    Hello, folks. I'm going to be working on an oriental-themed PL_ map in the near future, and for this project, I require trees that are not pine.

    So anyway, my request in short is a few Japanese Cherry Blossom trees.

    Obviously, credit will be shoved upon anyone who helps me out. I'm just now starting to learn Maya, and this seems like something I'd have problems with, or I'd try it myself. Annnnnnyway, here's an example of what I'm looking for:

    I'd be hoping for maybe a few variants of the tree, just so if I have multiple trees in one area of the map, they don't look identical, etc.

    Thanks a lot in advance!

    Hmm. I imagine TF2 cherry trees as having something more like guazy marshmallowy pink polyclouds. Not sure why.

    Aly, that is amazing. You need to totally finish those trees. <3

    I love how that example looks, really. It'd fit my map perfectly once I get it started. :D :D

    Yay. :D

    It's good to know I'm not the only one who wants this. Aly, you are the bomb, once again. Can't wait to see the finished product(s). =D

    Considering I'm making it for a slew of other people now, do you think the flowers should be smaller?

    Maybe a little. And I might also suggest making a pink version and a white version, since it seems like they bloom both ways, and it might make for more variation if someone's using more than one tree next to each other. <3 <3

    Smaller would be good in my opinion. :)

    Having spent some years in an environment with lots of cherry trees (although still a somewhat indoorsy fellow) I'd like to reiterate what I said about guazy clouds. Unless it's a Cherry Potted Plant, there will be far too many blooms to show each individual flower, and going down that route will either have something that is too high-poly to use or else something where each flower looks too odd to fit in. If it's for TF2, a certain amount of impressionism could actually fit well.

    That is true. /agree with Terr here. Cloudy blossoms could actually work pretty well with this thing.

    Either way, I'll be really happy when i see the finished product, regardless. :D

    I do like that idea. I might try that.

    I will do a few variations of models, with 2-3 skins each (They'd probably all could use the same textures)
