Toby Skybuckle: Colour Design Piece

This still's muddy colours are right from those photos of an old tree I took by the side of my town's river, today afternoon.

At the moment, I'm working on a kind of colour bible for each scenery of TS1. And in this instance, I generated a nice bark pattern, too, no?

Update: Btw, nice find on BoDoi: "Lucky Luke version canard" - Hey, I'm from down under yet again... :)

Update 2: Jake was in one of his masterstroke moods again: A Map of Whoville


  1. Wow, a new adventure...greate! I love the old tree stile!!

  2. Another beautiful design. I love the colors of the background, it reminds me a little bit of Dagobah. Well, maybe everything reminds me of "Star Wars", :D
