    I think adding a a gradient to the trees would really make them pop out. I.E. each tree has a greenish (and I mean barely greenish, parchmenty... you know what I mean!) hue which is pretty dark at the tip of tree and tapers off before it reaches the bottom.

    That's something I had thought of trying. Wasn't sure if it'd make the trees too overwhelming though. I'll try it out and see.

    But you WANT those trees overwhelming. You want them TERRIFYING... menacing. LIKE THEY'RE RIGHT OUT OF GRIMM BROTHERS' FAIRY TALES. Or better scarier versions of them called, "Terror Tales". SO OVERWHELMING... they're sneaking up on you RIGHT NOW. *breath* Oh my god, they're RIGHT THERE. Holy mother of g-AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH AAAAAAAAAAAAGH AGH. *hmmphf* Ok, maybe overwhelming is a bad idea.

    I see someone has a tree phobia. Or something.

    How's this? (Old trees left in for comparison.)

    It definitely lends them more weight/visibility without being too bold. I like it.

    Something still doesn't seem quite right about 'em (in my opinion). In your latest image, I prefer the old version of the trees to the new one, but something's still off...Unfortunately, I can't think of anything to suggest that isn't obvious (eg adding a green tinge, vertical lines for tree trunks, shadows etc.)

    The spread might be a bit too loose. OR, and this is what I think does it for me, It appears to me that there's a disconnect between the trees and the mountains, the mountains being more detailed and the trees being curvy triangles. Again, just my opinion.

    EDIT: Also, nice terrortree Jally.

    If I tree falls in the woods and no one else is around, it will land on and devour Jalyha. The trees remind me of the part in Cannibal the Musical where a certain fine gentleman shows off his credentials for inclusion in a certain indigenous group. I agree that the mountains are so nice the trees look overly simplified by comparison. As it would be a crime to change the style of the mountains I'd try slightly more detailed trees.

    Why me? D:

    Fitting, though..

    I think maybe just a *tiny* amount of detail to the trees, maybe :/ I like them uncomplicated (especially if they're going to come after me personally...)
