossom trees as well, so I might create a third tree out this, maybe I'll just do a pink blossom on a different trunk - might get too redundant otherwise.

    Two trees with one trunk... enjoy!

    Wip I lied, one more same trunk...

    I said it would be too redundant, but I did it anyway. I used the same trunk as the previous two, but placed pink cherry blossom flowers instead. This time I was more controlled in flower placement, than on the white and I like it much better.

    I plan to not only redo the white flowered one, I'm putting it on a different trunk. Not only that, I think the clumped flower technique, looks better than the blanket of leaves I have on the leafy first use of the same trunk. I am going to make clumps of hand-drawn leaves, colored then placed on the trees I've already created (the red maple anyway).

    Anyway, next tree - Pink Sakura Cherry Blossom Tree.

    Praise The continued creation of beauty

    Hello, Gamerprinter.

    I really love what you are creating within this series of objects. They are all so beautiful. Thank you so very much for sharing your creativity with us and thank you for these beautiful objects.

    I was so surprised when ravells posted his Japanese print made with your objects. I have been working on one myself for you. It is not near complete and won't be for a while as I continue to "tinker" with it.

    If ravells doesn't mind, I would still like to post it in your thread once I've completed it?

    Thanks and again, thank you for sharing yourself.

    Regards,

    Gary

    Don't just talk about them! Download the symbols and try and make maps / pictures with them....this is the best feedback we can give GP as to how well the symbols work together!

    Post Just a note...

    Just a note for those following this thread. I intend to create more, eventually completing this project. However, I just received a huge commission from Profantasy software, which will dominate my map-making time this coming month. I will try to squeeze in extra objects now and again, during that time, but expect a slow down, as my workload is very heavy at this time.

    I apologize for those awaiting the next Japanese object, please be patient!

    Post Vandy's Japanese Print

    Hi, All.

    Well, I've finished my version of a Ukiyo-e Japanese print. I certainly don't believe that it would be considered exactly the correct style but I went more for artistic "look and feel" than I did for exact style.

    My special thanks to gamerprinter for providing such wonderful symbols with which to work. Here is my print:

    Very nice....Of course, you could make it a bit better by adding an outflow for the river going off either the left of the right side and adding a path to the castle thingy...

    I really like the folded/crumpled paper look you added to the printed area... nice touch.
