It's looking pretty.
Why not try again to add some leaves, it would look even prettier ;)

I really like the bench model, but the ground texture makes me feel a bit dizzy :)

I don't know if it was intentional, but it creates a very interesting Escher-ish effect...

I agree, the modeling is very good but the texturing could use some improvement.

Try reducing the grass and the stones size to a more proportionate size.

To do this, select the grass or stone faces, click on the UV button and within the yellow circle, drag your mouse diagonally while holding the middle button pressed.

thanks for your feedback, it gives me motivation to keep modeling. for grass textures, i know they suck, but i couldnt make them better. i'll try again later.
And for Escher-ish effect, it was unintentional, probably just ortho look made it.

Edit: here are improved textures.

Off to a great start there, dkobol! I like how readily you take on the suggestions... those leaves on your plant came out nicely formed.

The park bench is pretty good, too... and you're showing a fine adaptation to the use of textures.

All in all, very cool, especially considering these are your very first works.

Almost perfect ;)

The grass is perfect but the stones show stripes and it is not your fault, it's the texture image that has one edge showing darker than the rest and that is what creates the stripes in your image.

Here's a brick image that will tile better.

ok, my next creation. it's no big deal, little encampment.


here is guard tower


i think guard tower came out pretty good, but encampment on overall could be better.

waiting for your feedback, love you all (not in a weird way ;))

wow, you are a better beginner than me. Though I was using a old labtop and didn't know how to run Anim8or on Vista.
