    Wip September 2012 Entry:Tree City

    When I read the challenge, I thought of a tree city.

    So here is my try, not sure I can finish by the deadline, but here goes.

    Started by hand drawing a tree.

    It works best if you post your latest as a New reply instead of editing into your first post. Interesting concept looking forward to seeing it develop !!

    So I'm trying to add some house I was hoping for some feed back. Does the yellow houses look to be too crowded and are they lost being underneath the main stair case?

    Is there any format that will protect the stairway near the top and still be small enough file to upload?

    You have a pretty limited palette - maybe a .gif would work?

    Crowded? No - they're on a very limited, slim tree trunk. I EXPECT them to be tight quarters.

    I don't think it's too crowded either. What software are you using? One option would be to go with a limited colour .png. 64 colors or so and you should be good.

    the gif seems to preserve my hard work. Glad you guys don't think to crowded because your right there is not much room. I still need to add a barracks of some kind on the bottom floor. And I still need to work on that lower left branch. As well as reduce the amount of yellow.

    Using MS Paint? Wow! That is HARDCORE. You get rep just for that.

    Rep indeed!!! did not think MS Paint at all

    Nicely put together, but was wondering about the scale. Not that it changes what you have done, but I am thinking this is for a Pixie type community...
