Two months in the making, one hundred pixel art trees! Each and every one has a unique look that distinguishes them from the previous one and is based on an existing tree. I skirted the definition of tree pretty loosely for a few but they were interesting enough to get a pass. A complete list of the species in order of appearance (with references) can be found here: http://pastebin.com/BDdfFRBw
Some notable trees:
#56 - Rainbow Eucalyptus: A tree with multicolored bark, which changes colors as it ages.
#68 - Silver Princess Tree: One of the most unique looking trees I’ve seen in my search for trees.
#90 - Medusa’s Head: Cutting it close with the definition of a tree, but it earns its nickname with a cool tangled head.
#95 - Faux de Verzy: The wildest looking trees I ever saw. Their branches twist and turn in unpredictable ways and they look like they are crawling out of the netherworld.
#74 - Shagbark Hickory: A tree with a distinct bark that looks like it’s constantly peeling off.
#51 - Snow-In-Summer: A tree with blooming flowers that grow to create the illusion that snow is covering the tree.
#20 - Crooked Forest: A forest of trees in Poland with the unique trait that every tree is bent in the exact same, sickle-esque shape.
#26 - Basket Tree: A natural sculpture that was created by weaving together separate trees, earning its Basket namesake.
as an apology for shoving my for sale posts on your dash so frequently, here’s a preview of my semester project in my advanced illustration class. i’m going to get some real pictures of these guys tomorrow, and i’ll post the illustrations then as well, but here are these in the mean time!
